Notes for OPAL RUBY PETTY:
After all of her siblings were grown, married, and on their own Opal took care of her mother and at times her mother's handicapped brother Walt Ridley.

They lived in various places in Georgia over about a twenty year period: Varnell, Cohutta, Rossville (just outside of Chattanooga), Kennesaw, and several places in Marietta. All near bus lines, since Opal did not own a car and had a family to support.

Her last job, which she had many years was at Stephens Printing Company in Atlanta. She had a stroke about 1965 and had to retire. She still keeps in touch with her ex-co-employees and ex employer.

Every time I have talked to her she was always jolly and witty. And I have noticed that she enjoyed entertaining children, keeping them laughing.

Notes for EDWIN TYSON "ED" HUNTER, SR:
Ed first worked at Glover Machine Works in Marietta where his father worked.
Ed first worked at Glover Machine Works in Marietta where his father worked.
He was in the National Guard. He had two memorable experiences in the guard: (1) He was guarding Calloway Mills against strikers - he was one of the guards guarding the residence of the Calloway Family. A man tried to break into their house. Ed and the man begin to scuffle and they fell off the porch. Ed fell on top of him and it killed the man. He had to appear in front of Governor Eugene Talmadge for him to officially pardon him for the murder. And (2) another time he was guarding the Governor's Mansion in Atlanta. He had orders not to let anyone in unless they had proof of business or an official pass. Eugene's son Herman Talmadge strolled up to enter and Ed refused to let him enter. After that they replaced him with someone who "could recognize the family".
He became a patrolman for the City of Marietta, and worked his way up to be the Chief of the Marietta Police (1949-1952). For a year or so he was a guard at Lockheed. Then he was the Chief of the Cobb County Police. Because of politics he left the county force and worked various jobs as a guard or law enforcer, which included the Kennesaw Police and a deputy of the Cobb County Sheriff's Department. In 1960, he ran with Buna Walker for the Sheriff's office, with Buna to be the Sheriff and Ed to be the chief deputy. They lost to Kermit Sanders (the incumbent). He was a armed truck guard for Wells Fargo when he retired.

Throughout his career as a policeman I have only heard of danger twice. Once he chased a suspect into an alley and the suspect turned around and pointed a gun at him and pulled the trigger - by some miracle it only clicked. Another time an angry arrestee slammed the barred jail door on his hand breaking it.

Little known fact: He had the talents of an artist. He could have been an illustrator or a cartoonist with a little training.

He was a great story teller to little children. He loved to sit a niece or nephew down close to him and tell him a long involved adventure story involving someone of their gender and age. The child would be completely absorbed in the tale that Ed weaved as he told it. Also, shortly before Christmas he would call his young nieces and nephews and tell them he was Santa with a hearty 'Ho Ho' and go over their list with them. He always looked very delighted when he hung up the phone.

He was a very gentle soft spoken man. I only heard him raise his voice once - and that was to our dog that would chase behind us in the car to town. That irritated him.

He didn't give religion a serous thought until he was in his fifties. Then he joined the Crestview Baptist Church and was saved. Then, a couple years later when they moved to west of Marietta he was a charter and active member of Due West Methodist Church.

He always wore plain dark dress pants and either a white dress shirt or a pale blue dress shirt. He never wore anything sporty like a shirt with a design, polo styled shirt or any kind of sport pants or shorts. It just wasn't him.

They lived in various parts of Marietta: Whitlock Avenue, East Dixie Avenue, Atlanta Street, Wayland Street, Manget Street, Richard Street, and Old Hickory Drive.

While we're writing about police, let's pay tribute to Ed Hunter a dedicated, honest officer of 50 years of service who died this week at 76.
Hunter was Cobb County Police chief under Commission Chairman Rholie Ward. When Ward went out of office, Hunter became Marietta police chief.
As county chief, Hunter was involved in an unforgettable incident. Thirty-five years ago, Cobb County was a dry county. If John Q. Citizen wanted a snort he had to "go to the river" to liquor stores in Fulton County along the Chattahoochee River.
But most private clubs in Cobb like the Elks, Legion, Moose, Marietta Country Club and at least two fashionable restaurants served liquor by the drink.
Hunter thought it hypocritical that his officers would arrest someone for having a scant of moonshine while liquor sales continued at private clubs.
So it wasn't surprising when Harvey Hester, the former Congressional Medal of Honor owner of Smyrna's Aunt Fanny's Cabin, rang up Hunter to ask him to arrest an employee who stole booze from the bar and stashed it away in the nearby woods.
Instead, Hunter sent a raiding party to Aunt Fanny's, booked Hester and confiscated a truck load of whiskey. Hunter didn't have a list of who not to arrest. If you violated the law, he arrested you.

POWDER SPRINGS
DOC Petty,
77, optometrist,
stable owner.

Doc Petty got involved with horses to keep his youngest daughter out of trouble. But eventually showing and competing horses came to sustain him as well. "One day I was getting ready to go to a show and he said he wanted to take his horse out and see he could do," said his daughter LaVern Petty Dowdy of Powder Springs.
"And out of a class of 30 horses he won first place, and he was hooked."
For the next 30 years, Mr. Petty became an active of the National Racking Horse Association. A racking horse is trained to walk in a certain gait.
Mr. Petty also owned and ran Rackaway Stables in Powder Springs for 25 years. After he suffered a series of heart attacks, the first at age 50, Mr. Petty left running the stables to Mrs. Dowdy.
"Each time his health would fail him he'd get better and come back to the horses," she said. "He was really calm and nurturing with them, and they were the best of buddies."
The funeral for Leonard Francis "Doc" Petty, 77, of Powder Springs, who died Friday of congestive heart failure at Emory Parkway Medical Center, is 2 p.m. Monday at Bellamy's Powder Springs Funeral Home.
A native of Cohutta, Mr. Petty was one of nine children reared on a farm.
"He told the story of how one day and his brother were riding a horse bareback as fast as they could through the woods and their daddy ran after them trying to stop them," said another daughter, Susan Kirkendoll of Power Spirngs.
"When he caught up with them, he gave them the biggest beating they ever had, but Daddy said he knew it was out of fear and love, because they could have been killed on that horse. But I think he fell in love with riding then," she said.
After serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II, Mr. Petty went to school to become an optometrist, learning to make eyeglasses. He worked for several practices in Georgia before opening his own practice, Petty's Optometrists, in Sandy Springs in the late 1960's.
"I think he liked the fact that it was work he was able to sit quietly and do himself," said Mrs. Kirkendoll.
Mr. Petty brought his first horse, Hidden Black Warrior, in 1973. In the early 1980's, Mr. Petty began riding Warrior on the National Racking Horse Circuit, winning dozens of titles over the next 10 years, including becoming the Georgia State Racking Champion of 1980 and 1981 and winning the Open Walk Bred World Championship Crown in 1985.
In 1994, Warrior and Mr. Petty were inducted into the National Racking Horse Hall of Fame.
Survivors include his wife, Jeanett Petty, Susan Kirkendoll, LaVern Dowdy, both of Powder Springs, and another daughter, LaVonn Timpson of Jonesboro; his son Billy Petty of Lawrenceville; a brother, Wallace Petty of Milledgeville; seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Suzy, there are someplace in the earlier reports. I'll look for it. Essentially it said your dad, Roy, and my Mom were the ones our grandfather abused all the time. He one give the severe beatings for the least little thing and the other siblings could do worse and get away it. Osmo is the reason my mother was named America as a middle name, he is the one that suggested it. And one time he and his first cousin Stanley Petty lived in Detroit and Opal went there later also. They got in a few fights in Detroit. I remember he worked at a fruit stand in Chattnooga when he first got out of the Navy and we dropped by to see him when he visited Opal and Grandma. I'll look when I find a chance. Or it may be better if send it all to you, on line. It is about 180 pages or so of Word.

My email address is ethunter@bellsouth.net. Email me your address so I can send it to you.
