Throw Back  Thursday.  The Pettys at the home near Cohutta, Murray County, Ga., they called the Red Hills, c 1937. 

Left to Right. 
First Row:  Osmo Petty (1915-1978), Opal Petty (1913-1992) , Thelma Cox Petty (1908-1994) (wife of Wallace), Wallace Petty (1910-2007), and Sarah Petty (1927-1999) (will become wife of Bill McLemore).
Second Row:  Cecil Grant (1901-1958), Georgette Petty Grant 1906-1966), Walt Ridley (1888-1954) (Grandma's brother), Janie Petty Hunter (1918-1996) (Mama and wife of Ed Hunter), Viola Ridley Petty (1885-1968) (Grandma), Mary Jo Johns Petty (1913-2000) (wife of Tom) and Tom Petty (1908-1979).

Behind Walt:  Probably Roy Petty (1921-2000).  But where is Leonard Petty (1924-2001)?  If that is Leonard, where is Roy?  Maybe the missing one is taking the picture.
