John and Mary Wiseman Puett may well have been the parents of John Puett who married Mary Vestal. Confusing to think that John and Mary are parents of John and Mary!?! Anyhow, John Puett married Mary Vestal. She was born in Surry County North Carolina on Dec. 21, 1796. Children of John and Mary Vestal Puett are: Lucinda born 1819, William Johnson Puett 1820, Daniel Murchison 1829, Joseph Nelson Puett 1831, Caroline 1838 and Nancy and Mary. A note re the will of John Puett says his son Joseph Nelson died in 1858 and his wife married a George W. Crump. John Puett bequeathed lands to his grandsons William Monroe Puett and Joseph Nelson Puett Jr, PROVIDED THAT George W. Crump or his wife NEVER be permitted to live there. John Puett died 1872 and buried with his wife Mary who died in 1864. His son Wiliam Johnson Puett and wife are buried at a place called Houck's burial ground in Caldwell County. It is important to note that Mary Wiseman Puett is buried at a place called Littlejohn. Her marker reads May Puett June 1865 about 100 years old.
