My ancestor was from the Peacock family. She was Anna Sophia Vanlandingham, granddaughter of Sophia Peacock (SP was b 1792 in NC daughter of Uriah and Susan, married Jethro Dean there, and after they had quite a few kids they moved to GA where she died in Wilkinson Co GA in 1869).
In the 1850's Anna Sophia - with her husband Jesse Lord and one child - moved from Wilkinson Co GA to the SE corner of Arknsas (Drew Co).
In later censuses in Drew Co ARK we see the name Peacock appearing, and I am wondering if there were Peacock relatives that moved to ARK at the same time, in the mid-1850s. It would make far more sense than them just Jesse and Anna taking off alone. An alternate possibility would be that once they got to Arkansas the Peacocks followed later.
So has anyone dug out the history yet of when Peacocks moved to Drew Co ARK? Any help will be much appreciated.
