Notes for Ron Peo:
Ron and Stephanie Peo sent a very nice letter via email to Alice Winterrod on May 18, 2005.They write that there are many things with regard to the Peo family history that have remained a mystery to me as well.The website that you provided answered a lot of my questions.We obviously share the same grandfather.I had no idea that he had children beyond my father and his two siblings, William and Gertrude.My grandfather Herman and his wife, my grandmother, Elizabeth, had passed away before I was born (12/27/1958), so I have no memories associated with them.My mother, of Cherokee Indian descent, Naomi, born 04/13/1928, (maiden name) Bowman, Peo, (remarried to Maurice, died 08/19/2004) Robinson will be able to answer many of the questions that you have.Her contact info: 9059 Heilscher St., Wheatfield, Indiana, 46392.I am the youngest of Frank Peo, Sr.'s eight children.From oldest to youngest, Frank, Jr., Larry (deceased), (Herman) Stewart, Charles, Wayne (deceased), Ralph, Marilyn, and Ron.I never met my Uncle Bill, and he preceded my father in death.I don't know if he had a family or not.I knew my Aunt "Gertie" from childhood.She had lived in Benton Harbor, Michigan for many years.After my parents divorce I had lost all contact with her.She died a few years ago in Tennessee.She had a daughter, Dolores, and I have no idea of her whereabouts.
I was the first in my family to attend college, and I was a student of music education and vocal (opera) performance.I had a career for over twenty years as a professional opera singer, and I lived in Germany for 14 years.I had always assumed that Peo was a German name.My German friends always said that they had never heard the name as being German.There are still some Peo's living in Germany, but I never had any luck contacting them.I had always suspected that the name could be French in origin.I've included the web address below from my singing days.My wife, Stephanie (maiden name) Creech Peo, born 08/26/1967, teaches elementary school music.We have a 1 year old son, Stephen Maurice Peo, born 04/19/2004, who is my second career!I've retired, and I have left the music world behind.I work now for the Home Depot as a Millwork specialist.It keeps me close to home, and I'm able to enjoy watching my son grow as an "older" father.I will try to pass on more information to you as I'm able to piece things together.I will contact my mother about this, and I'll forward her a copy of your letter.Unfortunately she doesn't have web access.She thinks that she's too old for computers!
Thank you again for your letter.
With warm regards,
Ron, Stephanie & Stephen
