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.

- 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.
