Surnames: Peavy, Mathews
from Bioform for WWI Gold Star Award presented to Eugene Taylor Brooks, 1890-1918 (my grandmother's first cousin)
Question #6. Remarks on Ancestry. Give here any and all facts possible in reference to your parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc., not included in the foregoing, as where they lived, offices held, Revolutionary or other war service; what country the family came from to America, where first settled, county and State; always giving full names if possible and never referring to an ancestor simply as such without giving the name. It is desirable to include every fact possible, and to that end the full and exact record from old Bibles should be appended on separate sheets of this size, thus preserving the facts from loss:

Answer: HIs great Grandfather Charlie Peavy served in the Indian War also Revolutionary War. Grandfather Felix Brooks served in Indian war. His uncle Frank Brooks lost his life in the Confederate war and uncle George Brooks also like to have lost his life in the same war. Also had three great-uncles in Confederate war. He has lost more relatives in war than in any other way. Then lost his own life on battle field of France.

info submitted by Miss Eva Cobb, Jan. 18th. 1922, Georgiana, Alabama
Miss Eva Cobb has provided me with the information that Charlie Peavy was my ggg-gf. She is mistaken if she meant that he was the one who served in the Revolutionary War. Since he was not old enough, it was probably his father who served in the Revolution.
Here are some of my notes on Charles Peavy:

from my cousin Tim Slauson
The earliest date we find of Felix Brooks in Alabama is May 23, 1836, and he is enlisting at Ft. Deposit, Lowndes County as an Indian Fighter. We also know for a fact, Felix and Rachel were married in Butler County by Jessie Reaves after [Felix] fighting Indians.

Preston Brooks and Charles Peavy purchased land in Cahaba on the same day. In the Felix Brooks pension record in 1892, Asa M. Peavy states by affidavit he witnessed the marriage of Felix and Rachel. Asa would have been there because Rachel was his sister and they were the children of Charles and Rebecca Matthews Peavy.
Was my ancestor Abraham Peavy (May 03,1765-Aug.15,1837)
Was Abraham (born 1765) the father of Charles (born 1788) and Isaac (born 1798)?

Were Charles and Isaac Peavy Abraham's sons and not named in pension records dated 1854 because they were deceased before 1854? The Butler Co. Courthouse burned in 1853 and the children of Abraham were named in an 1854 record as "children now living")

Charles Peavy was on the 1850 but not the 1860 census, so I assume he died in the 1850s, possibly before 1854.

Does anyone have more (not already posted on this message board) on Charles Peavy or the other Peavys from Hancock Co. GA to Butler Co. Alabama?

Is Hiram (b. 1811) beside Charles in 1850 the son of Charles or the son of Abraham?

I checked today and found that someone has posted the parents of Rebecca Mathews Peavy as Jeremiah Mathews and Mary Brinkley and also posted that Rebecca's sister Nancy married Ward TAYLOR. It makes sense, so I'll be looking for proof for sure!

Charles Peavy shows is on the 1830 Conecuh Co. Census. I'm trying to identify his children, at least five sons and three daughters. I need to separate them from those of Daniel Peavy (who I believe is on the 1830 Walton Co. Fla. census???), Isaac Peavy, and Abraham Peavy.

Surnames: Peavy, Peevy, Pavey, Hearne
There is a very close Y-DNA match between myself and a direct paternal line descendant of Charles Peevy (circa 1788 - circa 1852). I also match with a male line descendant of Elie Peavy (1789-1859) son of Abraham Peavy, son of Dial Pavey, son of Joseph "Victualler" Pavey who was one of the first Georgia settlers along with James Edward Oglethorpe. My Y-DNA is Irish Type III associated with O'Brien of Thomond, apparently from King Brian Boru's brother Echtigern from whom the surname derives. At least one paternal line descendant of William Hearne, a merchant in Maryland Colony known for trading blankets with siblings in Maryland and Delaware, also of this type. My theory is that the surname Pavey, Peavy, etc. derives from the Irish ethnic Pavee group, probably from around County Kilkenny from whence my ancestors came to America.
