Surnames: Petty, Longwith
I have little to go on. My great grand father was James K Petty and he married Sarah Longwith. Just another curious question. Richard Petty the race driver; I sure he belongs to us somewhere. My mother said he came from her neck of the woods. She came from the indian reservation, but ended up in Vinita Ok. to graduate from high school. Any thoughts on this. Sherman

I will have to look at my history before I can reply correctly. Petty is my mother-in-laws maiden name.

Yes, this is what I have also, but I have not done or copied any information on James F. Petty. I show F. as Franklin; and his son as Ross. I havn't found any proof of Cherokee blood in the Petty line. I have mine through the my grandmother side. (Ghormley)If you have some facts on James F. and Ross Petty would love to have it. I would be glad to share my Petty information. James K. is buried in Ward Cemetery, Delaware Co., Ok. I think he was in the Civil War but in looking just now I see I havn't put it on my Family Ancestry facts sheet; so I am going to have to go into my file cabnet. SHERMAN MACE

Thanks so much for answering but I'm 63 and James K. was my great-great grandfather and on our Indian papers it clearly shows Frederick.......My great grandmothers name was Mary J. Ross before she married James F. But she must have passed away because he remarried a Maggie and they had Arly and Arvy Petty in Oklahoma.. My original searching was to go back farther to James K. and Sarah's parents, etc..and where they came from, but now I'm confused and not sure if this James K. Is the right one.....

Well,--I got you on years! I'll be 69 this year. I pulled my list for they dawes roll numbers; and I can find my grandmother,but not my grandfather John Greenberry Petty. She could by her mother obtained numbers for them just like I did from my mother's number. I don't find James K.,but James K. died 1900 six years before the dead line for registering. I have looked in the past for a Petty connection to the Cherokees but no luck. My grandfather John Petty ran a store and post office on the reservation and could only have done that by his wife blood line. I would be very interested in what you have on this. James K. has been a mistery as he had a wife before Sarah longwith. Would you know who? What does the K. stand for. Can you tell my anything about his Civil War Duties. I'll share that with you when I relocate it. I have a article here I'll have to find on the Petty history. I think it is English. In the mean time can you give me statistic dates for James Franklin and his wife. Good talking with you

I think the reason my grandfather, George Ross Petty, had Indian blood must have been through his mother, Mary J. Ross---James F. Petty first wife (I think, maybe that's why there is confusion). But I don't think James Franklin Petty was his father unless someone put wrong info on the Dawes Roll.....it clearly states that his mother was Sarah........

I have checked my records that have been past down to me that his middle name was Franklin. Is that what you show? I read somewhere where someone had a different middle name. Maybe I put too much faith in the Dawes Roll; I tend to believe what it says as it is an official govt. document--and you know we can alway trust what the govt. tells us!!! Have you received your Cherokee Registration number. Because they do their own research when you apply. I had to show my hertiage back to my grandmother who was full blood. In my case it wasn't hard because my grandmother wrote a biography that traced it back to about 1750. If you have enough information and apply you will know, because they won't register you with the dawes number and your own data for them to check. You can pay them to research I think? Sherman
