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.

Bible record names Amey's parents as David & Mary, but the dates just don't seem right to be David & Mary (Munford) Walker.

Last nigth (late) I was working on my husband's GEDCOM list and to be honest I do not remember what I did. I was on the suggestions list also. Did I mess anything up? Please forgive me if I did. My husband is direcetly related to John Frances Richardson, his 7th GGF. I'm related to him also, but I'm only a distant cousin. One of my grandffathers is Thomas Maple Carter. I wonder if there is any connection to your Maple Roads Plantation? I also have Richardsons in my tree from Virginia. Well anyway i promise not to make any more changes without checking with you first.
Thanks for your patience! Jenny

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
