John Peak, Stephen Peak, W. C. Hasha-LA and TX

I am seeking information about my gg-grandfather, John Peak born around 1814 in either Ms or Al.

The 1870 McLennan Co, TX census reports that he was married to Caroline, with children Rosana, Francis, Eliza, Joseph, Levy, and Bailey.

In 1880 his wife is Charlotte, with children Francis, Telitha (Eliza?), Joseph, Levy, Bailey, George (my g-grandfather), Sarah and Nathaniel.

In 1900 Charlotte is widowed and living with sons Nathan and Charlie. The census indicates that the children born prior to 1870 were born in Louisiana, those after were born in Texas.

Living nearby is a Stephen Peak who is 30 years younger than John, but who is still likey to be John's son. Stephen's wife is Sarah and their children reported over several censuses are: Emma, twins Rosana and Charla, Mack, Eric and Cecilia(twins?), Rotan, Jacob and Maria (twins?), Pat, Ephram and Steve.

Stephen's daughter Rosana Joncy Peak grows up to marry a man named W. C. Hasha from Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.

I would love to know more about this family. George W. Peek grows up to marry a woman from Louisiana, and they seem to move back a forth between LA and McLennan Co.,TX, before finally settling in Wood Co., TX. I have not been able to identify the area of LA that they lived in or where George's wife Dillie came from. Family legend has it that she was full blooded Indian from Louisiana. Did she come from around Calcasieu Parish? George had sons named Pardue, Haywood and Norwood. These are all also surnames being researched in Calcasieu Parish.

I would be most greatful to anyone who can help me and would love to correspond with family or other researchers who know something about these Peek/Peak folks.
