Throwback Thursday: Tom and Mary Jo Petty


Throwback Thursday:  My mother's oldest brother Thomas Jefferson "Tom" Petty (1908-1979) and his wife Mary Jo Johns Petty (1913-2000).

Tom was born in Murray County, Georgia, and Mary Jo was born in Gordon County, just down the road.

Tom was a cabinet maker and carpenter.  They lived at various places in and around Dalton, Georgia, and Cleveland, and Chattanooga, Tennessee.  They also lived in Marietta a year or two where we learned they were also gospel singers.

By most the pictures it appears that Tom was something of a ham in front of the camera.

They had no children.
