Hi Garry, I have some infomation for you about your family. Did you know that Robert Hamilton's father was John J. Peppers Jr., born about 1815 and that his father was John J. Peppers Sr., born about 1770. Also, we have started a Peppers DNA project to find missing Peppers links and to trace the family back across the ocean. We currently have 2 different lines of John Pepper,s Sr being tested. Do you know Robert Peppers of Paduch, Ky? His grandfather, Thomas Luther, was James Arthur's brother. If you are interested in the results when we get them please feel free to contact me at my email address. You would not need to participate in the test since we are already testing your line. The only reason for you to take the test would be to validate your line.
