William Foster, I, too, had families in Upson Co., Georgia and in the surrounding counties.My gg.grandparents were Elizabeth Z. Bagwell and Andrew 'Jack'son Peugh. Their son, John J. Peugh, was my g.grandfather.
My GG.Grandfather, Andrew Jackson Peugh, later married to nee- Martha "Mattie" Willingham.There were several children by Martha. Martha Peugh is shown as widowed in the 1900 census.
Elizabeth Z. Bagwell later married Enoch Buntyn and had children. Her mother nee-Mary Ann Morris, had married about three times due to the deaths of her husbands.Elizabeth Z. her daughter married several times, too.The war was hard on families...as well as the difficulties of the time. Orphans were placed with various relatives, or apprenticed to other families.This has been a difficult family to trace.
The Bagwell, Morris, Hamlet, Peugh, Buntyn, Castleberry/(Kesselberg=old German Spelling, Davis, Stone, and Derrick names are all united in marriages, adoptions, and etc. Some married two and three times.
I have the Peugh-Morris family histories in a book researched by myself and a second cousin's husband and his research done in 2004.There are about 45 pages of research 'untangling' the Peugh-Morris families.I have been researching since I was about 14 years of age...I am now 67.
