Not necessarily a problem Zynnya!

If you go to the end of the page, You will see Peter H. Pegg died 4.6.1849 (speared to death at Gin Gin)
Peter Pegg (jnr) died 21.10.1918

Peter Pegg (jnr) was my great grandfather.
The question now is what was the relationship between Peter H. and Peter?
Both children at the same time, although Peter would have been 5 or 6 years old when Peter H. was killed. Were they siblings? Seems unlikely. Were they cousins?
I have an old newspaper report of the spearing of the two boys filed away somewhere, and I recently found the story of the event in my mother's handwriting. In neither case do I recall the names of the boys being mentioned.
