My Petty Genealogy part 3

I like these little undocumented stories handed down through the generations. It seems the Petty line has its share.

Also, it appears that my claim to fame is that my ancestor Elizabeth Marshall, wife of Zachariah Petty, was sister to John Marshall, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. I still haven't figured out to cash-in on that connection.

Anyway, on with our Petty surname genealogy:

Generation No. 3

3. REBECCA3 PETTY (THOMAS2, HUBERT1 PATEY)7 was born Abt. 1701 in , , Va, and died Bef. 1784 in , Culpeper, Va. She married THOMAS SIMMS8 1725 in , , Va. He was born Abt. 1700, and died Unknown.

Notes for REBECCA PETTY:
During the Rev. War, several of her negro slaves were taken captive by Tories. She went to the British camp and demanded to see Gen. Gornwallis. When the sentinel refused to let her pass, she laid a whip to her horse and sprang past then rode up to the Gen's tent and demanded her property. The Gen.asked her to point it out, which she did, and sent an armed escort home with her saying such a brave woman should be rewarded.
