GA Tabitha RICHARDS B: 27 September 1791 in Green Co, GA D: aft 1839 Rockdale Co, GA See Puckett Line "Solving the Puckett Puzzle" This is a query that I posted 5 years ago on the, internet searching for information on our PUCKETT ancestors. Other PUCKETT cousins and I had researche for years to find the parents of John H. PUCKETT but keep running into a brick wall. A few months ago I was working on this and studying the children of John H. PUCKETT. I wondered why John had given the name BUTLER as a middle name to several of his children. I remembered the post above and Frances Fannie BUTLER. I decided to research her family line and it wasnít long until I realized our great, great, great, Grandfather John H. PUCKETT had left us his family history in his childrenís names. I think John knew that some day his descendents would be looking for him and find these clues with his children that would lead to the answers to who our ancestors were. I was able to without question find our PUCKETT family line thought John H. Puckett and his parents David Puckett and Frances Butler. I believe these PUCKETTs came from Ireland with Francesís Butler family. For a long time I tried to connect John H. PUCKETT to the immigrant John PUCKETT, from England who came to America in 1637 and died 1677, his wife was Anne JEFFERY. I could never make anything stick to this John PUCKETT. However to make thing more confusing this John PUCKETT from England and Anne JEFFERY are our ancestor grandparents through our HIGHTOWER line. I wonít get into that now. To show you how this genealogy, (Family Research) puzzle works. I have matched up John H. PUCKETTís children in bold. I have put the children with the ancestor they are named for: Children of: John H. and Tabitha RICHARDS PUCKETT 01 Winny PUCKETT B: 7 Feb 1811 in Greene, GA Married: Montgomery WALLACE was born in 1806 in Greene, Ga.
