Orsin, Thanks so much for the reply. It seems possible there could be a connection. Especially since I have not heard from any other PEACOCK families in DC. I have the line back quite a way, but don't know where some of them were from and am trying to find more details (like you have). I have:
Mary Estelle Â“StellaÂ” PEACOCK1
Birth: 30 Jun 1899 DIST. OF COLUMBIA
Death: 8 Sep 1945 Fresno Co., CA
Burial: 11 Sep 1940 Smith Mtn. Cem., Sultana, Tulare, CA
Burial Memo: With Marvin, block 271
Known As: Stella
Father: Paul Yates PEACOCK (1877-1899)
Mother: Mary Kathryn CARROLL (-1945)
Name: Paul Yates PEACOCK
Death: 11 Nov 1899
Father: Naaman PEACOCK (1843-)
Mother: Margaret Roberta HITAFFER (1854-)
1: Mary Kathryn CARROLL

Death: 8 Sep 1945 Washington, D.C.?5
Notes: LA FEVERE OR PEARSON Connected To Her In Some Way perhaps a second husband that according to my mother-in-law murdered her.
Known As: Kathryn
Have you connected your William with any PEACOCK line? I go back from Paul to Naaman (b. 1843 Fairfax VA) to Thomas J. (1811-1897) to Hezekiah (ca 1775) to Benjamin (1736 to 1818) to Thomas (ca 1710). But like I say, mostly dates, not a lot of details. Although I have a great bit of info on the oldest of these, Thomas. Â“Thomas Peacock ran away from home in Scotland and settled in Conneticut where he married and had three sons. Thomas, Henry Benjamin. While the boys were still young their mother died, then their father died. A Colonel MINOR took the boys into his own family and brought them up. When they were of age he gave them their choice of keeping their own name or assuming his. Benjamin and Henry took the name of their father [PEACOCK] and Thomas took the name MINOR. Henry Benjamin left Conneticut and the families drifted apart.Â” According to Wisconsin Families: Â“Bible Records, Pages for preservation in print of data recorded in Wisconsin Family Bibles, by Mrs. H. C. Blaneling, page 43, Quarterly - June 1940 issue.
Let me know what you think. I am happy to share any info I have.
