BIG NEWS! Now that I have thoroughly revised and updated my “PEYTONs Along the Aquia” book, I am posting all of my comments and corrections to it at a dedicated site: PEYTONs Along the Aquia – Second Edition. Please visit.
The “Second Edition” of “PEYTON’s Along the Aquia Genealogy” is now available as of May 2009. It contains all the the corrections to the 2004 Edition that I have cited here, plus much more additonal information resulting from the research I have done since the First Edition was published in 2004. The genealogy book is available in both hardcover and paperback – PEYTONs Along the Aquia – Second Edition.
This following document is for owners of the Peyton genealogy book that I published in early 2004: “PEYTONs Along the Aquia” by Edna Barney, (CS71.P5195 2004b). Following are the “Corrections and Additions” that I have since found in my book. This may be downloaded as a PDF and printed as three pages, which can be added to the front of the book. The free PDF download is available here: http://www.lulu.com/content/2921698 – or to see the PDF document directly go here: Peyton Book Corrections, July 2008.
**UPDATE: PEYTONs Along the Aquia “Second Edition” 2009 has all of the corrections and much new material.
Page 19 Gerrard PEYTON
On page 19 of “PEYTONs Along the Aquia”, Gerrard PEYTON never married. The Miss HARDWICH mentioned in his will was his half sister.
Page 21 TYPO
On page 21 of “PEYTONs Along the Aquia”, in the paragraph that begins “Ellen may have been ..,” the phrase “her uncle” should be written as “his uncle.” ~~Edna Barney
Page 40 Sarah Hale
I am tending to believe that the Sarah HALE on page 40 of “PEYTONs Along the Aquia” was married to a different Valentine PEYTON. Because her father and husband had connections to land in Fauquier County, I now believe her husband was probably the Valentine PEYTON (#107) of Loudoun County on page 71. That will eliminate the death date for Sarah HALE, as it was tied to the will of Valentine PEYTON (#50). The name of the wife of Valentine PEYTON on page 40, is unknown, however she may be related to those mentioned by him on that page.
Page 51, John WHEELER
I no longer attribute John WHEELER as a second husband of Diana. He seems married to a different “Diana.”
Page 79 Yelverton Peyton
Regarding #54 Yelverton PEYTON (1735-ante1783) on page 79 of “PEYTONs Along the Aquia”: Although Yelverton PEYTON is a proven DAR Patriot (#A090000) of the American Revolution, for his service as a member of the Committee of Safety for Stafford County, Virginia, there is no evidence that he was ever a soldier in that war. It was another Yelverton PEYTON who was a soldier in Virginia’s Continental Line (see page 138).
Through additional analysis of the quite substantial Revolutionary War public service claims presented by Yelverton PEYTON of Peyton’s Ordinary, I have determined that he died between 1781 and 1783.
Page 92 — George PEYTON
George PEYTON is possibly the father of James PEYTON, born circa 1785 of Culpeper County, Virginia, whose mother was Lucy. If that is the case, George PEYTON would have been dead before 1801. Other than that, I have no documentation for a wife nor any children for this person.
Page 99 — Thomas & Ephraim PEYTON
On page 99 of “PEYTONs Along the Aquia” Melinda PEYTON did not marry Ephraim or Thomas PEYTON, sons of Henry PEYTON, therefore Sally PEYTON is a daughter of neither of them. ~~Edna Barney
Page 102 — Wife of Evan PEYTON
Continuing my travails with the PEYTONs of Falmouth, on page 102 of “PEYTONs Along the Aquia,” I had accepted research from family members of Evan PEYTON that his wife was Anne CARTER. However, my own recent research has failed to find any documentation of this. For now, as far as I am concerned, the wife of Evan PEYTON is unknown. Whoever she was, the wife of Evan PEYTON was probably born about 1742, not 1738.
Page 103 — Charles PEYTON
His birthdate is 8 June 1761 (not 1751).
Page 114 — Sarah P. HARRISON
I now believe that the “Sarah P. HARRISON,” on page 114 of “PEYTONs Along the Aquia”, is a fictional personage. There is NO documentation that Sarah P. HARRISON of Prince William County, wife of Valentine PEYTON, ever existed. Court records exist that document the wife of Valentine PEYTON as Sarah WEST, daughter of Hugh WEST.
Pages 116, 117 — Nancy PEYTON and Valentine HARRISON
In “PEYTONs Along the Aquia”, Ann PEYTON, daughter of Craven, did not marry Valentine HARRISON. The Nancy PEYTON who married Captain Valentine HARRISON is on page 66. The marriage of Valentine HARRISON and Nancy PEYTON is documented in “DAR Patriot Index” – Centennial Edition. In addition, the 1785 Deed, Prince William County, Virginia, documents their marriage to have taken place between 1774 and 1785. They were first cousins.
Page 117 — Francis PEYTON (1764-1836)
Regarding the family of Lieutenant Francis PEYTON on page 117 of “PEYTONs Along the Aquia”, it seems the source that I used (#434-#441, page 216) contained a number of inaccuracies. I will update those that I have found so far. There is a Bible record that documents that on 20 October 1789, Francis PEYTON married Sarah FOUSHEE: “Francis PEYTON and Sarah FOUSHEE were married at Alexandria the 20th October 1789.” Sarah (Foushee) PEYTON left a will in Alexandria County, Virginia dated 12 November 1848 (Will Book 5). Francis PEYTON died at Alexandria County, District of Columbia (now Virginia). I find no documentation that Francis PEYTON married before 1786, to Sarah WEST (1769-1849), as given by source #435, nor do I know who this Sarah WEST was.
Their child #207 on page 216, is recorded in the PEYTON bible as “Thomas Jefferson,” NOT “Thomas West” with a birth-date of 30 September 1797. I have no documentation of the “Thomas West PEYTON (a1782-1819) who served during the War of 1812. The correct son of Francis and Sarah (Foushee) PEYTON is Thomas Jefferson PEYTON, who married Sophia Matilda DUNDAS, according to DAR Patriot Index, Ancestor #A089983.
Pages 142, 143 — Charles Peyton of Falmouth
As cited above (page 41), he was born 8 June 1761 (not 1751) in Virginia. I am making more corrections to the family of #170 Charles PEYTON, on pages 142, 143 of “PEYTONs Along the Aquia,” I find no documentation for the use of the name “Carter,” nor any connection with the Carter family for these PEYTONs. The wife of Charles PEYTON is documented as “Elizabeth (maiden name unknown),” which comes from source #555, along with her birth and death dates. Their marriage date should be changed to “about 1786,” documented by source #564 and the 1850 Census.
Page 143 — Ann PEYTON
I made a diversion into the parents of PEYTON cousin John T. ROBERTSON, and I got them wrong. Person #171, Ann PEYTON, does not exist and I know nothing about the parents of person #264, John T. ROBERTSON. I can only verify that he was a cousin of the children of person #170, Charles PEYTON.
Page 144 — Peytons of Falmouth, Virginia
In “PEYTONs Along the Aquia,” I have recently discovered an error in the Revolutionary War Pension file of Charles PEYTON. Therefore, the “heirs at law of Jas. Peyton” (children on page 144) were actually “the heirs at law” (children) of his brother, #170 Charles PEYTON, on page 142. James PEYTON, according to the 1820 Census of Stafford County, Virginia at Falmouth, seems to have children, however, at present, I am not certain of their names.
Page 165 Margaret Moore
TYPO: In “PEYTONs Along the Aquia,” Margaret MOORE, the wife of Craven PEYTON, died on 23 April 1873 (not 1973).
Page 168 Nancy Peyton Limbrick
In “PEYTONs Along the Aquia,” I have recently determined that #267 Nancy PEYTON is the daughter of Charles PEYTON, not of James PEYTON. She is a niece of James PEYTON. I had interpreted her ancestry using an affidavit in the Revolutionary War Pension of Charles PEYTON. Today, I made a new search of the pensions at the National Archives and I found a letter that I had missed where Nancy P. LIMBRICK described herself as the daughter of Charles PEYTON.
Page 204, Source 30b
The source “30b” is a misprint. It should read: “Parish Record, Church of England, Saint Dunstan, Stepney, London, England (Extracted by Family History Center, Salt Lake City, Utah).“
