Would be interested in comparing notes.My PEDEN family was in Lick Creek, Davis Co, Iowa.I have a James Edward PEDEN b. 1918 who was a cousin in my line, son of Thomas J. McConnell PEDEN and Ruby Ellen MOHLER.
My PEDEN line is not descended from John PEDEN and Mary McDILL, but from Samuel PEDEN and Lydia POTTER.Line of descent is:
Samuel PEDEN - Lydia POTTER Samuel PEDEN - Mary Elliott Samuel PEDEN - Mary LEWIS Joseph R. PEDEN - Mary Jane MORGAN James Morgan PEDEN - Sarah Rebecca McCONNELL Thomas J. McConnell PEDEN - Ruby Ellen MOHLER James Edward PEDEN
I share this line through the 3 Samuel's.Joseph R. PEDEN's younger brother, James PEDEN (m. Eliza EVERETT) is my 2g-grandfather.
