Hi: On the Peay who came to this country, I
strongly suspect it to Be one John Pead. (the
way its spelled in printed material, the census record, you can make a case for either. They carry many same given names,
George, Eliza, John, William, Nathaniel.
They came into Norforlk co. Va, or rther John did in 1652. Re; Austin - This, as you say
is conjecture, but George Peay & Elizabeth
Parker had a son Robert Peay (in Westmreland
Co Va., Robert evidently was a grown man
by 1720-30. He had a brother named Austin
Peay. TAlso, in this generation, some broke
from Va. and went to SC. Tn's Governor,
Austin Peay (served 1906-1910) I think my
dates are correct. He was from Christian Co.,
Ky. His father came from SC. Austin crossed
st. lne into Montgomery Co., Tn, married. and
in later years was our governor. He had
an aunt Susan Elizabh "betty" who in 1840 was the wife of the then governor, Newton Cannon.
Hope this helps & happy ancestor hunin!
