In Reply to: Christopher Peavler; Peebler, Pebler, Bibler and variations by Neil Bibler of 286

I believe the Christon/Christopher Pebler could have been the progenitor of the East Tennessee PEAVLER famlily. He was born about 1756/1761. The approximate year of birth based on his appearance on 1777 militia list of Dunmore County, Virginia.

He was possibly the son of Lewis/Ludwig Peebler [c1735-1798] See: 1782 Shenandoah Co Va Deed Book D: 51: Lewis Peebler and Barbara his wife to Charles/Christian Peebler; cons. 5 shillings, 127 acres part of larger tract [509 acres] granted to Lewis Peebler by Deed from the Proprietor Office (Warrant 1766-1768).

Christian's last appearance on the Shenandoah County tax lists was in 1795. This is the same year a Christley/Christopher Beeler/Peopler purchased land in Sullivan County, Tennessee.

1795        Christopher Beaverly (?Bealer?) - Sullivan Co. Tenn. Deed from Benj. Beachboard to Christopher Beaverly, 100 acres Beaver Creek dated 24 Dec 1795, Deed Book 3:156. Source: Mrs. John Vineyard, comp. First Land Owners of Sullivan County, Tennessee (np: by the compiler, 1974). [Note: There are no Beverly entries in this book. There is no entry for a Christopher Beeler/Beaverly/Beevler on the 1812 tax list for Sullivan. There are numerous entries for the surname Bealor-Beeler-Beiler, most had land on Beaver and Sink Creeks and were Mrs. Vinyard's ancestors. Jacob Bealor removed from Frederick County, Va, to the frontier settlement of North Carolina, now Tennessee, in the month of April 1770, and settled on the Holston River. Pension application in Lyman Draper MSS. (Wisconsin Historical Society, Madison), 2DD439-443. John Bealor entered land on Beaver Creek, a branch of the Holston, in Fincastle County, Va, 5 Feb 1774, Summers, Annals, 653. This from a Washington County petition that also lists Geo. Bealor, Joseph Bealor and Wollery Bealor. Source: "Two Petitions to Virginia from the North of Holston Men," The East Tennessee Historical Society's Publications.]

1798        Christley Bebler/Beevler - Sullivan Co. Tenn. Deed to John Hickman, 40 acres, Beaver Creek 3 Feb 1798 (DB 3:239). Source: Mrs. John Vineyard, comp. First Land Owners of Sullivan County, Tennessee (np: by the compiler, 1974). [Vinyard notes: "Although given as Bebler in the Index to Deeds, the name is Beevler in the body of the deed. This may be another member of the Bealor (Beeler) group."]

The name variations seem endless: Peebler, Pidler, Piplar, Pepler, Pebler, Pibler, Pevler, Bebler, Beevler, Beeler, Beaverley, Peopler, Publer, Pobler, Peebles.
