Need help with brick wall!!!!!!!!
Posted by: Sherri Elliott (ID *****3812) Date: March 19, 2005 at 16:31:09

Hope someone can help....according to family history my Smiths and the Pettus from York SC lived and moved together as well as intermarried from many generations....they immigrated from SC to GA to AR together...here is the brick wall...Have traced my Smiths back to 1820 York SC living between John D O K Pettus and Mary Pettus...then my James Smith moved to GA and from there to AR...

Three of his grandchildren..two sons and a daughter of John Madison Smith and Elizabeth Bradley married Pettus'

John William Smith married Martha Jane Pettus b 17 Dec 1851(who according to family was an orphan)

George Daniel Smith married Mary Eluria Pettus who was born in Decatur Twiggs GA Her father was supposedly Isaac Pettus
mother Mary Ann Reynolds

Emily A (Nancy E on the marriage license) Smith married John W Pettus 16 Nov 1876 Saline Co AR...he was 19 and she was 14

I would like to know the parents of Martha Jane, Mary Eluria (even though Isaac is supposedly her father I can not find an Isaac Pettus) and John W Pettus...

I might have a maybe on John W Pettus as the son of William Wadkins Pettus (whose father was William Pettus and mother was Mary Knox) as he is the right age...born in 1857 in TN...

Does anyone have any information that will help me connect the Pettus' line?

Sherri
