Benjamin Hill Peed was born 1 January 1859 in Pleasant Hill, Talbot Co, GA (US 1860 Census).He is 1860, 1900, 1910, and 1920 Census records, some of which give different birth years.1900 Census lists his age at “39,” meaning he was born two years later in 1861.1920 Census gives his age as “68,” putting his birth in 1852, seven years earlier than 1859.Benjamin Hill was the son of Henry L.

Did not know Ben's brother married. Here is my data: Henry T. Peed (1847-1922) Ben Peed’s brother born in 1847, was twelve years older than Ben.Henry Peed never married ; lived near Ben’s family according to grandson, Paul Harris who personally knew him.Henry Peed’s nickname was “Bear.”
