My gg-grandmother is Zany Petty, born ca1845 in Dekalb County, TN. Her father's name is Jesse Petty and her mother's name is Elzira. I am looking for information on Zany's parents,i.e., place and date of birth, their parents names, etc.. Zany was probably short for Louisiana and I have seen her name as Zana and Zania also. I have also seen various spellings of her mother, Elzira's, name; Alzira, Aliziar and Elsire. Any information you might be able to give me on Jessee and Elzira and their family line would be much apprectited.
