"Our PEAVY family apparently moved into Warren or Wilkes County, Georgia during the late 1780's and gradually moved west. The line as we know it began with John PEAVY and Unity WHITE and the clan spread out from Meriwether County, Georgia beginning in about 1850 and reaching into
Alabama, Louisiana and Texas. Various members of the clan are known to have lived in Warren, Greene, Jasper, Putnam, Meriwether, Coweta, Pike, Carroll and Troup counties in Georgia; in Randolph county Alabama; in Vernon Parish in Louisiana; in Cass, Marion and Coryell counties in Texas. After 1870, the spread broadens considerably.
A few of the descendants of this line have recently banded together to construct a web-page listing a descendant tree with connections to other families.
The site is located at:http://www.angelfire.com/la/ancestors/Peavy.html
and includes links to some antique photos.
