Jonnie Peeler Tin Type Photo
This is from a post I received off forum. I believe that there is a possibility that this is Johnnie Peeler son of Jesse Wiseman Peeler b ca 1852, d Jan 1877. I do not have a birth date for Jonnie but his brothers and a sister was born ca 1880 making him the right age for a tin type photo to be made of him. The 1880 census for Jesse is the only one that may show Jonnie but it only lists initales and Jesse died in 1877. His mother may have been Margaret Erwin although the 1880 census list a Mary as Jesse's wife.
I keep a watch on ebay for old family Bibles, photos, etc. in the hope of alerting family members and keeping the items from being lost to their families. On genealogy forums I saw that everyone receiving this email has some level of interest in the Peeler family of Tippah Co. MS and wanted to send a heads up on this old tintype in case someone might recognize this person:
