It is interesting that you have relatives in Nebraska,so do I.
My great grandfather, Steven Alexander Peery moved from Missouri to Nebraska in 1918 and died there in 1931.
He is buried in the Nelson Neb. city cemetery.
One of his sons, Roy Peery, is buried in the Crete, Neb. cemetery. Roy died in 1956.
Steven seemed to go where other Peerys already were so I believe that when he went to Nebraska, he already knew other Peery relatives who were there.
His father, Carl Milton Peery did the same thing, he moved around alot, but went where other Peerys were, and this I think, appears to be a family migratory trait.They all seem to go where other Peerys already are.
Another one of Steven Peerys' sons, Chauncey Peery, lived in Nebraska for many years and later settled in Calif.
Most of Chauncey's descendants still live in, or are buried in Nebraska.
Two of Chaunceys grandsons, Mike and Carl Peery and their families, live in the Lincoln and Seward areas of Nebraska.
Mike and Carl have a Brother, Steven, who lives in Minnesota, in the same town where Jerry Peery lives. Jerry is the son of Roy Peery who is buried in Crete, Nebraska.
Incidently, there was an Otis Peery, James Otis actually, who lived in Wyoming, and was Married to Reva something and both were from Albany, Missouri and are related to me also.
Some of Otis Peery's relatives also went to Nebraska.
