Martha "Mary" Petty Walker (1851-1945)

Mary Petty was the daughter of Elijah Petty. She was born in Fannin County, Ga., and died in the same county. She is buried in the Petty Cemetery just south of Blue Ridge, Ga.

At age 20 she married William Peyton Walker (1850-1936). They had 8 children.

Mary was about 10 years of age when the War Between the States started and lived to see the wrap-up of World War II, if she had all her senses about her in those last years. Imagine all the changes she witnessed. Well, maybe on the back roads of Fannin County the changes didn't come as quick as it would the city folk.
