    Notes 
    • Commentary: DWD 4.64

      Samuel married Margaret Jefferson Wells about 1825 and died prematurely in Dickson Co., TN, four years later in 1829. There is no record of the cause of death, whether from illness or an accident but one wonders if a contributory cause of death was due to a law suit dated 5 April 1826 brought against Samuel shortly after his marriage to Margaret Petty, when Nancy Redden claimed that Samuel Petty was the father of her child (who I believe was named Martha). Whatever the outcome of the trial, Margaret Petty became a widow without any means of support and would be married two years later to Robert Cowan Petty, who was a cousin to Samuel Petty, and the account of their lives is given in Section 4.57.
