I would just like to share a bit of tentative info w/re to a possible PETTY family reunion which is to take place in your county, hopefully, this summer.? As many of you know, Moses PETTY, of Perry Co., OH and s/o Joseph and Elizabeth PETTY, came to Lawrence Co. and settled in what became Petty Tp.?I think.? He had his sister who married a PARGIN w/ him and other siblings followed.? There may still be descendants of these families in the area and I would like to invite you to attend when the final plans are made.? We will be sure to post info here as well as other places over the area.? We have an area person who will be in charge of that distribution.
I am writing because I subscribe to this digest, I have corresponded w/ other researchers on this county, and I manage the Petty Family Place website for the descendants of Joseph and Elizabeth.
So, watch for our dates and come on out and join us.? My line stayed in OH so I have all of these cousins to meet also.? In 2001, I hosted a group of 13 in OH and we toured the original home place.? Now, we hope to do the same in IL or at least find the location for the early settlers.
