I do not have this Thomas Peavler in my files.I have 11 Thomas Peavlers but none born in 1936 in Southern IL.
Is it possible that he might be the son or grandson of Harry G. Peavler and Eunice L. Keele ???Harry was born 14 Oct 1887, IL and is buried in Fitzgerrel Cemetery, Spring Garden Twp., Jefferson Co., IL.Harry was the son of Gabriel Nathaniel Elmer Peavler and Mary A. Barr, born 18 Feb 1862 in Jefferson Co., IL and died Oct 1937 in Los Angeles, CA.
Gabriel Nathaniel Elmer Peavler was the son of Gabriel Peavler and Nancy McKinney.This Gabriel was the younger brother of my G-G-Grandfather, Jacob.
Does this help ?If so, I would appreciate hearing from you regarding your connection to the Peavler family.I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
