Peay Family Genealogy Forum
Zachariah (he spelled it Zackariah) Peay was my great-grandfather. Samuella was his younger sister. Both were children of Colonel Samuel and Eliza Jordan Peay. Zack was born in 1847 and joined the 1st East Tennessee Volunteer Cavalry (Union) in May 1863. He was in action from then until just after the Battle of Nashville, where he was stationed once his colonel's father became governor.
Zack married Ellen Holloway in about 1868 and fathered seven children, four of whom survived to adulthood. Samuel, the oldest, worked on the Kansas & Texas Railroad. Hugh worked in the Nashville Stockyards. Blanche married J. Fulton Lillie and after some years divorced him and became a nurse. There were two children of that marriage. Joseph Baugh, my grandfather, married Jeffie Blanche Greene and had one son who survived to adulthood.
Samuella married a Henry Jones and had a number of children,including one named Minous (honest!). Her grandson is Retired Admiral Carlton Benton Jones, currently living in Denver.
