Surnames: PEAVY, BROOKS
I'm looking for info on all Peevys/Peavys in the area of Butler Co. Alabama by 1830s. Particular names of interest are Abraham, Charles, Isaac, Daniel, Hiram, Asa/Asa M., and Wm. J. Peavy. My gg-gm was Rachel PEAVY born 1811 in GA, died 1898 in Butler Co., AL. How do the above Peavys relate to Rachel? Rachel married Felix BROOKS. c. early/ mid-1830s. Their {known} children were Francis, Eliza Jane, Nancy Turkwane, Sarah Angeline, George Lafayette, and Marion Taylor Brooks. Rachel Brooks had land patents in T7N R13E, while the Peavys were mostly in T7N R14E. Family tradition says there's Native American blood from either Rachel Peavy or her husband Felix Brooks.

What other info do you have on your Rachel Peavy in Texas? She seems to be a Rachel Unknown who married a Peavy. My Rachel was Rachel Peavy who married a Brooks. Who is DB Peavy? What are the children's names? What year was this Rachel born? Thanks.

My Eliza Peavy was born 1800 GA married James W Williams born 1790 NC. I don't have proof but think he was connected to Williams in Warren GA and later was in Butler AL. They named one of their kids Littleton another was named Lafayette and there were others. They moved to Sabine TX in 1834.

Cheryll; I've corresponded with you, but I don't think it was in reference to this family. My line is from Abraham & Lydia Seale Pevy/Peavy, through their son Michael, b ca 1800 in GA. Abraham was born in Orange county, NC. Have you found any add'l info since this message was posted on how the people named are related to each other? I haven't located the parents or siblings of Abraham & would very much like any clues to help pin them down. I know that Abraham & Lydia came from GA to Butler county ca 1818-1820, but I'm not sure which GA county they left. Any leads would be appreciated. Thanks. Janell at jjg6808@earthlink.net

Lois; Do you have any indication that your Eliza Peavy Williams was ever in Butler co, AL? I'm searching for add'l facts about my ggg grandfather Abraham Pevy/Peavy & wife Lydia Seale who came from GA, perhaps Warren co, to Butler co ca 1818-1820. I've not found his parents or siblings, & would very much like to do so. His son Michael, b ca 1800 in GA, had land in Butler co, then in the part of Coosa co that became Elmore co in 1866. Maybe your Eliza & my Michael were cousins? Ages are same, & migration pattern may fit also. Thanks for any info. Janell at jjg6808@earthlink.net

There was a James W Williams there but there are so many James Williams. Eliza Peavy Williams named her son Littleton and one was William Henry. I noticed a a Michael Peavy son of Littleton Dickson Peavy and Ann Mims born in Houston Co GA. I don't have any facts just some clues. William Henry Williams son of Eliza and James Williams married Mary A Magee. The Magees have Mims in their line. They have connections to Simpson and Rankin MS and Washington Parish LA. I don't think Eliza naming a child Littleton is a coincidence.
