It have been about a year since I place a query on your site, so let me run
one by again and see if any new reader might have joined the group who has
some knowledge of the family for which I am researching.
Joseph, Moses, Josiah, (their nephew) PETTY and their sisters Sarah/Sally
PARGIN, Elizabeth PEPPLE and various other family offspring all came from
Perry Co., OH to your area in the 1820s through 1860s and settled in Petty
Tp. in Lawrence Co. They spread out to Sumner, Olney, Edward County, perhaps
Pike Co. and various other points of the state before many years had passed.
They were teachers, some of them, in the Petty School for which they donated
land and in general helped greatly to populate that area of Illinois!
Some of the surnames w/ which they are united are: BOWEN, SENTERS, WESTALL,
LIDEY, MIDDAUGH, VANATTA, BLACK, POLING, POLAND, WAGNER/WAGGONER, SMITH,
SINTON, PURVIS, MCCAW, MCCALLY, LEGG, LATHROP, KLINGER, KING, JUDY, STINE,
HEATH, GRIGGS, HUTCHINSON, PIERCE, EMIG/EMMICK/EMERRICK, ELDER, GRIGGS,
CESSNA, BROOKHART, and TRUEBLOOD are only a few of the surnames. If you had
a PETTY marry into
your line, OR if you are a long lost PETTY cousin, I surely would like to
hear from you. I have some photos w/ which I could surely use some help and
your Aunt Susie or Uncle John might well be one of them in the collection.
These photos are all either OH or IL relatives of Flory Icy PETTY, who lived
and died in OH as a young woman. Two of the photos were taken in IL so your
relatives could easily have been one she knew and admired enough to keep
his/her picture. The entire album is on the Perry County OH site at:
Click on Miscellaneous and then go to the unidentified photos. There are 5
tintypes lightened enough for you to see if perhaps your ancestor is there.
There is a family of 4 which appears to either be older parents w/ the last
two offspring still at home OR they are grandparents w/ two young boys
visiting and/or there is a young couple w/ one male child plus a later photo
of the Mother and child only, perhaps the father died or was killed. He looks
like the relative as opposed to the Mother so please take a look and see if
you know any of them.
Thanks for any help and let me hear from you.
Marjory PETTY Peck Austen, d/o Alva M. Petty, s/o Jacob COLEMAN Petty, s/o

Joseph and Elizabeth PETTY of NJ and Perry Co., OH.
I am interested in finding more information about the family of Chelsea
Cariz, who is listed in the 1930 census as in Denison.
