In Reply to: Portrait of Thomas Pettus? by Sharman Burson Ramsey of 941

Having done extensive research on Thomas Pettus of the Virginia Council for over 30 years, I feel quite sure that no portraits of him or his immediate descendants are still extant, if indeed any were ever made. Of course, numerous artifacts, including personal items, were found by archaeologists at the site of his home, Littletown, in James City County, about 1973. You can find pictures of some of the Littletown artifacts in Dr. William M. Kelso's book on Kingmill Plantations published about 15 years ago by Academic Press. One can get some idea of how Thomas might have dressed by looking at pictures of Governor Sir William Berkeley, Knt., or some of his contemporaries on the council.
