I am working on my family tree and know that my ggg-grandfater, Benjamin Peevy came from Kirkland, Penobscot, ME. His wifes name was Hannah (unk) Peevy. They had three children while there, John R., William H. and a daughter, unsure of her name at this time. Benjamin was born about 1800, Hannah about 1804, John 1834 and William 1835. They moved to Wisconsin between 1850 and 1860 and they are buried here in Plainfield cemetery, Waushara county WI.I was wondering if there are any of the Peevy family still in the area and would like to know Benjamin's exact birth,who his parents were, Hannah's maiden name and her birth and parents. If any one has any information on the Peevy family of the line I have indicated please let me know. I would appreciate it very, very much.
I have known this information since about 1977 and have not been able to get any further. I have been on Ancestry.com and had little success and besides that stuff cost too much and I am on a very limited budget.
I know other geneologists know my frustration and I hope one of you will be able to help me out. I will check back here regularly for some (hopefully) much needed help. If there are other family members there I would love to get to know them.
Our family history, handed down from grandparents and uncles is that Benjamin invented the Peevy cant hook for the logging industry. If anyone knows about this I would like to know for sure. Thanks a million to all.
