Notes Albert George and Mary Elizabeth (Bishop) Peery Family

I have been looking at your website and came across a reference to a
marriage between Granville Addison PEERY and Sarah BLACKSHAW in
Wellsville in 1875.

Do you have any further information on Sarah BLACKSHAW?  I'm pretty
sure she is related to my line of Blackshaws but since they all seemed
to call at least one daughter, Sarah, I can't quite pin-point her...

I am connected to all the BLACKSHAW family that were in that area at
the time.  I am also interested in the family of a George BRUCE in
Wellsville around 1890 and also in the SLEIGHT family.

I'd be grateful for any information on Sarah or on any of these names.

From: To: Subject: Re: Fw: Maud Burwell Date: Sunday, November 12, 2000 10:06 PM Dear Mr. Bishop, This is in answer to your interest in the Bishop branch to my family. My Great Grandmother was Eliza Jane (Peery) Hayes born 4/13/1847, died 5/13/1926. Her father was Albert Peery of Tazwell County, Virginia. Her mother was Mary Elizabeth Bishop of Albermarle County Virginia. Mary Bishop was born 1818 and died in Montgermery County Missouri 1902. I obtained this information from and it is confirmed in part in my great-grandfather's (Fielding Hayes (Hays) family bible. I would be greatful for any information you have on the parents of Mary Bishop. Sincerely, Roger L. Hayes
From: To: Subject: Re: Roger L Hayes: great-grandmother on Hayes side (Eliza Jane Peery) married... Date: Sunday, November 12, 2000 11:58 PM Dear Bill, Thank you for you fast response. I've been on the net for only an hour or so and received your last mail. My sources start with my great-grandfather's family bible. I'm a novice at this web research. Family oral history was passed to me about the Bishop's. I stopped by Bishop on vacation last year and picked up a book called "Place Names of the Sierra Nevada". The book has Uncle Samuel Addison Bishop under "Bishop Creek" as follows: "....First Sergeant in the Mariposa Battalion. The creek is named on the Hoffmann and Gardiner map, 1863-67; on the Wheeler Survey atlas sheet 56D, 1878-79, it appears as "Bishop's Creek." This is the same Bishop for whom the Owens Valley town and several geographic features are named." Fielding Hayes (Hays) and Eliza Jane (Peery) Hayes were my great-grandparents. It was their youngest son, David Hayes who was my grandfather. David always called himself Lloyd for some reason and that's what's on his tomestone. But in the family bible he's David (birthday!). My father, Rexford got out of the Marine Corps in about 1925 and went home to Wellsville, Missouri to marry. In 1926, Eliza Jane (Perry) Hayes died. Her husband, Fielding, (civil war vet) had died in 1911. The same year Eliza died, my father, Rex, took his father and mother (Lloyd and Maude) and his five brothers and sisters (Ronald, Irene, Kenneth, Fielding, and, little Helen) to Alhambra, California, near Los Angeles, to start a new life. Rex was the oldest. The whole family did well in various persuits. Rex, my dad, went in the dairy business and went broke during the depression but later became a business agent for the Teamsters Union (milk drivers local). Kenny started a Kennel and raised Springer Spaniels. Kenny's Kennel is still in El Monte, California under a new owner. Fielding worked for an airplane manufacurer during WWII and made a good living. Irene married a fine gentleman who became chief of homicide for L. A. P. D. . Helen joined the Navy during the War and married late after buying a home on the G.I bill that was left to her folks. She married a great guy after the war. Ronald died early after an accident on a horse. His widow went back home to the Carolina's and the family lost touch with her. I'm affraid I know little more about Eliza's family but I will keep you posted when I do. I do remember a story about her being a very tough fronteer woman who was very much against drinking and made that clear to everyone in the family. Good Baptist. I also remember stories about her Peery side of the family. My grandmother Maude appearently didn't care for the odor the Peery boys evoked in the winter when they would thaw out by the stove. You probably didn't need to know that. I intend to put something on the net in soon but for the record now here are they Hayes' as I know them in California briefly: Rexford (born 1903) and Bernice (Riley) Hayes: James Allen Hayes born 1927 (mother Florence). Leonard Hayes born 1939. Roger Hayes born 1948. Ronald Hayes (born 1907) (died young don't know name of wife): One son: William now living in Gastonia, North Carolina I believe. Irene (Hayes) Brown (born 1904) and Garner Brown: Son: Harris Brown Kenneth (born 1910) and Laraine Hayes: Son Robert (deceased) and Daughter Janet (Hayes) Huggins of Story, Wy. Fielding (born 1916) and Virginia Hayes: Sons Ronald and Dennis. Daughter Linda. Helen (Hayes) (born 1918) and William Bey. No children. Unless otherwise indicated these folks all live in Southern California and we stay in touch. Of course there are many more cousins I didn't list. All my Uncles and Aunts above are passed on except Helen's husband. Thank you so much for the info and I hope to keep in touch with you and others. Hope I didn't tell you more than you wanted to know. Sincerely, Roger Hayes
From: To: Subject: Re: Roger L Hayes: great-grandmother on Hayes side (Eliza Jane Peery) married... Date: Tuesday, November 14, 2000 4:21 PM Dear Bill, I think you misunderstood me about Fielding and Eliza Hayes. Eliza died in 1926, the same year my father brought his parents, Lloyd and Maude Hayes to California along with my father's siblings. Fielding died in 1911 I believe. Fielding and Eliza are buried in a cemetary near the center of Wellsville. I can't recall the name of it, sorry. Many of the Hayes family are buried there including Eliza's babies that died very young. I just don't know how to determine if Fielding's father is buried there. I know they owned land around Wellsville too. Fielding was born in 1841 so I imagine his father was born 20 or more years before. I don't even know any of Fielding's sibling names. I appreciate any help you can offer. It would solve a great mistery for me. Sincerely Rog Hayes
