I located a copy of the 1880 Census Record for Jonathan PEACOCK and his family. He was the founder of the Peacock Brewery.
The census record listed his age as 59, married to Eliza (HAMMOND) PEACOCK, age 48. He was shown as the owner/master brewer. Eliza was shown as Keeping House.
At the time, the following children were also listed: Edwin H. PEACOCK (22), James PEACOCK (19), Charles PEACOCK (14), Frances PEACOCK (10), Olive PEACOCK (9). James and Charles were listed as workers in the Brewery, and the other children were enrolled in school.
The census shows Jonathan and Eliza were both born in England, but all the children were born in Illinois. Have not been able to locate the family on either the 1870 or the 1900 census.
Has anybody out there run across this family ???
