    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 4.54

      It was noted in Section 3.13 that John M. Petty's parents, Thomas Petty Sr. and Jane (Darwin) Petty sold their remaining land in Dickson Co., TN, to their son James Darwin Petty on 2 April 1834 and moved to Benton Co., TN, in 1835. They were accompanied by their youngest daughter, Keziah A. Petty and the families of their sons, John M. Petty and Robert Cowan Darwin making up the party.

      I don't know when John and his family left Benton Co., TN, for Texas but there is a possibility that they travelled there with his brothers, James and George and their respective families, around 1848. However, John decided to settle in Upshur Co., TX, while his two brothers made their homes further west in Navarro Co., TX, which is almost south of Dallas.
