Funny how this genealogy stuff keeps people bumping into each other through all the various lines!
Cynthia (Cinthia) Peacock's father was my ggggrandfather. His name was Arnold Peacock, born 1786 in Barnwell District, S.C. Cynthia's mom was also named Cynthia, (Spelled colloquially as "Sinthy" in the 1850 Pike County AL census.) Don't have exact dates of death, but Arnold re-married in 1862, so...We don't know anything prior to Arnold - believe he is connected to the Barnwell Peacock clan, but no proof yet - some of the family is doing DNA testing now to try to match up with known descendants.
Don't really know when Zachariah or Cynthia died. I saw somewhere that he was a private in either the 15th or 16th Alabama Infantry regiment during the Civil War. Zachariah was Cynthia's second husband - her first, Eli Godwin, apparently died during the Civil War. The 1870 Pike census shows her with an 8 year old male surnamed Godwin. She's also living next door to an Elias Godwin - possibly her first father-in-law. You would think with all the Bussey's around Pike County that a link could be found for Zachariah.
Didn't know about the gravesite of Emma Bussey Oliver. Thanks for that info. Will keep you posted if I run across anything else. Gary
