Dear Hope, So sorry to hear about the flood, but growing up in Texas I know how sudden they can be. If I have any Peay information you have lost, I'll be glad to share with you. Thanks for the update on Martha Keziah Peay's name.
Have you ever made any progress with the earlier Keziah Ford Peay, the sister of William Gardner Ford and Nathaniel Ford?I keep running into a very sturdy brick wall where their parents are concerned.
One other question:I have in my notes that a daughter of William Gardner Ford, who married John Middleton, had a son reared by Austin F. Peay.However, I cannot find any record of the boy?Have you found anything in your papers about him?
