10.  William Frank Harris

NOTES for William Frank Harris:

Frank Harris claimed that Joel Chandler Harris, author of the Uncle Remus tales, was his cousin. For years, he subscribed to the Atlanta Constitution, a newspaper that carried Joel Chandler Harris's editorials. He saved the newspapers in a trunk that was later found in an attic. Unfortunately, mice had gnawed into the trunk and made shreds of the newspapers.

If I could find a definite connection to Joel Chandler Harris, it might help in tracing the family line beyond Frank Harris's father, Joel Marion Harris. Joel Chandler Harris's family name comes from his mother, Mary Harris, whose father was Michael Harris, but I haven't found any information that would determine if Michael Harris was the father of (or a brother, or uncle, or cousin of) Joel Marion Harris.

NOTES for John David Pettit and Sarah Adeline Louise Brannon:

Click here for a large photo of John and Adeline Pettit and family (identities and date of picture unknown).

John Pettit enlisted in the Confederate Army on 4 August 1861, at Silver Creek, GA, and served as a private in Co. G, 22d Inf. He was discharged 26 December 1861. (I don't know the reason.) He was a Baptist Preacher from about 1869, or before, until at least 1909. Our family tradition is that the children of John Pettit claimed they were of French descent.

John Pettit is listed as a 15-year-old in the household of Daniel Pottete (age 38) and Vina (his stepmother, age 27) on the 1850 Census, Cherokee Co, GA (15th Division, Page 514, Dwelling #1568, Family #1580). Other children listed are Levi H., age 17; James, age 11; Elizabeth, age 7; Ervin, age 5; Martha, age 1. All born in South Carolina except the last three. (This census was not listed in the Census Index.)

The data for the wives on the 1860 Census for John Pettit (Milton Co, GA, page 12, PO Alpharetta, Dwelling #5, Family #5) and for James H. Pettit (Dwelling #4, Family #4) were apparently swapped by the census taker. It erroneously lists John Pettit with James's wife Jane, and James H. Pettit with John's wife Adeline.

I cannot find the 1870 census for John and Adeline Pettit. They may have been in Alabama (see 1880 census with child born in Alabama about 1869) or in Georgia.

The 1880 Census (Polk Co, GA, page 365, Sheet 35, Vol. 19, Enum. Dist. #169, Cedartown) lists John D. Pettit, age 44; Adeline, age 36; Enoch, age 11, b. AL; Mary, age 8, b. GA; Laura Bell, age 6, b. GA, Harvey, age 2, b. GA.

The 1900 census (Etowah Co., AL, Walnut Grove, Precinct #14, Sheet #4, Vol. 22, Enum. Dist. #159) states that Sarah A. Pettit was the mother of 12 children, with 8 still living. Listed in the household are John D. Pettit, age 64; Sarah A., age 57; Walter, age 18; Emma, age 16; Herstein (dau.), age 13; Leo (dau.), age 9; Esther Clark (gr-dau.), age 8; Eugenia Clark (gr-dau.), age 6. Walter and Emma were born in GA, and the last two children and both grandchildren listed were born in AL.
