Guilford PEAVY & Dicey MOORE Double Heads Baptist Church

Dear (PEAVY & ROBBINS) Cousin Andy:

It appears that we last corresponded in 2001. It was good to talk with you again.

Your ancestor James Jasper PEVY was first married to Sarah GROSS (licensed 11 Jan 1879 in Effingham County, wed 16 Jan 1879 by Rev. James A. TOOLE). Sarah GROSS PEVY gave birth to their daughter Sarah PEVY in November of the same year and then died of a cold that same month. By the time of the taking of the census in June of 1880, James Jasper had remarried and the new couple were raising his infant daughter, then approximately six months old..

Effingham County, Georgia Census of 1880 (Mortality Schedule):
Family 115 Sarah PEVEE W F 19 M Georgia Georgia Georgia Keeping House, died November, disease Cold

Effingham County, Georgia Census of 1880 (10th District, page 16/335D lines 18-20, Dwelling 107 Family 115, 7 Jun 1880, none of the three can read or write):
Jasper PEVEE W M 24 M Farmer Georgia Georgia Georgia
Louisa PEVEE W F 22 Wife M Keeping House Georgia Georgia Georgia
Sarah PEVEE W F 6m born November Daugh. S Georgia Georgia Georgia

The next family enumerated that day in June of 1880 was that of James Jasper PEVEE's uncle, John M. PEVEE and his wife Mary C. THOMPSON GROSS PEVEE. By her first marriage, Mary was the mother of the late Sarah GROSS PEVY.

Effingham County, Georgia Census of 1880 (10th District, page 335D lines 18-20, Dwelling 1087 Family 116, 7 Jun 1880):
John PEVEE W M 44 M Laborer cannot read or write Georgia Georgia Georgia

Clara PEVEE W F 13 Daugh. S At Home attended school within the year Georgia Georgia Georgia
America HARRIS W F 6 Niece S At Home Georgia Georgia Georgia
Jordan PHILLIPS W M 21 Nephew S Laborer Georgia Georgia Georgia

In 1870, John M. PEVEY had been farming in Screven County, raising two children and two GROSS step-children; by 1900, John M. PEVEY & his wife were farming in Bryan County.

You may of course use the three images - I took the photographs of the two stones at Double Heads Baptist Church earlier this year while surveying the cemetery there - I am the great great great grandson of Guilford PEAVY & Dicy MOORE. For your credits, please note that the third image, the photograph of Guilford PEAVY, is courtesy of his great granddaughter, Mrs. Gladys JOYNER DICKEY.

May God Bless You and Your Family,

Bob ><>
