Go West Young Pettys!

John Franklin and Adeline Woody Petty.  John is the son of Elijah Petty and Sarah Parker.  Adeline is the daughter of Conrad Raburn and Elizabeth Hunt Woody.  Adeline was born in Fannin Counry, Georgia,  1859 and John was born in the same county in 1856.
They were married 1881 in Fannin County.  They had ten children. 
Here is the only note I have about John:
John received the bulk of his father's estate.

In the book "PROGESSIVE MEN OF WYOMING"  They  moved to Sand Creek, Laromie County, Wyoming in 1887.  Later owning a farm on the Wheatland Flats.

Here is a far fetched thought:  John Petty is the brother Daniel Webster Petty.  Daniel Webster Petty is the father of William Elijah Joseph Petty (my mother's father).   William Elijah Joseph was also born in Fannin County.  William Elijah Joseph Petty moved his family to Gillette, Wyoming for a few years.  I wonder if Wm Elijah Joseph  was aware his uncle John lived in the same state?  And if so, is that why he moved there?
