Re: Peacocks So. GA and Florida mid to late 1800s

You are certainly welcome Judy. As with any online genealogy, I am positive I have some data that is very wrong in my base, and as I contact family decendents, I can get good data, and make the necessary corrections.

When I first found my ggreat aunt Mary Chancy, and started trying to find her family, I recieved several outlines for the Peacock family, which some of it was later determined to be wrong. Like in this instance, Henry E's father was John Peacock, and married Elizabeth MNU. Many folks have this same John married to Unity Pierce. This is incorrect. That is another John Peacock, of approximately the same general age.

Another wrong piece if info out on the net is Marys husband James T Peacock. Most files show him being killed at the battle of Antietam, MD. This too is incorrect. James died in a hospital at or near Richmond, (Camp Winder Hospital) the same day his unit was fightning near Antietam...his medical records reveal this.

The lady that supplied me with the straight information, decends from Henry and Nancy as well, and reserched all of this as good as I have ever seen, and I feel so very fortunate to have been referred to her for data, and she was willing to help. She used my James T as her link to the Civil War as he was her ggreat uncle, and that was a requirement for her gaining access to the ladies unit of the Civil War organizations, the UDC (United Daughters of the Confederacy.)

Just keep your eyes peeled out for any reference to some or all of my Peacocks after 1880. I kinda think they went to Florida, maybe somewhere in the northern counties, as Mary had a brother that went into some of those counties somewhere we think, but some also went further south, Hillsboro, Polk and even Manatee is not out of the question. Mary would have been about 50 or 51 years old in 1880, and I kinda doubt she moved too far, unless she moved in with relatives, either Peacock or Chancy...and if the 1890 census was available, she might could be found...she may have died before 1900...but I have found where one Mary L Peacock purchased and homesteaded 160 acres in Holmes County Fl., in clue as to the age of this Mary, and so far I have found nothing further for her. If I could find Samuel, John R or Rebecca Peacock, I probably could find Mary.

Take care, and regards...Robert
(Hope your daughter continues to do well, and will soon be 'jumping thru hoops' again)
