George W Peed was born 20 April 1777 in Kingston Parish, Gloucester County, Virginia. He was the son of John Thomas Peed and Susanna Peak. On 21 May 1777, he was baptized in Kingston Parish. George's surname, shown as Peed, may also be found as Pead, Peade or Peede in documents. George married first Mary (--?--) 1804. He first appears in Beaufort County, North Carolina, records on 27 October 1810 when he witnessed an indenture between Henry Smaw and Henry Blount. During 1837 through 1839, George purchased land from William Worsley, Luther S Eborn, Samuel Masters, John McWilliams, William Cook and William E Smaw. He married second Sarah Evett, daughter of John Evett Jr and (Female) Warren, between 1846 and 1848 in Beaufort County, North Carolina. He died 28 July 1860 in Richland Township, Beaufort County, North Carolina, at age 83. George W Peed was buried in the George W Peed Cemetery in Durham Creek.
My line of descent is through the marriage of daughter Mary Jane Susan (Peed) Rowe and her second husband, John B Franklin Peed, who was a grandson of my ancestor Henry Peed. Although these two Peed families share the same surname, extensive research has not revealed a lineal relationship between George W Peed and Henry Peed.
