In 1850 census in Murfeesboro Rutherford, TN It seems that John and Delilah (Thrift ) Petty were running a boarding house. So this census reflects those people living in that residence.

Clemtine and Margaret and their husbands living with John in Rutherford Co. in 1850 along with a few other people seems John and Delilah was running a boarding house

George Washington Petty, Isham Petty, and Ambrose Petty were the sons of John and Delilah Petty (br. Rutherford Co TN) who came to Texas. G. W. was here by October 1835 and fought at the Battle of San Jacinto. His name is carved on the monument to that battle which secured the independence of Texas. If you are in Houston, visit the battle field and find his name. Isham and Ambrose came later.

When G. W. arrived, the John L. Wood family was already living in San Felipe d'Austin. Whether the similar migration patterns from Chatham Co NC to middle TN to the same settlement the Mexico, later the Republic of Texas for the Petty family and the McDaniel-Wood family indicate any family connection/friendship are unknown.

BIOGRAPHY: The Palatinate, a German State, originally a part of the Holy Roman Empire and located in the upper and middle Rhine River area Was Known to be the early home of the Hollatough Family.
German, Like other states of the Empire, was Governed by Powerfull And Cruel princes Whose Greed had trigged a war that was to Leave all of central Europe in ruin.
In desperstion the Palatines turned to the tenets of the two great religious reformers, Martin Luther and John Calvin and responded to William Penn's invitation to the free new land of America where religious freedom was Promised.

BIOGRAPHY: The Passenger list of "The Neptune" revals that it was in the early 1700's when from that ship our forebears were to first put foot on American soil.

BIOGRAPHY: We can only assume that our people did not stay long in Pennsylvania. It is possible that much of the ririch land of that area was already under claim whene the arived and evidence indicates that the moved by ox cart and wagon to Lancaster, York, Northumberland and Berks County: Thence on in to
The Shenandoah Valley
to Sttle on the Yadkin and Pee Dee Rivers in Rowan county, Nortrh Carolina. Descendants of the family are still found there.

BIOGRAPHY: Along with other early Settlers the shared urge to Move ever westward. Probably, it was in the early 1800's that our diirect descendants of the Hollabough's settled in Wayne and Perry Counties of Tennessee, where they were to remain untill the saw tfit to Move to Searcy and other nearby Counties of Arkansaw.

BIOGRAPHY: Statistics revealed that two Hollabough brothers, George A And John at the Arkansaw area about the time Searcy County was organized. in 1868-69 a nephew, John M lived in searcy County, Then Moved on to Pope County.

BIOGRAPHY: The economic problems brought on by the Civil War and by the Reconnstruction era that followed that war brought about a dispersion movment in the Hollabough Family that eventually left its members in many states.

BIOGRAPHY: Remaining in Pope County today, we find desecend ants of John M Hollabough, Who wS born Aug 3 1844
in Perry County,Tennessee, and who died Jun 29 1921. And is buried at Hector, Arkansaw. his dirirect Children were Thoms Green Hollabough, born Nov 1 1866; W.M. born Sep 10 1868;

Pickaway County Ohio History EARLY SETTLERS
As Jackson township was included in the Virginia Military District, many of the early settlers were from the Old Dominion. The Renicks were the first family to become established here. Jonathan Renick, from Hardy County, Virginia, came to the township in 1798 and settled on Darby Creek, having purchased the Dade tract. A few years later he was joined by his father, John Renick, and other members of the family. The Renicks are widely represented in Pickaway County and are among its most prominent citizens.
Shortly after the arrival of Jonathan Renick,. William Marquis located on Darby Creek,
Henry Slyh, Sr., settled permanently in Jackson township in 1802; George Glaze, in 1807: John Baer, about 1809 ; James R. Hulse, in 1811; John Fisher, in 1815 ; and Andrew Whiteside and Jonathan W. Huston, in 1828. Other early pioneers of the township were the following : Robert Martin. Melchior and Peter Staley; James Hemphill, Samuel Hunter, Joseph and Ebenezer Petty, Horace Keyes and the Sudduth and Barnes families.

Deaths in Pickaway County: History
CEMETERIES.

It is thought that the first burials in this township were made in the all burying-ground, on the bank of Darby Creek, as the inscriptions on the tombstones go back as far as 1807. Many Halls are buried here as well as members of neighboring families. In another burying-ground is found the tombstone of John Renick, the pioneer, who died in 1814. There may have been earlier burials, for time has not dealt kindly with the inscriptions, which in many instances have become nearly effaced. The. year 1826 was a sad one to the early settlers living here, for a malignant sickness, known as the "cold plague," removed many loved ones. The Jackson township cemetery, comprising some four acres,

It also appears from this record, that William Johnson was the first Treasurer, Abner Barret first Clerk of this township.
By the record of 1806, it appears that Joseph Petty, Thomas Pearce and William Parkison were elected Trustees, and David Parkison, Clerk for that year. The Trustees allowed William Powel's account for keeping a poor woman and child. Who the poor women and child were, is not known. The following is copied from the township record of 1808.

Said to be of "Urbana." Urbana is generally where the Petty farm is located, directly south of Bellefontaine about 30 miles or so in the next county (Champaign). Zanesfield, where they lived on the Mad River, is a few miles southeast of Bellefontaine.
_________________________________
Jemima was alive at the time of the 1820 US Census. She does not appear in the 1830 US Census, so she died somewhere in between. In both censuses, the family was living in Jefferson Twp, Logan Co., Ohio. See notes for Joseph Petty, there is a discussion of a sickness that took many lives in 1826. Perhaps this is what happened to Jemima. I have found no further references to her.

The 1840 US Census for Solomon shows a male child age 15-20, which also narrows the date of death to between 1825 and 1830.
