James Pettit 36 M   Overseer   Mo
Living with R. K. LOVE family.  Checking James's parents, Lee & Easter PETTIT, in Clark Co., AR, the children are not living with them as the letter below indicates.  I can't find the children anywhere.

4.  1860 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find, though my search was not exhaustive.

LETTERS WRITTEN BY NANCY WAFER MILLER, 
WIFE OF WILLIAM HILL MILLER
Union Parish, La. June 30th, 1849
My dear and long lost sister,
Tell Wesley that I am glad that he thought enough of me to write to me...  Mrs. Pettet departed this life the 13 May.  Petet took the children off to Ark to his parents immediately....
Your own faithful sister
Nancy W. Miller
Other files say that the children survived because James mentions them in his will of 1855, but I can't find them in the 1850 or 1860 censuses.
