    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 3.19

      Jerusha Jane Darwin was the third member of James Darwin's family to marry into the Petty family. Her husband, Solomon Petty, wasn't a son of James Petty, Sr., but was probably the illegitimate son of James Petty's daughter Catherine.

      It is believed that Jerusha and Solomon Petty along with their daughters Cynthia and Mahala left S. Carolina for Tennessee about 1814 in the company of the family of Gabriel and Sarah (Darwin) Petty and arrived in Hickman County in the autumn of 1814. They probably lived on the land of Thomas Petty for the first few years of their settlement and both families are still shown in Hickman County on the 1820 census.

      On 2 July 1824, Solomon Petty received a state grant for 70 acres of land in Dickson County, TN, on Turkey Creek of the Pine River and this tract of land was adjacent to the south boundary line of Gabriel Petty's property (DB D p.450 / registered 13 Mar. 1829).
