The 1860 Missouri Dent County Census lists a Peter Taff ( age 70) and several Petty's. Listed in the household is William Petty, Nancy Petty, and Jefferson & Elizabeth Petty.
The Petty members are the children of William Taylor Petty who died sometime around 1850.
My question is this:
Did Peter marry William T Petty's widow?
Or did Peter take in the Petty children for safe keeping?
Any information is greatly appreciated.
