Elijah W. Petty (1858-1927)

Elijah Petty was one of my mother's great uncles. He was born the son of William D. Petty. He was born near Blue Ridge, Fannin County, Ga., and he died in Murray County, Ga., between Chatsworth and Dalton.

He had two marriages. One was with Lizzie Lackie and the other one was with Annie E. A little curious matter: Lizzie at one time was married to another went to the same church and they are all buried in the same church cemetery - and the other man Lizzy was married to was married twice also.

I don't know about Annie. She was wise enough to hide her surname from future nosy family researchers.

He’s got the mustache in the style of the 1900’s. Do you know what year the photo was taken? It is really one from the archives.

Lets see.... he was born in 1858, so he looks about 40, which would probably date the picture between 1895 and 1905. Maybe later, maybe earlier. That isn't exactly an exact time time is it?
