I have so much information about this family, it's hard to know where to begin! I'll post some here--as I have in response to another query on this page--but will have to mail you more because the information is too vast.

George Franklin Peavler was the son of William Peavler and ASENATH Beals, and besides the spelling of her name (and we've never seen "Lucy" added to the name on our branch of the family)--the my information regarding George and Asenath matches what you have.

William Peavler was the son of Michael Peavler and
Sarah Bull.
Michael Peavler was the son of James Lewis Peavler and
Catherine ______.
James Lewis Peavler was the son of Lewis Peaver
(Lewis Peavler was born 1756-Va.)


I am actually related to--Asenath Beals
She was the daughter of my great-great grandparents--
Daniel Beals
born: 25 May 1799- Bluestone MM, Grayson County, Virginia
died: 12 April 1870 - North Salem Twp., Linn County, Mo.
married: (1) Oct. 1827 - Morgan County, Indiana
Dinah Hadley (Divorced)
(3 daughters)
(2) 8 April 1838 - Hendricks Co., Indiana
Elizabeth Bray
10 chidren -- including triplets

Daniel and both wives were all from Quaker families. The tragic story of the divorce from Dinah Hadley took place after she became an alcoholic and resorted to distressing public behaviors Daniel found intolerable. (All of this is documented in the divorce papers.) Daniel later was a Justice of the Peace in Linn Co., Missouri--and performed many of the Peavler marriages in that county.

I have a great deal of information about the ancestors of Daniel Beals and Elizabeth Bray. One ancestor of his laid out the city of Philadelphia, another is recognized as a qualifying ancestor by the Daughters of the American Revolution in spite of his refusal to bear arms (prohibited by the Quaker faith) because he rendered so great a service to the wounded and dying on both sides of the battlefield. On one occasion this man, a friend of Tecumseh, was captured by the British and charged as a spy. With the rope around his neck, he was given the opportunity to say a few last words and "he preached so great a sermon," the British released him and donated to his mission. I have the court records for another Quaker ancestor who was cast into the Old Bailey prison in London, where he suffered greatly for months--and lost all of his earthly possessions--before being released to immigrate to America with Penn's earliest settlers. This truly one of my most interesting lines--and you share it.

Daniel Beals was a twin--the son of a twin--and I am descended from one of his triplets--Elizabeth Beals (who married John Tanner).

Please let me know what you already have--and what is new information, and I will share what I have with you.

I would like to see what you have about the six children born to David Michael Peavler and Estella Vise. (I have exact birth dates and the names of their spouses, but would like to compare information for accuracy.)
