     This is the house still standing at Stonewall, Tenn.- Where Henderson Petty and his wife Nancy lived during the War between the States.  Here several of his children, in cluding my father Balaam Petty, were born.  Here his mother Lydia Maynard Petty died.  A fourteen year old daugher Mary C. also died here.  And here it was that the two young Confederates Steve and Tommy hid from the Yankees- and near here the Yankees took Tommy a prisoner and sent him to a Yankee prison to tend smallpox patients. 1863-1865


The following additional pictures of this house made in 2003 by John Waggoner Jr. have been added here but were not in the original book.
