In Reply to: Re: JOHN O. PETTUS and wife ELIZABETH HARRISON GILLIAM, Charlotte Co., VA by William Pettus of 937

From the 1850 Mortality Index, John O. Pettus died Oct 1850 from "chronic" at the age of 80 in Charlotte. This would be in line with the tax records of 1850, but the age does not seem correct in light of the birth dates I have seen for John's parents, that would also make him considerably older than his wife, Elizabeth H. Gilliam. What do you think? I have not seen the original.
