Birth Date:  1601

Death Date:  1655?

Comments:  Lawrence Peelle sailed from England on the Margaret & John in late December 1620 and arrived in Virginia in late April or early May 1621.  Lawrence's trip to Virginia occurred while the Mayflower wintered in the harbor of Plymouth, Massachusetts, it having arrived there on 26 December 1620.  The Mayflower departed Plymouth on its return voyage on 5 April 1621, just before the Margaret & John arrived in Virginia.  I am offering $1000 reward for information connecting Lawrence into his English family.

I will give you the infomation I have and hopefully we will be able to tie in to the family. I will not put all the information on but enough to trace it. Mary "Polly" Peel was born 1788 in Green County Tennessee. Her father was: Thomas William Peel, Sr (born 2 Feb 1744/5 in County Down Ulster North Ireland) and Joannah Hardin(?) (born 1755 in Tennessee). His parents were: John Earliest Peel (born betw. 1710-1720 in County Down Ulster Nofrthern Ireland) and married Sarah ?

Comments:  My ancestor Christina Peel married David Boane Davis on 23 Mar 1835 in Surry Co., NC. I am trying to connect her to the many Peels that lived in Surry County from the early 1800s on. One possibility is Jesse Peel, b. 1804 in Surry Co. Both Christina and Jesse had sons named Riley, suggesting a possible sibling/close family relationship. If anyone has information about her, I would appreciate hearing from you. Thank you.

Comments:  Reuben appears on the 1800 and 1810 Martin Co, NC censuses. He buys and sells property in Martin County during that timespan, selling his last piece of property in 1819. His wife, Sarah (Unknown) signs with Reuben. Family tradition tells that Reuben, Sarah, and family leave for TN around 1819(youngest child is stated to have been born in TN on later censuses). No records have been found for Reuben after that Martin County land transaction -- in NC, TN or AL. His widow buys land in Franklin Co, AL in 1826. Who were Reuben's parents? Why does he not appear on any known records until he is in his 40's? Who were his 2 older sons and daughter that may have stayed behind in Martin Co when the family migrated? I descend from Reuben and Sarah's 7th child, James Turner Peal, born 1814 Martin Co, NC.

Ancestor:  Francis Boyd Peele

Birth Date:  16 May 1888

Death Date:  24 June 1943

Comments:  Trying to locate more information on Francis Boyd Peele. He married Lila Gray Branch on Dec 18, 1912. Lila was the sister of my great grandmother. Lila and Boyd had one daughter, Frances Gray Peele who was born in 1916, four weeks before Lila's death. Francis Boyd Peele appears to be the brother of William Walter Peele who was a bishop in the Methodist Church. Francis Boyd Peele also appears to have been a minister. I have part of the obituary of Lila but half the newpaper obit is missing and I don't know the name of the paper. I have no idea where they lived when Lila died. According to my grandmother, Frances Gray lived as a young child with Lila's sister, Callie Branch Hilburn (Mrs. Ted Hilburn) in Fayetteville, NC until after Frances Gray's father remarried (and had a son??). Any help would be appreciated in locating the parents of Francis Boyd and William Walter Peele. I am not 100% sure that William Walter is the correct brother. Lila's obit listed Francis Boyd as being the brother of Rev. W W Peele, and William Walter is the only one I have located so far.

I'm sure it is quite distant but it is so nice to connect to "family". My husband, Richard was born in 1937, and is a retired Electrical Engineer (TVA).
