Angeline Tribble Wasn't Angeline Petty

Well, that didn't take long.

Just three days ago in Searching for John R. Petty's Parents - Part 4, I outlined a few "To Do" items for moving forward in determining if John R. Petty was the son of John Petty from Bradley County, Tennessee. Determining Angeline Tribble's maiden name was on the list. It wasn't too big a stretch to wonder if the Angeline Tribble who was caring for one of John R.'s children in 1880 in Forsyth County, Georgia was the Angeline Petty from Bradley County who could be his sister.

My plan was to check for a marriage record for James and Angeline Tribble. Nolichucky Roots suggested that I check the 1860 census in Georgia for Angelines. A quick check of the 1860 census in Forsyth County located a 4 year old Angeline Phillips, daughter of William Phillips. (Angeline Tribble was 24 in 1880.) FamilySearch has a Forsyth County marriage record indexed showing J. W. Tribble (James' middle initial was W. in census records) and A. B. Phillips, daughter of William Phillips, were married on 1 Feb 1870. James W. and Angeline Tribble were listed with his mother in the 1870 census in Forsyth County. Angeline was listed as 14 years old. 

So that's settled. Angeline Tribble's maiden name was Phillips, not Petty.
