Mary W. Peay widow of Dr. Austin J. Peay, York SC
Posted by: Phyllis Arnold (ID *****7883) Date: June 23, 2004 at 09:14:41
  of 348

Dr. Austin J. Peay died in 1863 in York District. His widow, Mary W.(Westbrook) Peay was named the adm. On the 1870 census for York, Mary W. (36) is listed with children: George A.,(13); John N? (12); and America (8).

I found John, Mary's son, on the 1880 Soundex in Chester.
John Peay (20), Mary Peay, wife of John (28), and their daughter May (1)

Does anyone know what became of the widow of Dr. Austin J. Peay? Did she remarry? What became of her sons John and George A.? Did she at anytime live with her adult sons?
I know what became of the daughter, America. In Dr. Peay's estate file under credits paid in Sept 1866 paid Robt Davidson for coffin for daughter. Also, in the credits for August 1863, a tombstone for Dr. Austin J. Peay was purchased. Does anyone know where this stone is located?
