Please email me privately.

I can tell you for certain that the town of Peacock, Texas was founded by the Peacock brothers. John William Peacock, Brack Sr. and James Morgan. None of them are buried there at Aspermont. There is no cemetery at Peacock, but several nearby. Aspermont Cemetery does have Oscar Peacock and his wife, Etha Rash Peacock there, as well as Wilmer Porter Peacock and wife, Mira Hurst are there. There WAS one descendant there named Maybell Peacock Cleveland...but she is now in a rest home, and I don't know where that is. The other Peacock that is or was there (son of Oscar) was Mack Peacock, and I don't know if he is still living or not. None were interested in researching....there just aren't many of the Peacock's left.
The one of Brack's family that was really interested was Gwendolyn Broyles Peacock, who is deceased now. She was the widow of Howard Braxton Peacock, son of Brack Sr. and Mollie Belle Harrison Peacock. She shared information that she had on her family.
I've been researching since 1978 and have never been able to prove Alfred's parents....PEACOCK DNA results show that he is NOT Samuel Peacock's line as Wanda Peacock research suggested. She did the best she could, but could never actually PROVE Alfred's parents. She had to work with census etc.
It is a dead end for now. Lots of internet trees show Alfred's parents, but no one actually did the research on him....they just took information from other trees, asuming it was correct. If you see Samuel listed as Alfred's father, you know they didn't do their own research.
If you do go to Peacock, then be sure to go look at the historical marker there on the tells the story of the three brothers and their settlement of Peacock, Texas. There are no gas stations, grocery or post office at Peacock anymore. Used to be an antique store there but not sure if there is anything there now. Double Mountain is just a mountain near Peacock..there might be a cemeterey named Double Mountain...I don't know. It isn't a town at all. There is very little left at Jayton as far as I know, not sure. Been through there, but don't remember what it is like.
As far as Throckmorton I don't know of any surviving Peacock's living there. Have been there only one time, years ago when William David "Dub" Peacock was living.
If you will email me privately, I will send you a PDF (Adobe) file on what I have for Brack's family.
None of the Peacock family I know is interested in actually or actively researching other than myself.
My line is from John William Peacock brother to Braxton Bragg Peacock Sr.
