I moved to Knoxville 4 years ago from Tishomingo County, MS. I am descended from William Peden who married Mary Archer.William was the son of John and Peggy McDill Peden.
Wm and Mary's son,Wm Daniel Paden, married Catherine McCalla in SC. They left SC with his mother and his brothers' families in 1833. They lived in Fayette Co.,TN for a few years where Mary Archer Peden died. Daniel and his brothers went to Tishomingo Co., MS and established Bethany Presbyterian Church. Sallie Frierson Paden's father was one of the first pastors at Bethany. I have info on Wm Drayton and Sallie Frierson Paden sent to me by their descendant, Mary Lam. Her wonderful pictures of them have been interesting to share at the SC reunion.
