Surnames: Petty
I am researching the Petty family that lived in Henderson County TN in 1850 up to now.
Looks like there were two or more families in Henderson in the 1850 census. One family had children born in Alabama and another had children born in VA and yet another with children born in TN.
I descended from the family born in TN and possible the one born in VA.
I can't like the 3 families as of yet.
Cynthia was the the head of the family born in AL.
I would like to hear from others researching the families in Henderson County TN.

No, I don't think I have any of those people in my family line but who knows.
Right now I can't use my familytreemaker so I can't look at the files.
It is possible even if they aren't direct line they could still be related. Our line has not been traced back further than 1850 by me.

I hope we can connect,but I have little to go on. My great gr father was James K. Petty b.1835 in Tenn., d. 1900. His wife was Sarah R. Longwith. She was born in Mc Minn Co. Tenn. The chances are that James was a close neighbor and that how they met. His Children were (F)Orlena 1867,James F.,1868, John G,1872 (My grandfather) Walter D.1875,Ellen 1876, Ida ?, (M)ephrain 1879. I have a few pictures of some of his children as adults. Hope we connect, as I would like more information on James K.Petty and family.

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.

Thanks, I don't have a lot going on my mother's side for the petty's. You sound like you have a much greater ability at research then I do. Perhaps if you hold onto this something might come up. I'd bet a dollar on a donut hole were related somewhere. Sherman

I am trying to find Frank Petty dob abt 1856? married to Dicey "Dicie" dob 1858 Hart in 1881 in Texas. The best lead I have had in a while leads me to Henderson Co., TN where there were Pettys and Harts in one area. The only lead I Have gotten on Dicie was on the cencus in TN listed as D.E. Hart. Would appreciate any leads.
