Re: Kentucky, Indiana, Texas Petty's, Dudley Petty 1819
I think I might be able to help you with some information on Dudley PETTY's family.I've done a little research on this family thinking they might fit into my PETTYs [Joseph PETTY Sr (1713-1785) of VA].
I believe Dudley was married on 26 Dec 1849 in Vigo Co IN to either Christian (Christy Ann?) BRIDWELL or Catherine BRODWELL.In 1850 they were in Honey Creek, Vigo Co, IN; in 1860 in Mt Washington Dist, Bullitt Co, KY; and in 1870 in Woods, Jefferson Co, KY.
These may be their children:John C. b. ~1849, Caroline b. ~1854, Samuel B. b. ~1856, Alice b. 1858, Margaret E. b. ~1860, Lily B. b. ~1862, Rosella D. b. ~1864, Mary b. ~1865, Robert Lee b. ~1869, William M. b. ~1872.

I'd like to talk to you more about this family.
