From "Our Peeples family" compiled by Rachael Peeples Rogers, Atlanta, Georgia, 1953

Morris Bascomb Peeples, (12th child of William Peeples and Peggy Aldred) was called Bascomb, and by his nieces and nephew, "Uncle Bak". Many of the younger ones remember seeing him, when they were children, and older members of this large connection remember some things about him, but no one would state positively that he ever married or had any children. We was born about 1856, and one stated she "thought" he married in Georgia, but later lived in Texas. It is a fact that he did live in Texas. A few years before 1948, he visited in Georgia, returned to Texas, and died shortly after. One said he lived in a town called "West", Texas. It seems he was a humorist, and the fact that he had either a lisp or some impediment of speech, made what he said doubly funny. Everyone who knew him at all remembered him very pleasantly, but, somehow no one now living seems to know anything definite about his marriage, if he married, his children, if he had any, nor where he lived except the one place, called West, Texas.

Tell us about your Bascomb, please.
