    W. J. Petty and wife came to Iowa in a covered wagon and purchased land in Montgomery County in 1864. Their children were W. F. Petty, J. H. Petty, S. J. Petty, and Jesse Petty.

Petty and Mrs. Ollie Petty are the parents of Lloyd L., Ross E., Dean A., Milo C., Vernon E., Mae (Mrs. Daryl Showalter), Max L., Doris (Mrs. Bill Weston) all of the Elliott vicinity, except Ross who lives at Chico, California. Vernon passed away when he was three years old. My grandfather, W. J. Petty, lived to be 92. He was a joy to know, and lived in the present. He had many friends. I am proud to be his granddaughter.
