Before IL, James and Phoebe and family were in Cumberland Co. KY.My ancestor was their oldest daughter Nancy m. Martin Miller and stayed in KY.Nancy's grand daughter, Margaret - my g grandmother, married and went to TX where I was born .I moved to IL in 1974 and James and Phoebe are my only IL ancestors.
I have some Peery info and a picture of Phoebe's grave stone (Peery Cemetery, Perry Co. IL).
Would like to hear about your IL Peerys and see if they connect.
