  Death Notes:

Ga Death Records list Oliver P. Petty as having died on 5 Feb 1943. His age was listed as 72 at the time of his death, which matches Perry's birth date. Perry was living in Fulton County, Georgia in 1930 census. Samantha Petty Hankins' obituary in Jan 1944 noted that she had been the last of her immediate family and that three brothers and a sister had died in the last fifteen months. So, that death record is likely for this, Oliver Perry Petty.
