Thank you, Ray. The Peacock deed abstract has answered a question about the Holmeses for me. Benjamin Homes (Holmes) and Frederick Homes (Holmes) were witnesses to John Stancil III's 1795 will. I have long wondered if they had any relationship to John III, other than perhaps being friends and neighbors.

From the deed abstract it appears that Benjamin was married to a Peacock sister of Godfrey Stancil's wife Prilscilla. Thus there was indeed a family link to Godfrey's father John III.

It is interesting, too, that in the 1790 census Frederick Holmes, who witnessed the Peacock deed as well as John III's will, is listed next to Randal (Randolph) Moore, husband of John III's daughter Elizabeth. In the 1800 census Frederick is listed next to John Stancil (Jr./IV). In the 1810 census, Benjamin Holmes is listed next to Jacob Peacock and not far from John and Godfrey Stancil.
