The past is the present for future generations who do not know their history

An idea that maybe we will take up…

Old Photograph Contest. I am working on the details as we speak.

This is a photograph submitted for consideration in an old photograph contest by a newspaper. It is an outstanding photo of an annual reunion of the Peebles Family. Unfortunately, this Peebles family descends from Robert Peebles of Ulster, Ireland. That Robert Peebles was of Scot descent, but many Scots were remanded or left for Ireland and left their Scotland home behind; these are the some of the Scot-Irish that would come to America. The Ulster Peebles are not kindred of Captain David Peebles, or so well respected researchers  state. Nonetheless, it is a piece of history and should be valued.

  1. My name is Sandra Byrd. My mother’s
    maiden name was Peebles. Thomas Huel Dewitt Peebles was her father’s name and he was the son of James Frank Peebles. We are descendants of Captain David Peebles as well. I would love to hear from you and compare notes.

    Sincerely,
    Sandra Byrd
