In Reply to: Capt. J. W. Peacock, Texas Independence hero by Colbert Coldwell of 2349

Me again...I realize that I responded to some posts in 2006, but do not remember corresponding personally with either of you....

I do show that J. W. Peacock and Fannie White Peacock had one son, Julius, born approximately 1828 in Tennessee. Julius N. Peacock removed to Perry County with his father before J. W. Peacock went off to Texas to fight in the Battle of Bexar. Julius N. White became a physican and later married Sarah Frances Walker on September 18, 1853 in Marshall County, Tennessee.

The 1860 census records has Julius and Fannie as residing in Giles County, and as a slaveowner of one 15-year old female. They have no children.

Dr. Julius N. White served in the Civil War in the Medical Core. His wife Fannie later filed a confenderate pension on him (1/21/1907).

Dr. J. N. White and wife Fannie are residing in Giles County; again with no children. However, in their household is a black child, 10 years old, by the name of Monroe Dabney.

I show that Anna White, born on August 10, 1826 and married on December 8, 1847 to Richard A. Williams, is the daughter of Stokley White and his first wife. However, I found the following bits of information and am confused. If this Anna is the daughter of Peacock, it would make sense that her name is Anna Peacock. Perhaps her uncle adopted her?? (confused here)....

Minutes of the Chancery Court Records Book B 1845-1861 page 418
Ann Peacock Williams, granddaughter of Stephen White, daughter of Stokely White and wife of the husband of Richard Williams filed suit against her father and uncle (Stokely and Burrell G.) administrators of Stephen's will.
Stephen's will stipulated that Ann was to receive $400 plus $100 at the age of 21 which was Aug 10, 1847. She received the $400 but Stokely and Burrell had not given her the $100. Court ordered payment of $120.80. $100 plus interest.
Early Middle Tennessee Marriages, Vol. 1, indicates that Ann Peacock married Richard Williams in Marshall County on 12-8-1847. There was some speculation that Ann was previously married to a Peacock, so this information verifies the fact. However, there appears to be no marriage record to indicate that Ann married a Peacock.

As Stokley White married again, before 1837 to Jane Maxwell, and had three children by her, including another daughter named Anna it would make sense that the above Anna is indeed the daughter of J. W. Peacock. However, that would make the above court document incorrect or misworded.

Any thoughts???
