Posting the link to your family tree helps those see what information you already have so you don't get repeat information. It also helps those that don't know to find it:

The Moses Pettus found in farm census, Alabama in 1870, was the son, NOT the father/husband of Ellendon:

The 1870 Census of Henry County, Alabama
Moses Pettis, 60, farmer, born in Georgia
Loucy, 60, born in Georgia
Andrew, 12(1857/1858), born in Georgia
William 9, born in Florida.

The 1860 Census for Terrell Co(You show this in your tree):
Moses Pettis(as transcribed), 54(1805/1806), born in GA
Lucy F, 46(1813/1814), identified as being born in North Carolina
Moses W, 20.
Mark 17
Jackson Walker, 12; Thomas J Walker 10, Mary 3(?)
--Mary's age would place Lucy Walkers previous husbands death (IF HE DIED) about 1855/1856. BUT, the Andrew found in the 1870 Census "could" have been born a Walker in Georgia. So that would place Lucy's husbands death about 1857/1858
--This Thomas Walker born about 1849/1850.

The potential family of Lucy Walker in 1850)
The 1850 Census of Dist 11, Randolph County, Georgia
Jas Walker, 56(1793/1794), born in North Carolina
Lucy, 37(1812/1813), Georgia (IF Lucy in the 1860, shown as NC)
Joe, 13
Jas, 10
Jno (John), 8
Jane, 7,
Jack, 3, (But this person is identified as a Female, an enumeration mistake, as the Jane above is identified as a male).
Thos, 2/12. All children born in Georgia.
--Randolph County borders Terrell County.
--While this Lucy matches close location, age, there is NO PROOF what-so-ever that this is the Lucy that married Moses. I could not find this family in the 1860 Census.
--This Thomas "could" be the Thomas Walker in the 1860 Census.
--This Jack "could" be the Jackson Walker found in the 1860 Census.
------Overall there seems to be enough "evidence" to strongly indicate this was the family of Lucy Walker prior to marriage to Moses.
