Most of my Pettys were in Henderson County TN. I know there were other Pettys in TN. I know I do not have this family in my family line mostly because I have not determined the family which my greatgrandmother came from. I haven't seen any Pettys in ships list so I assume their name was spelled different or they were indians. The Pettys looked dark in the one picture I have seen of them. Possible their name was Petigrew.
