Lester Van Huss
RE: Petty Descendants
Thank you James. The only three I can absolutely be sure of is my Grandfather who's funeral I attended and his father and Grandfather who I have always heard stories about. I do know and have completed his siblings which my Grandmother, Mom and Aunts have verified through out my lifetime. Unfortunately the Petty line was not one of my Grandfathers interest due to conflicts between his father and himself. I guess I do not have to tell you where that leaves me when a question comes up about past family members. Outside of my Mom and her sisters knowing his immediate family, Grandpa never spoke much about his family. I have had to be very careful in my research prior to those 3 generations since there is no one who can verify records for me. I can however, research the ones who lived in Texas. Unfortunately our Petty line decided to inhabit most all of Texas which covers a vast area. LOL. If you use Ancestry.com that is where my primary trees are. I have a Maternal and a Paternal tree. The Petty line is on my Maternal tree if you ever wish to take a look. It is public so guest are able to pull it up and look at it. Naturally the living are kept private. I am always looking for others who may know a little more than I have been able to find out. I wish I had a bucket load of info to give you, but I am sure you know more than I do most likely. Hope you are well and you are invited to look at my tree at any time and point out errors should you ever find one. Would love to hear from you if there is anyone you would like for me to check into. I would be more than happy to help you as well. Lester Van Huss

Petty Descendants
James, I am Lester Van Huss and am a descendant of the Petty line on my Mothers side of the family. I have no idea if we share any relation or not, but every chance I get is an opportunity to find out more about my Petty side of the family. My Grandfather never spoke much about his family and it makes research a little difficult sometimes. He as well died shortly before I turned 5 years old so all I have and go on is what I've heard or fortunately found out for myself. I do not know if you have a family tree set up but would like to know if any of the names I am fixing to give you fall into your tree should you have one. My lineage Which I am fairly certain of starting with my Grand father and moving back - William Alfred Petty # 80611272 son of Isaac Daniel "Dan" Petty # 80611157 son of Jeptha Petty and Martha Ellis. I cannot be sure but many references show that Jeptha Petty's father was Stephen Decatur Petty. If any of these are possibly in your family line I would appreciate contacting you and learning more. Thank you for you time, Lester.

That is great news! I am so addicted to all this family ancestry. Never dreamed it would lead me to family still alive.

locating grave of great grandmother
My great grandmother was Rebecca Cunningham Miller. Married to George Jefferson Miller. She was born in 1868 in Ky and died in Oklahoma in 1899. Posts read differently for death. Some say Colgate Ok and others say Carter County ok and others Lehigh cemetery where George is buried. Would love confirmation of grave site. Thank you Dorothy Ellis Hensley

RE: Isaac Walker Bills
Hi,

You are right, Isaac Walker Bills is my GGGrandfather. His dauther, Martha Parthenia (Molly) Bills married Thomas Martin Templeton. One of his other daughters, Tilitha Rowena, married Tom's brother, Levi Young Templeton.

Although I'm not willing to transfer the memorial, I'm more than willing to help you add information to it. Please let me know how I can help. Feel free to send me a private message through the option on Find A Grave.

I look forward to working with you and sharing information. I also have a cousin working on this family through Levi's line.

John Andrew Jackson Hooten #44444690
Hello. My great great grandparents are John Andrew Jackson and Laura Milam Hooten. I've concluded that J. A. J. Hooten's parents are John Hooten Jr. and Susan McCord Hooten of Marshall County, Tennessee. Do you know if this is correct? I understand you descend from Elijah, brother of John Hooten Jr. John Andrew Jackson appears to have migrated to Texas later than his uncles. I have found descendants of J. A. J. and Laura Milam Hooten pretty well. Have you done much research on my branch or know anything about their journey to Texas? I'd love to hear from you.
