Hi Cheryl. Thanks for the information. I don't know S. Petteway's name either but I have that she was a daughter of Paton Petteway and sister of Micajah & Mabrey Petteway. (I think I picked the relationship up from a deed but don't have the documentation). That was the Mabrey who married Hestere Willey in 1817.
I am a descendant of Robert Petteway who was brother to Paton, I believe. His wife was Ruth Webb. Their son Wm. R. m Kitty Sparkman & their 7 children included Susan Caroline who m. Jeremiah Aman & Eliza E. who m. David Franklin Aman, my gggf.
I am pretty sure, from the similar names, that these Petteways were part of the Edgecombe County Petteways. Do you agree?
I have my lines pretty much worked out & would be glad to share anything I might have that you do not. I am a probable Rhodes descendant too & would appreciate knowing about any new information you find. (I say probable b/c I am descended from Daniel Mashburn & his first wife was Elizabeth Rhodes but his second wife was Elizabeth Lloyd & I don't have marriage dates or death dates for either of them. I believe my ancestress, Rachel Marshburn was one of the older children which would point to the Rhodes wife. Thanks again for your response. If you want to e-mail me, it's
