Whew! Reading these postings makes me realize I don't know nuthin'
Is there any room for a Peggy Pendarvis among the children of William Pendarvis, 1820 federal census in Pike County, Mississippi?
I have been looking for my husband's gggrandfather and have tracked down his gggrandfather's brother's death certificate.It says his father was John Martin and his mother Paggie Penda.There aren't any Penda's anywhere, so I'm thinking its Pendarvis.In the census records she's Margret Love, Martha Love and Margaret Martin; always born 1820 but in born in MS, AL and LA, respectively (??).Peggy is a nickname for Margaret; maybe she was hiding.She's never with her paramour/spouse/husband.There seems to be a Margaret Pendarvis associated with John Tullos and his wife Margaret Fletcher born in 1822, but the family tree has her married to a McDonald.Clearly the woman I'm looking for was living with her son James Henry Martin in 1860, 1870 and 1880.
There's no marriage between a John Martin and Margaret/Peggy Pendarvis; no marriage of a Pendarvis with a Love or a Martin with a Love.So, maybe her middle name was Love.She's living in 1860 with a John and Mary Simons and their ten kids; they seem non-existent in 1850, 1870 or 1880.
Any light you can shed on this would be really appreciated.Edna Martin
