Looking for information on Johannah PEACHER/PITCHER of Woodford Co. KYb. 1806 She may have married a cousin. She had at least two daughters Margaret E. DEARINGER and Rebecca CARR. Her husband died shortly after Margaret was born in 1839. Joanna appears as Joan Pitcher HOH on the 1840 Woodford Co. Census. She lives with her daughters in Mercer KYin 1860 and 1870 census. I believe she is the daughter of Jonathan Pitcher but I can't find any evidence of a marriage record. Any help appreciated.

CATLET PEACHER married Jane Mariah Hilman about 1850. They had two children Henry and Jesse. Jesse was born Jan 1853. Catlet and Jane Hilman were listed as parents to Jesse on his death certificate. Who were the parents of Catlet Peacher and of Jane Mariah Hilman? Jane Hilman married about 1860 Andrew Lewis Mills after Catlet died in Aug of 1853. I cannot vertify all of this. Some of this was gotten from the internet and had no information that would vertify it. Jane Hilman Catlet Mills and Andrew Lewis Mills were my great-great-grandparents. I am trying to find info on them. Would appreciate any help! !

I have been trying to extend my Peacher line. My gg-grandfather, Moses Bailey, married MARGARET PEACHER before the 1860 census was taken in Boone Co. Mo. In 1850, I found Alex Pitcher, age 58, with Jno. 27 and Margaret 22, in Howard Co. Mo. That would make Alex's birthdate about 1792. I wonder if this could be Alexander Peacher, son of Reuben and Sarah Johnston Peacher. His birthdate, on the Peacher Family Genealogy website, is listed as 1762 but that is 30+ years before his siblings1 and 4 years before his father's. Do you have any thoughts on this?


SUBJECT: Margaret, Alex. PEACHER?

Researcher is Margie
Posted on Feb, 5, 2000

My g-grandfather was born 1854, in Howard Co., Mo. I have been told his parents were Moses Bailey and MARGARET PEACHER. Margaret was born about 1830, based on her age recorded in 1870 and 1880 census reports.

In the 1850 Howard Co. census I found a 22 year old Margaret born in Mo. listed with Alex Pitcher, age 58 born in Va. There was also one other individual listed whose name I could not decifer, age 27 born in Ky. This is on page 244.

Do you have any ideas about where I can go from here?

Thanks, Margie

Hi, I saw your info on the Peacher Family Page and wanted to know if you could give me any additional info about ELIZABETH PEACHER, b. 05 - 19 - 1825 who married John Brown in 1843 in Howard County, MO. Do you have any of their children together? Any info would be appreciated. I have not had much luck with this line in my family tree.

Thanks a lot,

Hi Kris,
Check out the letter written from Reuben to a daughter. It mentions Elizabeth and John Brown.

MESSAGE In your message, you mentioned the Peachers. I only know of one who was married to a Swearingen. My great-grandfather, James C. Swearingen, had a brother named John Barton Swearingen who married LOUVINA " LOU " PEACHER . on 7 Mar 1871 in Howard County. I do not know the name of her parents or any of her sibblings. John Barton was born in 1853. "Lou" was born between 1852 and 1855 in Missouri and died 19 Nov 1945 in Howard County. I remember Aunt Lou (as she was called by everyone). She had an old pump organ in her farm home near Franklin, Missouri. From time to time, my mother and I would stop by to visit Aunt Lou. Several times she was nice enough to let me play the old organ. I was around 10 or 11 years old and what a thrill!
