The Estate of James M. Peek, Macon Co., NC

I have recently had the privilege of sorting through the loose estate records for Macon County, as held by the North Carolina State Archives in Raleigh, for an indexing project sponsored by the North Carolina Genealogical Society. Along the way, I’ve found several interesting items on my own family that I hope to share here over the coming months with other area researchers.

One of my more recent finds was located in the file folder for James M. Peek. According to Elizabeth Peek Crutchfield in the article “David Peek”, James was the son of David Peek and Mary Henderson.1 They had the following children, including James:

  1. Eda Peek, born about 1880 [sic] in Laurens Co., SC, married John Jackson Ammons
  2. Phoebe Peek, born about 1804 in Laurens County, married James Holland
  3. William M. Peek, born 12 January 1809 in Laurens County, married Polly Avaline Mull
  4. James Peek, born before 1820 in Laurens County, “[...] with wife unknown. He migrated to Alabama.”
  5. Ruth Peek, born in 1815 in Laurens County, married Milton Moss
  6. Judy Elizabeth Peek, born in 1819 in Laurens County, married Milton McCoy
  7. Jane Caroline Peek, born 10 February 1820 in Macon Co., NC, married Andrew Madison Bryson
  8. Mary “Polly” Peek, born in 1821 in Macon County, married Martin McCoy
  9. Louisa, born in 1822 in Macon County, never married
  10. David Lee Peek, born in 1828, married Jane Moss
