Peatross, Essex, County, Virginia, in 1715, probated 1716, as being

"His name first appears in the records in August, 1801, when we find
him serving on a jury in Monroe County.

In the 1815 Giles County tax list he is enumerated as being the owner
of 2 horses and 3 cows. Clearly he was engaged in farming, although
at the time of his second marriage in 1859, he gave "Carpenter" as his
occupation. He was the ancestor of all the Mercer, Summers, and
Braxton County Pettreys, also spelled Petry, Petrey, and Pettry. Some
of his later descendants also moved into Raleigh, Boone, Kanawha, and
Fayette Counties. Although he had 21 children, all by his first wife,
the names of only 17 are known. The others probably died in infancy."

James and Mary Lacy Petry are buried in the old Petry Cemetery,
located on Secondary Rt. 18 and north on Lick Creek Road, near the
Bill White home, in mercer County. It is hoped that at some time a
more suitable monument can be placed on their graves.

parents and younger brothers and sisters and settled down on Indian
Ridge between Tom's Run and Lick Creek, now known as the old Wyrick
Place. At that time it was located in Monroe County. It became Giles
County in 1806, Mercer County in 1837, and finally in 1871 was
organized as the Pipestem District of Summers County. His name first

John PETRY was born about 1792 in Orange Co., WV. He died between 1872 and 1880 in Raleigh, West Virginia. Born about 1790, Rockingham or Montgomery County, Virginia, d.
between 1872 and 1880, probably Raleigh Co. He married Mary May, b.
abt. 1801, d. 5 May 1872, Raleigh Co., daughter of William and
Elizabeth May of Kanawha Co. John Petry lived at Shumate's Branch in
Raleigh County and was a farmer. He apparently moved there from the
Pipestem area in the 1820's along with his father. In the National
Archives is a record of his being a member of a company of Riflemen of
Virginia Militia commanded by Captain Andrew Johnston from the 86th
Regiment in the County of Giles, War of 1812. This company was
mustered into service February 17, 1815, at Giles County Court House,
place of rendezvous, and , after having marched about 75 miles or
thereabouts on the way to Norfolk and the same in returning, was
discharged March 2, 1815, at Giles County Court House, having been 14
days in service. The War had officially ended with the signing of the
Treaty of Ghent on Dec. 14, 1814. Apparently this company was
disbanded upon hearing the news of the ending of the War. For his
services John Petry was paid the princely sum of three dollars and
ninety-three cents. Parents: Martin PETRY and Elizabeth Ann RAINES.

Martin PETRY was born on 19 Jan 1757 in Orange Co., Virginia.33 He died after 1838 in Packsville, West Virginia. He was buried in the Old Petry Cemetery, Indian Ridge Road, Mercer, West Viginia. The following is and excerpt from Kimberly S. Day, Peoria, Arizona:

Martin Petry married Elizabeth Ann Raines of Rockingham County,
Virginia. About 1792, they settled on Lick Creek, at now, Brown's
Chapel, in the Pipestem area of Summers and Mercer Counties. They
lived there for 8 to 10 years. About 1802, Martin built a one room log
cabin on Little Marsh, at, what is now known as, Packsville, WV in now
Raleigh County, near the over-flowing well (artesian well) and lived
here part-time while, also, maintaining a home at Lick Creek. A few
years after Martin had established his home site, Lemuel C. and
Elizabeth (Farley) Jarrell, from the Monroe County area, settled 1 1/4
miles from the mouth of Little Marsh Fork, near the present Marfork
over-flowing well. In about 1807, some of Martin's eight children
resettled in the Marsh Fork and Clear Fork Districts of Raleigh
County. Martin and Betsy lived here until his death some time after
1835, but before the 1840 census. They are buried on a small knoll
behind where his cabin once stood.

Martin and Betsys children are James, Sarah, Sally, John, St. Clair,
Samuel, Jacob and Elizabeth.

Served in the Revolutionary War and was at the taking of Cornwallis.

Martin PETRY was born about 1811 in Island Creek, Giles, Virginia. He died about 1892. " Martin and Sarah apear to have moved to the Clear Fork of Coal
river at an early age. On file in the National Archives are the
pension payments as surviving dependents of their son, French Petry,
who died in the civil war. Martin's last paper filed was in 1892 and
from the description given in that affidavit of his physical
frailties, it seems unlikely that he would have lived much longer. He
was a farmer."
