My line is the James and Judy Petty from Cobb county Georgia. My direct line is there son William Alexander Petty and his wife Caterine Eugenia Wilson Petty.
We had no information on any of the other children born to James and Judy Petty. I recently found some papers in my father in laws things that listed:
Distant cousin to Henry Grady Petty (about 4th cousin) George Henry Petty wife Martha Jane Petty Daughters: Jane Compton and Ethel Petty Smith Son: Quillian Petty
Henry Grady Petty was a son to William Alexander Petty.
Using the above information I began to search in the Cobb county Library. I found the information on Quillian and the last will of George Henry Petty. I then went and got the death certificate for George Henry Petty. The death certificate listed Stephen as the father and the mother's name was difficult to read it looked like a c coch.... and 4 letter after the coch. I looked at census records and found George Henry Petty listed as the son of Stephen Petty and Dicey Petty. I am looking to tie this Stephen with maybe my James Petty. James was born about 1806 in South Carolina. Any help will be appreciated. jpetty firstname.lastname@example.org
