States: Mississippi: Attala
I know a little about the Sam Peeler you are fererring to. I grew up next door to his sister-in law Maude. Sam and his brother Ernest Peeler used to run a mill here. They both died before I moved to Kosciusko in 1970. There is a bed and breakfast in Sam Peeler's old home now. I still live 2 houses from where Ernest and his wife Maude raised their son Harry Peeler. There are still direct descendents of this family here in town.
Your name looks familiar also. Do you live in Attala County?
