I have Lafayette Peavler on 1900 census b,April,1863 in Illinois with wife Gusta and with *Girtie Peavler,b.August,1889; 2nd cousin. I believe that this Girtie Is Gertrude Peavler,d/o Almeda Peavler.
also on same page is James Baker,b.March,1842 age 58;and wife Almeda,b.Nov.1873. This is Almeda Peavler, d/o William F. Peavler,b.1823 in Kentucky. Almeda was 16 years old when Gertrude was born and I believe that she gave this child up for adoption to the cousin,Lafayette Peavler.
