It is possible that some of Evans Peery's descendants moved to Iowa as other Peery's were already there.
Your Evans Peery is the same one that I am interested in.
My great great great grandmother Nancy H. Peery Witten, was a first cousin to George Peery, Evans Peery's father, and she is buried in the George Peery cemetery in Grundy County, Missouri.I believe that Evans and Elizabeth and Stephen Neill Peery are all buried there as well.
I would have to check my records to be sure about who else is buried there but I know Nancy H. was, and am pretty sure that Evans and Elizabeth are there.
My great great grandfather, Carl Milton Peery was also related to them but since I don't know exactly who his parents were, I can't be sure just how he was related to them. I had hoped to find an Evans Peery family bible and that it might contain something of lead value in my search for Carl Milton's parents.
Also, Gentry and Grundy Counties, Missouri, which adjoin each other, are close to the Iowa border and with other Peery's also already in Iowa, it is logical to assume that some of Evans' descendants may have moved there.
I have a lot of info on this and other lines of Peerys.
