You might be talking about a branch of the Peek Funeral Home that was/is located in (Anderson County). My neighbor who owns a Seneca (Oconee County) Funeral Home is not aware of this company. However, depending on the time period, these two guys could have been operating out of a wagon or sharing a building.

Doing research in the GoldenCorner (Anderson-Oconee-Pickens) counties of South Carolina might be time consuming for you, because of how these counties were formed. Based on your time-period, you might need to research all (3) counties.

- Prior to 1783, no lawful White settlements were above present southern Anderson County border.

- In 1789 Pendleton County was formed as part of the 96 Judicial District from Indian Country.

- In 1795 Pendleton County was placed in the Washington Judicial District.

- In 1799, Pendleton County was named Pendleton District by the State legislature and Washington Judicial District was discontinued.

- In 1826/27, Pendleton District was divided into the Anderson & Pickens Districts.

- In 1868 the state legislature decided to change all districts to counties.

- Oconee County (est. 1868) represents part of old Pickens County & added Indian Land.

- Pickens County (est. 1825) represents part of old Pickens District.

- Anderson County (est. 1826) represents the old Anderson District.

- In 1986, Pickens County annexed Oconee County land that included Clemson University and land extending SE to Anderson County.
