This information about Austin Peay / William Peay is incorrect. Your William may have had a brother Austin, but it was not the one for whom Austin Peay State U. was named for. You can find info on that Austin Peay line at, which I compiled. There are/were Austin Peays all over the country and I cannot yet connect all the lines, but it probably goes back to a Peay who lived about 1700 in Virginia. I hope this helps, please feel free to email me at
