Pelege would have been my Great Great Grandfather.
I'll try to get more information for you, but:

Pelege and his wife Arrabell's son was Uriah Harris, my Great Grandfather. (There were other children, but I'll have to see if I can help you further there when I can get to my records.)

Uriah married my Great Grandmother, Sarah Louise Saunderson. One of their children was my Grandfather, Warren Spencer Harris, Sr.

Grandfather Warren married Lyda Emma Swindell. They had 6 children, Warren Spencer Harris, Jr., Aubrey Eugene Harris, Nixie Mae Harris(who died at the age of 3 from pneumonia), Margaret Elizabeth Harris Cockes (my mother), Gilvry Elmo Harris, and Bill Glenn Harris.

Hyde Country Has 2 very good record books that are available. You can get them, I believe through the Hyde Country Geneological Society. One of them is the better: In Memory Of. That gives all the Hyde County cemeteries, folks buried there, and their relationships.

Hope this helps! I'll look forward to hearing back from you! How exactly are you related to Peleg?
