I don't have much information on the Pegg family, but I keep encountering them as I research my Halls.I am most interested in Henry Pegg (1801-1882) who married Nancy Hall (1810-1894) in Guernsey Co., Ohio, July 4, 1833.They lived near Martin and Margaret Hall in Newport Township, Washington County, Ohio, ca. 1860 to 1890, and are buried near them in the Newport Cemetery.Martin and Margaret were originally from Jefferson Co., Ohio.
The following information on the family of Henry and Nancy Hall Pegg is taken from HISTORY OF MARIETTA AND WASHINGTON COUNTY, OHIO AND REPRESENTATIVE CITIZENS, by Martin R. Andrews, 1902, page 1334.
A. J. Pegg, who stands well toward the front as a prominent producer in the oil business, has been identified with that line of trade during the greater part of his life, but is also engaged in farming to some extent.
He is a son of Henry and Nancy (Hall) Pegg, and was born June 7, 1851, in Newport township, Washington County, Ohio.His father was born in 1801, and lived to a good, old age.He was prominent in his township as a farmer, and superintended the cultivation of 200 acres of land.He married Nancy Hall, and they reared a family consisting of eleven children, namely:Sarah E., deceased; Margaret; J. M.; Eliza; Henry L; John; Thomas; Carrie; Ebenezer; A. J.; and C. W. . . .
A. J. Pegg was united in matrimony with Frances S. Lowther, a daughter of Cambyses and Sarah Lowther.Mrs. Pegg was born August 5, 1850, and was a faithful wife.She and her husband had six children, namely:Cyrus, whose birth took place March 4, 1876; Ella B., born August 4, 1877; Martha, who was born April 27, 1879; Jennie, born January 15, 1881; Wylie M., born July 4, 1887; and Frances H., born August 6, 1896. . . .
