Daniel Webster & Nancy Jane Garrett Petty
The above picture is of my great grandparents, on my mother's side, Daniel Webster Petty (1843-1913) and Nancy Jane Garrett (1850-1929). Daniel was born North Carolina, probably McDowell County, but spent his youth in the Fannin County, Georgia, where his wife was born. And that is where they married.
December 31, 1862 - Daniel Enlisted in the Confederate Army Co B, 65th Regiment, Ga. Infantry. Daniel spent a good bit of time sick in the hospital and finally became a member of the medical corp. There, he contacted piles, which he suffered with the rest of his life.
Daniel's unit saw action in Mobile, Alabama, and several battles that his unit had in common with my great grandfather William A. Trammell (then - now Hunter) unit NC 39TH Infantry, Co. I. And William spent some time in hospital care too. I wonder if they ran into each other - maybe talked to each other, each not knowing their genes would meet about 70 some-odd years later. It is a small world and even smaller then.
In 1890, at age 46, Daniel and his family moved to Murray County, Georgia. He had several siblings who already moved there.
