Who were the parents of the Elizabeth L. Peay Austin who married Newton Cannon Austin of Nashville, TN in Jan 1843 ?
On the 1860 census of Davidson Co, TN, Nashville Dist 6 page 149 the family of N. C. Austin 41 farmer and owner of $1,800 Real Estate, $2,400 pp. included a single girl age 17, named Carolyn Peay b TN abt 1843.Is she the sister of Elizabeth?
TheN. C. Austin was born 1820 in Rockingham, NC.I see that there were some Peay families living there.Do you have any information about them?
I am just as interested in the Peay as the Austin families as I have Austin research going on for the NC, and Fairfield Co, SC Austins and Lotts.I keep thinking that there may have been an Austin connection to the Peay family before the famous Austin Peays were born.Is there anything to that?
