Descendants of John Peavy and Unity White

John Peavy and Unity White

Picture of Noah Eli Lawson Peavy (1853-1938) and his daughter Annie.

The family history is the result of many Peavy descendants who have done most of the research over many years. Its aim is to help other Peavy descendants find their ancestors and add to the family tree. Many thanks to Ann Lancaster Sherman, William Peavy, Decia Simms, Marsha Faulk, Charles Osborne and Mike Rogers for all their hard work. According to Marsha McWilliams ( coordinator of the Pavey, Peavey/Peavy Family Cousins website, "More than likely most of the early southern PEAVYs (all dif. sp.) were descendants of Eastern Shore PAVEYs...(we're working on that now.)" Any help would be greatly appreciated.

NOTE: There were 2 John PEAVYs listed in the GA. Militia as being Indian fighters in the late 1790's. Since they were listed in the same years these were probably two different John Peavys. One, possibly married to a Unity WHITE ... the other, actually a John PAVEY

From Ann Sherman (
John Peavy was dead by 1806 when Unity is listed on the tax digest in Greene Co., GA, paying taxes on 28 acres of land bought under the name of her son, David, who was a child at the time. (why? and have found no deed showing when the land was sold.) Unfortunately, neither Unity nor John is shown on the 1805 Land Lottery for GA. Unity did sign up when she was in Jasper Co. We know John was in Wilkes Co. (in the part that was cut off into Warren). However, I have found no deeds or other records that would help us determine when he was still alive in Warren or in Greene. Unity may have gone to Greene after his death--if so, WHY???

From William Peavy (
Unity PEAVY was listed as a taxpayer in Greene County, GA between 1806 and 1812 and she granted Power of Attorney to her son-in-law William LAWRENCE in Greene County, GA. in 1816 because she was moving and needed someone to settle her affairs. On March 5th 1821, she granted Power of Attorney to her son Allen PEAVY to enable him to collect her inheritance from the estate of her father David WHITE who had died in Louisiana in 1809. Her sister Margaret THROWER granted a like Power of Attorney to Allen PEAVY just seven days later on March 12, 1821.
In 1855, Unity filed an affidavit in Meriwether County, GA, stating that Sarah DAVIDSON of Pike County, GA., widow of the Revolutionary Soldier Joseph DAVIDSON, was in fact the sister of Unity's late husband. This Joseph DAVIDSON may have been the same man who in 1783 witnessed the sale of land to Joseph PEVEY in Orange County, NC., and who was involved in land transactions in Wilkes County, GA.
Unity WHITE PEAVY died in Meriwether County, Georgia on January 14, 1856 and the notice of her death was printed in the January 31, 1856 issue of The Southern Christian Advocate, a Methodist publication. Her obituary stated that she had been brought from her birth-place in North Carolina by her parents to Warren County, GA. where she had married John PEAVY. From several sources, we are able to estimate that she was born in 1770 in North Carolina and that she was probably married in 1789 or 1790.

4. Rebecca E. Peavy (b. c Feb 1850)
From Bill Peavy ( 3/6/02 My information about Rebecca E. Peavy strongly suggests she was born in Feb 1850; on the census, she was 9 months old and the census was enumerated in her district in November 1850. I'm also struck by the initial "E" and the previously unsuspected (to me) existence of Elizabeth Aldora Peavy, who by strange coincidence was born 21 Feb 1850 in Meriwether Co which is consistent with the age of Rebecca E and the date of census enumeration in 1850. Now it seems to me that we either have a case of previously undocumented twin girls here, or that Rebecca E and Elizabeth Aldora were one and the same girl. Elizabeth dropped the "Rebecca" and later gave it to one of her daughters; and that the Aldora was simply never recorded on the census. OK, I admit I don't have a lot of evidence for this suspicion but what there is is really persuasive to me.
