Elijah Floyd Peavey was born about 1825 in Alabama – possibly Butler County, AL. About 1847 he married Elizabeth Harriet ???. They had 3 children in Butler County, then moved to East Texas. Their son, Edward Brice Peavey, was born 17 Feb 1858 in Moscow, Polk Co. TX.
I found a family tree on Ancestry.com that said Elijah died in 1858 in Angelina Co. TX. I have also found records of Peavy/Peavey residents in East Texas in the lumbering business. It is possible Elijah came with other family members, and may have died in an accident.
Harriet remarried twice to a Hall and a Smith. I’m also trying to find her maiden name. The Smith she married was also from Butler Co. AL and was possibly a relative.
If any of this looks familiar, please reply. Has anyone searched Will/Probate records in Angelina County?
