Ton of Pettys back to 1640

I have been researching my grandmother's line. Her name is Rose Marie (Petty) Spears. Her father was a Fred Calvin Petty. His father was a Orin(sp?) M. Petty. My grandmother talks of the Petty's being from Illinois, but she was born in Indianapolis Indiana. I had correspondence with a John Petty that helped me connect Orin to a Abraham Petty (it lists Abraham's son as Orion Petty). I have that Abraham was born February 18, 1832 in Chatham Co. North Carolina. Abraham was married to a Sarah Pritchett in Hendricks County Indiana. There is never a mention of the "Illinois Petty's" that my grandmother thought she remembered. So, I am still not sure if these are my "Petty's" or not. She also thought there was "Indian Heritage" in the Petty background. If you could shed light on any of this or share whatever information that you have that connects with me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for your time.
