In Response To: Allen/Pettiford/Pulley/Hedgepeth ()
Was your Doc Pettiford born in or about January, 1887? If so, his parents were probably William Pettiford and Martha Peppers of Franklin & Nash Counties, NC. Do you know whether Doc had brothers named Cleveland and William? If Doc's wife Frances died in Nash County on 2 July, 1934, then her parents were John Mills and Sallie Richardson.
William Pettiford (husband of Martha Peppers) and my great-grandfather were first cousins.
