That part about being one's own grandpa kind of hits home.In my Helms line (Lavina Cumbie's granddaughter, Callie V. Campbell, married Alto Helms - my grandparents), three Helms brothers settled in the Anson County area of NC in the 1740's - I have recently tracked my lines back to them, and I descend from all three brothers.Explaining that sometimes gets kind of interesting.
Anyway, I had the Daniel Cumbie/Mary Cleveland marriage in Pike County, but I did not have the date of death confirmed, so thanks for that.
I assume that you have the Peacock line.I found it interesting that on the 1870 census, Simon's parents, Jonathan and Sarah Tyson Peacock lived on one side of him and Lavina's father Daniel Cumbie and wife Amy Jackson Cumbie lived on the other.I have found Daniel Cumbie mentioned in several books.He apparently was well thought of in the county.I also found mentioned in one the histories of Dale County that he was wounded during the repulse of one of the raids by the Union sympathizeers out of Florida.
I have little info on Simon's descendants except for the Campbells on down.I got sidetracked by a request from my mother.She told me that her mother used to always be telling her how much she looked like Granny Jerkins - so she asked me to find out who Granny Jerkins was - turned out to be Jackson Campbell's mother.Anyway, I have spen most of the last year tracking down Jerkins.
I followed Simon Jr. a bit, as he moved to NW Florida, but not too much for the others.I will be glad to share anything that I have that you are interested in. I do have a couple of pictures of Alice Peacock.
I have a lot of Cumbie data - some from Bill Cumbie and some from one of my Butler 2nd cousins who turned out to also be a Cumbie cousin.I have verified Daniel and several of his brothers, but cannot vouch for the data before that.
I went to Pond Town Cemetery, too.Did you see that Simon Peter Peacock is also buried there?So are my Jerkins ggg grandparents. I have a lot of kin there.
I have done some very preliminary work on Mary Cleveland, but no heavy digging, yet.One Cumbie researcher had her father's name as James. There was a James Cleveland living in Pike Co at the right time, but I am not convinced yet.There was also a Wiley (Willie in some records)Cleveland there, and he shows up in the records earlier than James.I also found Wiley's name on an index of wills, but have not yet ordered the microfilms.I will though.
I would love to see anything that you have on thiis family that you would care to share. I am very interested in any kind of info that helps put flesh onto the bones provided by the statistics.
