Don, you posted the following message to the Minor Family genealogy forum back in January 2000:
"Mary Minor is supposed to have married John Pettus Feb., 19, 1738, in VA. John later married Mary Waters and had eight children before his death Nov., 12, 1770. I would like to know if any children were born of his marriage to Mary Minor."
Recently, I tried to respond to your message but never received a reply. Perhaps your email address changed. I hope that you receive this message.
I have seen conflicting accounts of John's marriage. Some writers identified his wife as Mary Minor, while others identified her as Mary Waters. I have always wondered if perhaps John married twice, but I have no evidence other than the fact that some of his children were orphaned when he died in 1770, apparently in his fifties. His wife, mother of at least some of his children, had already died.
I would like very much to know where you found the date of John's marriage to Mary Minor. Do you know of a bible record with that date?
Your help would most appreciated. William W. Pettus IV
