In Reply to: Re: George Nicholas Peay/Ella Keats by Leslie D. Hood of 348

Peachy Walker Speed Peay b.4 may 1813, was the daughter of prominent cartographer John Speed and Lucy Gilmer Fry Speed. Subsequent mistress/landowner of "Farmington" at her fathers death,c. 1846, until her removal c.1865.[it is now an historic homes museum].She lived there together with her husband Austin Lightfoot Peay, b. 1803 d.1849.Peachy lived until18 jan 1891. their children were George Nicholas Peay B.1833,John Speed Peay,b.1836,d.15 apr. 1889,Elizabeth Clendinin Peay, b. 31 dec. 1842.It seems likely that George Nicholas Peay who was married to Ella Keats Peay was killed in the civil war.Ella keats Peay is listed in the Louisville Red Book{a social register, printed in the same year of her death 1888} as Mrs. Ella Keats Peay, on 5th St., along with the Misses Ella, Alice, and Minnie Peay. Many of the wives of soldiers killed in the Civil War did not register their names as a widow would, ie. Mrs. George N. Peay,in the far off hope of his return, it appears that Ella did the same.
