Looking for a James Peacock born in Mississippi state
He was the father of Lucy Peacock-who ended up living with our
Peacock's in Illinois. Lucy was born in 1837 her father's name was on her death certificate, no mother listed. Was she
a child of a slave woman? Was she adopted? She married to
William Proctor in Illinois and lived with him till he passed
@1869. She lived beyond her 80th birthday leaving the earth in 1917 in McCleansboro, Illinois. McCleansboro is where William and Lucy lived their lives. They had no children.
They work/owned a resturant with hotel called the St. James.
Even after William died - Lucy kept that place open till she had to stop for health reasons? Does anyone know who the James Peacock who was Lucy's father?

Does anyone from Hamilton County Illinois know anything which might help me?
