Just recently found out that I am part Pepper(s) thanks to the great sleuthing work and records sent to me by Judy Bowman who has several messages posted to this list.I am descended from John Pepper(s) and Ester/Hester Whaley Peppers through their daughter Elizabeth, who married Nathan Fowler sometime in the early 1820s, probably in Jackson, Walton or Gwinnett County. I would appreciate any further information on ancestors of John Pepper(s). Thanks to Judy, I have the Whaley background on John's wife, Esther/Hester Whaley. (Of course we can always use more information.) I also will be happy to share anything I have on Nathan and Elizabeth Pepper(s) Fowler's descendants.
Also, I was going through the 1850 Gwinnett County, GA, census last Friday and came across the Sunsberry Pepper listing and a rather odd one on their neighbors, the "Vicarys." Thought I'd pass it on in case it might help someone else.

Thought these surnames and info might help someone put their Gwinnett Co. Peppers together.
