    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 3.15


      The family of Sarah (who was known as Sallie) and Gabriel Petty remained in Union Co., SC, for about ten years until about 1814 when they made the decision to follow in the footsteps of Jane and Thomas Petty to Tennessee. It is believed that they were accompanied by the family of the younger sister, Jerusha Darwin, who was married to Solomon Petty as all three families are shown in the 1820 census in Hickman Co., TN. On the 6 Jan 1820, Thomas Petty was happy to decrease his land holding by selling off 525 acres of his original 1808 purchase to his brother Gabriel.

      Sallie (Darwin) Petty must have died between 1824 (when her last recorded child was born) and 1830 when she fails to be shown on the Tennessee census. Gabriel married again in February 1832 to Sally Edwards in Dickson Co. and I have no further information on his second wife or family. Gabriel is last mentioned in a Dickson Co. court record dated 5 July 1845 in reference to the estate of his son, George Cowen Petty, but fails to appear on the 1850 census, so likewise his death can only be approximated to the period 1845-1850.
