Surnames: Petty
Benjamin W Petty was born 2/24/1879 in Georgia and died 5/21/1917 in Cleveland, Bradley, Tennessee. According to his death record his mother's name was Mary Hall and his father's name was John Petty. I show Mary and her children listed on the 1880 census but not John. I would be interested in any information anyone can give me on Mary, John or any of the others in this line of Petty's. The other areas this particular family are living and have lived in is the Chattanooga, TN area and also Maryland.

Surnames: Petty, Bohannan
I believe my 2nd great-grandfather, John R. Petty, was Benjamin's father. It's a complicated story but John R.'s first wife died in KY in 1876 and most of their younger children went to GA to live with his wife's sister. John R. moved to Whitfield County, GA where his father and a few sisters lived. He married Mary Bohannan there in 1878. Mary later married a William Hall. I believe her current name instead of her maiden name was listed on Benjamin's death certificate.
