Well I don't know if this helps you much or not, but this what I have seen so far. The first Pevehouse was actually the German Johann Biebinghaus (not sure if spelling is correct). Anyways, the reason why some went to TX is because during Stephen F. Austin's settling the first 300 colonies, after Santa Anna and the Alamo, a Pevehouse (not sure at this time) married a Hodge. The Hodge's were one of the first families to settle Fort Bend County TX. I live in the area (coincidence!) where they settled. Some Pevehouse's followed the Hodge's (since they are now family) and raised their families. Now the other locations I have no idea... as I am still hunting down the Pevehouse/Peavyhouse that married into my husband's tree. I think he may be a son of Abraham (ca 1740-1760) but have no firm documentation that states that... just so happens the dates kind of match. At least more than any of the other's that were in the area. So not sure if this answers your question, but hope it does shed some light on your query.
