Re: Dabney Pettus-VA.

In Reply to: Re: Dabney Pettus-VA. by William Pettus of 938

The following is what I have regarding John Pettus of Fluvanna County, Virginia.
I am curious if the "Dabney" listed as one of his children is the Dabney mentioned in your reply to
Melinda Fulwood dated June 6th of this year.

Here query was: Which Dabney is this?


Location: Fluvanna County, VA Year: 1802

Abstract: Married in 1801 to Elizabeth Morris, Dabney Pettus, to his "great astonishment & inexpressible mortification," discovered that his wife was "deliver'd of a Mulatto Child." It was "begotten by a negro man slave in the Neighborhood." Pettus seeks a divorce.

My wife's ancestry comes through both Rebecca and Appelona Pettus (both ladies are her 3rd great-grandmothers).
My father-in-law's maternal grandparents were 2nd cousins.

And by the way...is there a "Pettus" family web site?

Thanks!!!
