I'm working from autosomal hits to confirm all of my putative ancestors by analyzing the genetic distance. This works to 6-8 generations max at the present time. Deeper looks require Y(111) for paternal or mitochondrial for maternal.
Thomas Pettus is and professor of organic chemistry at the University of California at Santa Barbara. He grew up in Keysville in Charlotte County Virginia, which is home to the Richardson family plantation known as Maple Roads. His cousin William Walker Pettus IV wrote a 2 volume book on Thomas Petyous (Pettus) and his Pettus Descendants, tracing Pettus roots to Thomas Pettus (1598 in Norwich England). His Aunt Katherine (Early) Holden wrote a book on the Early's of Virginia.
DNA Circles: according to ancestry.com, the group I manage of my kids, my sisters, my 1st cousins, my 2nd cousins and my 3rd cousins. I'm in the following 29 DNA circles (Thomas White Cecil, 4th GGF, 51 members), (Nancy Grayson, 4th GGM, 31 members), (Ira Howard, 3rd GGF, 29 members), (Sebastian Wygal, 4th GGF, 20 members), (Sarah Strickland, 4th GGM, 40 members), (Peter Howard, 4th GGF, 39 members), (Rhoda Stevens, 3rd GGM, 23 members), (John R Early, 3rd GGF, 23 members), (Eleanor Collinsworth, 4th GGM, 20 members), (William O'Bryan, 4th GGF, 26 members), (George William Tuck, 4th GGF, 26 members), (John Davis Richardson, 4th GGF, 18 members), (Rebeckah Davis, 4th GGM, 16 members), (Mary Yancy, 4th GGM, 42 members), (Catherine Plickenstalver, 4th GGM, 66 members), (John Lester, 4th GGF, 75 members), (Rhoda Holland, 4th GGM, 25 members), (Joseph Lane Howard, 2nd GGF, 8 members), (Ann Amanda Smith, 2nd GGM, 8 members), (William Vermilyea, 4th GGF, 18 members), (Permenila Lester, 3rd GGM, 8 members), (Willmuth Rudd 4th GGM, 15 members), (James Gordon Wygal, 3rd GGF, 7 members)

I adopted him a bit ago and started in and swapped to another as I went in circles.
However I don't see Mary Walton as the wife of the one the comment was on .. but as his mother and those dates are realistic. That one is married to a Mary unknown that is about 10 years older... whigh although odd would be possible. if there is something else please let me know and send screen shots.
I also welcome any evifence to help straighten out that line as I think we have about 15 duplicate Richard Yancey each with slightly different versions

I'm using autosomal for six generations. I manage the DNA of my myself, 3 sisters, 2 sons, 4 cousins. If I see DNA hits at up to six generations of members of my family groups with individuals on Ancestry, FTDNA, my heritage, or wikitree, with limited surname overalap, seems to me that it's pretty DNA confirmed. I also understand how mitochodria and Y dna work.
The confirmed with DNA indicator has a specific meaning on WikiTree and although you may feel that your ancestor is confirmed with DNA, the relationship indicator should not be checked unless you provide proper DNA citations (following the guidance in the pages I gave you links to) the profile is subject to having the confirmed with DNA indicator cleared.

Also, you have marked both parents as confirmed with DNA, but Y-DNA only can confirm fathers. You have given no DNA confirmation information to confirm the mother.
PM me if you have more questions.
