It is possible our two lines of Peavys are connected. Two brothers named Joshua and Caleb apparently showed up in eastern NC in the late 1700's apparently from New England area (not sure where, possibly NH). They moved to Marlboro County, SC where Joshua disappeared from local records but Caleb remained and had a son named James who was apparently orphaned at the age of 15 (have the court documents where Caleb's will was probated, and where a guardian was appointed for James in 1818. I don't really know where Joshua went but he apparently moved South. Not sure how to confirm that it is the right Joshua even if I found him. But if you need more info, let me know!
