.. His Census for 1920 and 1930 show him born in 1902.

He is living with his Mother and her new husband, Charlie , in 1920.Next door to his Uncle Robert In MS....
 In 1930, he resides at same location in MS and is married to Mary.

For what it's worth:

Frank Edwards was a friend of both McClennan and Petway, and he met the pair in his travels. He went North to Chicago with them both (from MS?) in 1941. They connected him up with Melrose, who recorded him for OKeh in May of that year, backed by Washboard Sam. Frank pronounced the name as "Petaway".
