Many of the Peddicord families that moved west can trace there roots to KY. In addition to recent efforts to document the Peddicord family in Maryland, John L. Petticord of TN has been researching the records for the Kentucky Peddicord Families. The information below is based on John's work, information on Emmanuel Peddicord's descendants from Debbie Jackson, and other information from my own research. We hope to soon have a sound basis for some of these relations once the available wills are obtained. There is some "proof" for some of the relations shown below, but many of them are speculative at the present time. Please check the linked group sheets for more up-to-date information on these families. This page was created about 1998 when research into the various families was beginning, and while it gets corrections it has not be rewritten recently.


The oldest records of Peddicord settlers in KY is that of John Peddicord who settled in Mason Co., KY. John's ancestry though is unknown. According to the 1830 census, John was born between 1740 and 1750 which would possibly make him a grandson of John Petticoate and Sarah's Dorsey. He is not probably of William Peddicord and Sarah Belt's line or that of Nathan and Rebecca Lucas. It would seen unlikely that he was a son of John Peddicord Jr. who apparently went to Stafford Co VA after his "bankruptcy" in Maryland. Also there is no information if Nicholas Peddicord and Sarah Jacks every had issue. and the issue of Dorsey Peddicord is not known.

I suspect that he is the John Peddicord who married Rebecca Boring 27 Aug 1771 at St Johns Parish in Baltimore Co., MD. However I do not know who this John's parents were. My guess is that his father was probably Dorsey Peddicord. Dorsey had an illegitmate child with Mary Barnes ca. 1746/1747 (I do not know if this child was a boy or girl). We do know Dorsey was married in 1746 and in 1751 his wife was named Sarah.

What we do know is that John was married to Rebecca ? and appears to have had a large family. By 1793 he was living in Kentucky and apparently had two sons over the age 15, (who were listed on the tax list as age 15-21. John died in 1836 leaving a will. The will of John Peddicord was admitted to court in1836 in Book K (423) The will did not name his children, however it indicated that he had 6 children living and 3 who were deceased. The will of John Peddicord was produced in court in May 1836. He appointed J.P. Downing as executor and Abi Peddicord as executrix. He wished that his land and personal property be divided equally among his 6 surviving children and the heirs of his 3 deceased children. (he does not name them) Witnesses to the will: Robert Whips and Abel Downing. Witnesses proving the will: Robert Whips, Abel Downing and Jacob P. Downing Those producing $10,000 bond: Jacob P. Downing, George Peyton, Abel Downing and Reason Downing. Liberty is reserved for Abi Peddicord. [the will was obtained and abstracted by John Petticord] Based on the census and other records, it appears that John had the following nine children:

i John Peddicord Jr (born between 1772 and 1784, died ca. 1819 Mason Co.). John Jr died leaving a will It appears from the 1810 census that he had a son born between 1800 and 1810 and 2 daughters born between 1800 and 1810. His will was produced in court in October 1819, The date the will was written is not recorded. He left all property, household belongings, livestock and slaves to "his beloved wife, Jane Peddicord." Upon her death, he desires that all of the above be equally divided among his children: Jacob Peddicord, Elizabeth Peddicord, Rebecca Peddicord and Abi Peddicord and their heirs. Jane may choose to give them up to one quarter of the estate at age 20. Witnesses to the original will: A.D. Orr, Joesph Thompson, Jacob Slack Witnesses proving the will: Joesph Thompson, Jacob Slack and Jane Peddicord (Abstract from John Petticord) The will of Jacob Slack of Mason Co. names his daughter Jane Peddicord. Thus Jane the wife of John Jr. was nee SLACK. In the 1850 census of Mason Co.:
Entry #457 Jane Petticord, age 68 F W, reality valued at $2100, b. MD
Elizabeth Barnaugh, age 14, F W, b. KY
Jane (or Jonie) Weaden, age 10, F W, b. KY.
Thus, Jane Slack was b. ca. 1782 in MD. Jane Peddicord signed a will on 27 Sep 1859 in Mason Co., KY. She had an estate probated in Mar 1864 in Mason Co., KY. Jane Peddicord This will was written on September 27, 1859. The will was produced in court in March of 1864. The estate was settled in July 1867. She left $500 and a bed to her daughter Elizabeth Braunaugh. She leaves $500 to her granddaughter Rebecca Braugnaugh. She left her house and lot in Washington to her grandson Charles Henry Weedon. The balance of her estate she willed to her grandchildren Henry Weedon, Jane and Maria Weedon equally. She directed her administrator to pay her daughter Rebecca Curtis the sum of $1. Witnesses: W. H. Wadsworth and James T. Dye Notes on the settlement: She apparently named John Henry Curtiss (presumably her son-in-law) as her administrator. He apparently declined and the court appointed J. J. Wood to settle the estate in his place. All listed got paid except Charles Henry Weedon who received an initial payment but died before the final settlement. Also, there is no record of Rebecca Curtis getting her $1. [will obtained and abstracted by John Petticord]. John Peddicord and Jane SLACK had the following children:

A. Jacob Peddicord. B. Elizabeth Peddicord was married to John C. BRONAUGH on 8 Oct 1827 in Mason Co.,KY. Elizabeth Peddicord and John C. BRONAUGH had the following children:
1. Rebecca BRONAUGH.
2. Elizabeth (b. ca 1836)

C. Rebecca Peddicord was married to Nicholas CURTIS on 9 Jan 1828 in Mason Co., KY.
D. Abi Peddicord was married to Wyatt WEEDON on 24 Sep 1832 in Mason Co., KY. Abi Peddicord and Wyatt WEEDON had the following children:
1. Charles Henry WEEDON.
2. Jane WEEDON (b. ca 1840).
3. Maria WEEDON.

ii. Abel Peddicord (born between 1772 and 1780, died between 1840 and 1850) Able appears in the 1810 tax list of Mason Co with one female age 16-26, apparently his wife. He is believed to be the Abel Peddicord on the 1819 tax list of Brown Co., OH and 1820 census of Brown Co., OH. In the 1830 cenus of Brown county, Abel Pedicord has one male 5-10, 1 male 10-15, 2 males 15-20, 1 male 50-60, 1 female age 15-20 and 1 female age 30-40. He appears in the 1840 census of Brown Co., OH with one male age 15-20, and two males age 20-30, one male age 60-70, one female age 10 to 15, and one female aged 40 to 50 in his household. One person is listed as employed in agriculture. It would appear that the following from the 1850 census in Brown Co is part of Abel/Able's family:
Susan Peddicord, age 58, F., Reality valued at $600, born Virginia
John E. Peddicord, age 27, M., Farmer, born Ohio
Leathe? (Dethe) B. Peddicord, age 24, F., born Ohio
The census records indicate Abel had two sons born between 1810 and 1820. Thus Abel and wife seem to be the parents of:

1. a son born between 1810 and 1815
2. a son bron between 1810 and 1815 (This seems likely to been Nelson M Peddicord]
3. a son born between 1815 and 1820
4. a son born between 1820 and 1825. This may be John E. Peddicord age 27 in 1850.
5. a daughter born between 1810 and 1815
6. Aleathe B. age 24 in 1850. Aletha Peddicord married 4 April 1854 George Courts in Brown Co., OH

iii. Nicholas Peddicord (b. bet 1772 and 1784) married on 22 April 1801 in Mason Co., to Cynthia Craighead. They had at least 3 sons by 1810 (3 males under 10). Presumably he is the Nicholas Peddicord in the 1820 census of Brown Co., OH. In the 1830 census of Brown county, Nicholas Pedicord is listed with: 1 male age 5-10, 2 males age 10-15, 1 male aged 20-30, 1 male age 50-60, 1 female aged 15-20, and 1 female aged 40-50. Nicholas appears in the 1840 census of Brown Co OH with, 2 males aged 15-20, one male aged 60 to 70, and one female aged 50 to 60. one employed in mining and one in agriculture.
so it would appear that Nicholas had

1. a son born between 1800 and 1810 -This appears to be John Peddicord b. 1802 and married Rebecca Hiter.
2. a son born between 1800 and 1810 -Maybe the James Peddicord age 30-40 in 1830 census of Brown Co.
3. a son born between 1800 and 1810
4. Robert C. Peddicord b. ca 1817, his wife was Clarrisa; in 1860 in Brown Co., OH his mother, Cynthia, is living in his household.
5. son born ca. 1820.
6 son born between 1820 and 1825 - Probably the Andrew Peddicord listed below:
7. daughter born between 1815 and 1820.
In the 1850 census of Brown Co., 70 year old Cynthia Peddicord (born in PA) is in the household of Andrew Peddicord age 30, who within the year had married Jane, apparently the 39 year old widow of a MILLER. The census entry for Andrew Peddicord is: Andrew Peddicord, age 30, M., Farmer, reality valued $2800, b. Kentucky, married in past year
Jane Peddicord, age 39, b. PA, married in past year.
John F. Miller, age 15, M., Farmer, b. OH
Richard M. Miller, age 14, M. b. OH
Martin A. Miller age 12, M., b. Ohio (age could be 17)
James A. Miller age 11, M., b. Ohio
Elsey M. Miller., age 7, F., b. Ohio
Cordelia A Miller, age 5, F., b. Ohio
Cynthia Peddicord, age 70, F., b. PA

iv. Jacob Peddicord (b. bet, 1772 and 1784. died 15 August 1850, Clermont county, OH.) In the 1810 census, Jacob appears to have 3 sons under 10 and 3 daughters under 10 and also owned 4 slaves. It appears that Jacob was married to Senny ?? born a. 1787 in PA. He and his family seem to have moved across the Ohio river and settled in Clermont county, Ohio. He is probably the Jacob Peddicord buried at Mt. Zion Cemetery in Clermont county who died on 15 August 1850. He therefore missed being counted in the 1850 census by a few days, however, he should be listed in the Mortality tables. In the 1810 census of Mason county, KY. Buried in the same lot at Mt. Zion Cemetery are: Senny Peddicord (d. 26 Nov 1872), King C. Peddicord (d. 17 July 1852), C. P. Peddicord (died 24 Sept 1876), Joshua Peddicord (d. 3 Dec 1878). Buried in an adjacent lot are Anna Peddicord and Ruth Peddicord.

Caleb Peddicord b. ca. 1805 in KY, died 24 Sept 1876 in Clermont Co OH) in 1850, Caleb and apparently his brother Joshua are found together in 1850 and 1860 in Clermont county living with apparently their mother named SSenny b. ca. 1784 in PA. It is interesting to note that in 1860 Caleb along with Joshua and their apparent mother were enumerated next to John Armstrong and Ann/Alice, apparently the widow of King C. Peddicord. It would seem resonable to infer that these three men in Clermont Co were brothers
Joshua Peddicord b. ca. 1807 in KY in Clermont Co OH in 1850
son b. 1800-1810
King C. Peddicord b. ca.1819 in KY, in Clermont Co OH in 1850 King C. Peddicord died between on 17 July 1852 and is buried with his parents at Mt Zion Cemetery. He was married to The 1850 census shows in Monroe Twp., Entry #78/78, 7 Oct 1850: King C. Peddicord, age 31, M, Farmer, reality valued at $1800, b. Kentucky; Alice Peddicord age 31, F., b. Ohio; Basil Peddicord, age 3., M., b. Ohio; Oliver Peddicord, age 1/12 (1 month), M, b. Ohio; and Samuel McCormick, age 9, M, b. Ohio. However in the 1860 census we find: #268/263 John Armstrong age 56 M farmer reality $2200/$300 b. MD; Ann age 42 F domestic duties b. OH; Basil P age 14, M, b. OH; Joshua Pedicord age 12 M b. OH; Oliver Pedicord age 10 b. OH; S. P. Pedicord age 8 F b. OH; J. W. Armstrong age 3 M b. OH; S.(?) L. Armstrong age 4 months b. OH; L. Armstrong age 18 years farm laborer b. KY. This it seems that Ann/Alice was widowed ca. 1855-1856 and remarried John Armstrong a widower. Thus issue of King C. Peddicord seem to include:
1. Basil b. ca. 1847
2. Josuha b. ca. 1848
3. Oliver b. ca 1850
4. S. P. (daughter) b. ca 1852

daughter b. 1800-1810
daughter b. 1800-1810
daughter b. 1800-1810
daughter b. 1815-1820

v. Abi Peddicord b. ca 1780, d. 23 Jan 1856, Mason Co. identified in death records as the daughter of John and Rebecca.

vi. Sarah Peddicord married 11 March 1799 to Joseph Downing.

vii. Elizabeth Peddicord married 17 Oct 1805 Robert Craighead

viii. Emmanuel Peddicord (born ca.1780, d. ca 1838), Emmanuel appears in the 1810, 1820, and 1830 census of Mason Co., It seems to be just him and his wife in 1810. By 1820 he is listed with apparently 2 sons and 4 daughters (all under the age of 10). In 1830 he has apparently 3 more sons (2 males under 5 years, 1 male age 5 to 10, 2 males age 10 to 15) along with additional daughters, (1 female to age 5, 2 females age 15 to 20) plus himself (age 40-50) and his wife (age 40-50). Notes by a great grandaughter, Anna Gillespie, states that Emanuel died as the result of a run away team of horses while he was working the field when his son Robert was age 10, so this would in 1838. Emanual is in the 1810 Census of Mason Co with 1 male 16-26 and 1 female 16-26. In the 1840 Census his wife is listed as head of household: Mrs. Delilah Petticord, 2 males and 5 to 10, 2 males 10 to 15, 1 male 15-20, 1 male 20 to 30, 1 female 5-10, 1 female 10-15, 1 female 15-20, 1 female 50-60.

The Great Mystery is MASON County is the 1820 Census In the 1820 census we find an entry for:
William M. Petticord 4 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 1 0 -
That is 4 males under age 10, 1 male over 45, one female under 10 and one female age 26 to 45. The other entries for 1820 in Mason Co are
John Peddicord one male over 45, one male 16 to 18 and one male 18 to 26, one female 26-45 and one female over 45
E. Peddicord (no doubt Emanuel) has 2 males under 10, one male 26 to 45, 4 females under 10, and one female age 26 to 45.
Son Nicholas seems to be in the 1820 Brown Co., Ohio census and son Abel is on the 1819 tax list in Brown Co., OH.

Next Generation: There a number of Peddicords with ties to Mason Co who were born between 1800 and 1820 and are therefore probably grandchildren of John and Rebecca.

An Edward Peddicord signed a marriage bond 25 November 1845 for the marriage of Eleanor Peddicord and Abraham Shockey.

The widow of perhaps Jacob Peddicord was Alice Peddicord. In the 1850 census of Mason Co. is Entry #414, 3rd District taken 7 Sept 1850, Alice Pettichord, age 68, F W, reality valued at $1000, born MD, Rebecca Britt, age 21, F W, b. KY, Elizabeth M.

She desired that her house and lot be sold and money collected to be held by J. P. Downing who is to pay 6 percent per anum to Rebecca Britt and Elizabeth Fenell equally. The principal is to be retained by J. P. Downing and appropriated to the education of the children of Rebecca Britt : Elizabeth May and Anna equally. The other half to the child of Elizabeth Fenell, May Fenell by name or to her mother and sisters in case of her death. Witnesses to the will: S. B. Owens and David Berry Witness proving the will: David Berry Additional poof in March court: Samuel B. Owens Securities provided by: Jacob P. Downing, Abel Downing and Wyatt Weedon. This Abi Peddicord's will was proven two years before the death of Abi of John and Rebecca, therefore this Abi with the will must be a daughter or wife of Jacob or one of his brothers..


It appears that at least some of the descendants of Nicholas Peddicord stayed in Brown county Ohio. One clue to the identity of his children, is that Cynthia was living in the households of Robert C. (1860) and Andrew (1850) Peddicord.

1. John PEDDICORD was born about 1802 in KY. He was married to Rebecca HITER (daughter of John HITER and Barbara ELY) on September 2, 1830 in Brown Co., OH. Rebecca HITER was born about 1813 in Ohio. John PEDDICORD and Rebecca HITER had the following children:

i. Jacob PEDDICORD (born about 1836 in Ohio ). He was married to Mary Elizabeth MATHEWS had the following children:
i. Carry PEDDICORD was born about 1862.
ii. Clara Emma PEDDICORD (born about 1867).
ii. Barbara PEDDICORD was born about 1833 in OH.
iii. Andrew PEDDICORD was born about 1846 in OH.
iv. Robert Craighead PEDDICORD (born about February 1850 in OH ). He was married to Belle CUMBERLAND on June 1, 1876 in Highland Co., OH.

Robert C. PEDDICORD was born about 1817 in OH. He was married to Clarissa. Clarissa was born about 1822 in Ohio. Robert C. PEDDICORD and Clarissa had the following children:

i. Osange PEDDICORD was born about 1840.

ix. Julia PEDDICORD was born about 1856 in OH.
x. Robert PEDDICORD was born about 1858 in OH.
xi. Clarissa PEDDICORD was born about 1859 in OH.

A transcript of the 1820 census for Mason Co shows a William M. Peddicord with four males under 10, one male over age 45, one female under 10, and one female age 26 to 45. (This needs to be verified)

It is also likely that a number of the Peddicords born in KY between 1800 and 1820 and found in Ohio in 1850 may be grandchildren of John and Sarah: among these are:

Lydia Peddicord married 16 Sept 1838 in Brown Co., OH to William Fight.

Asenith Peddicord married 10 Oct 1834 in Brown Co., OH to Joseph Barnes. Asenith is possibly a daughter of Abel or Nicholas Peddicord.

Jemima Peddicord married 8 Nov 1832 in Clermont Co., OH to Lewis Bushman. Jemima is probably a sister of Caleb, Joshua and King C., I suspect they were children of Jacob Peddicord.

John Peddicord (b. ca. 1802 in KY ) found in the 1860 census of Clermont Co., OH; #318/313 John Peddicord age 58 M Farmer $3100/$500 b. KY; Nancy J. age 38 F b. OH; John W. age 11 M b. OH; Delilah age 14 F, b. OH; Mary age 8, b. OH. This John may also be a sibbling of Caleb, Joshua, and King C. Peddicord. John W. (b. ca. 1849) married in Clermont Co., OH on 13 Sept 1865 Jennie Luke and his sister Delilah (b. ca. 1846) married on 1 March 1861 Alexander White.

Another Clermont county family member was Abirill Peticord who married Asa D. Spinning on 9 April 1849 in Clermont Co., OH.

At this point I would hypothesis (based on head counts in the early census) that King C., Caleb, John, Jemima, Abirill, and Joshua were issue of Jacob (perhaps a.k.a William in the 1820 census). Milzor could be a son of Jacob or Nicholas. Abel Peddicord apparently did not have children until after 1810.

In the 1820 census of Brown Co OH is Abel, Nicholas and James Peddicord.


Information on the Clark Co Peddicords comes from John Petticord, Simone Haslam, and other sources.

The PEDDICORDs in Clark Co., Kentucky appear to be the sons of Nathan Peddicord and Hannah Owings of Washington Co., MD. A key to this identity is that it is unlikely that there was more than one Leakin D. Peddicord around at the time. The will of Hanah (nee Owings) Peddicord, dated 18 Feb 1794 and proved 12 March 1796 " to son Nathan negroe boy George, to son William, mullatto boy Henry, to daughter Aleithia Davis negroe woman Nanny which was lately given to me by my brother Caleb Owings. To son Leakin D. negroe boy Dick, and L10, feather bed and furniture. To daughter Rachel Peddicord, malutto woman Lidia, feather bed, chest of drawers, cupboard, colt, six silver teaspoons, To daughter Althia, my gold ring. To son Leakin, my silver buckles. Residue equally to children. Sons Nathan and Leakin executors". Her husband, Nathan Peddicord, was the son of William Peddicord and Sarah Belt. This can be proven by William's will and several deeds to settle his estate. Hannah was the daughter of John Owings and Hannah Stinchcomb. John Owings was the son of Captain Richard Owings/Owens and Rachel. Hannah's parents were Nathaniel Stinchcomb Jr. and Hannah Randall, daughter of Christopher Randall. Nathaniel's parents were Nathaniel Stinchcomb and Tomassin Mastey.

William Peddicord purchased land in Clark Co 26 April 1796. William and Leakin Peddicord are on the 1797 tax list of Clark Co. On 24 April 1798 Maragret Peddicord, widow marries Harry Browning, witnesses to the marriage were Leakn. Peddicord and Samuel Myles, Samuel Miles surety. Both William and Larkin Peddicord are on the 1800 tax list of Clark Co. and appear in the 1800 census of Clark Co. William Peddicord is listed as the owner of 98 acres on Boones Creek in 1801 along with one black cattle and four horses. Larkin Peddicord owned two horses and no land. William Peddicord's name is on the Mason Co. tax lists from 1798 to 1804, and then from 1807 until 1839. Leakin appears on the tax lists from 1802 to 1804.

It would seem plausable that Margaret is the widow of Nathan Peddicord with one of her brother-in-laws witnessing her remarriage in 1798. Until the will of William Peddicord is reviewed it is uncertain as to who the parents of several of the apparent children of these three brothers were. However there is proof in the records as to some of William's children.

William Peddicord (born between 1760 and 1770, d. ca. 1849 since his will (available here for viewing) was dated 11 Dec 1843 and proved 22 Oct 1849) In the 1810 census of Clark Co he has: 1 male under10, 1 male 10-16, 1 male 16-26, 1 male 45 and older, 3 females under10, 1 female 10-16, one female 26-45, and one female 45 and older. In 1830 William Petticord has 1 male age 15-20, 1 male age 60-70, and one female age 60-70. In the 1840 census William's household has one male 20-30, one male 70-80, two females under age 5, and one female age 60 to 70. There is a Peddicord Cemetery in Clark Co., located on the Grimes Mill Road. Some of William's daughter's family are known to be buried there. William Peddicord was married to " Preciouse" who was born in Maryland ca. 1773. His wife is living with her son William Jr. in the 1850 census of Clark Co., (though the microfilm of the census for them is very faint and hard to read). Based on his will and the census records, William's descendants are:

i. Ellender Peddicord who married 13 March 1812 to Richard Morton, William Peddicord was surety for this marriage. Richard Morton is buried in the old Peddicord Cemetery, b. Nov 22, 1793, died 1827, a Baptist Minister, early pastor of old Providence Church. They had at least one son, Richard.

ii William Peddicord Jr. (b. 1 Jan 1813, d. 25 Oct 1853) married 3 Dec 1833 Zantipy (Xantippe) Miles (born 4 Sept 1808. died 29 aug 1882). Wiliam Jr. appears in the 1840 census with one male under 5, one male 5 to 10, one male 20 -30, one female under 5, one female 5-10 and one female age 30-40. In the 1850 census of the 2nd district of Clark Co.: William Peddicord age 37 a farmer b. KY, Hanlippa? (Xantrippe) age 41 b. KY; Precius (Preciouse) F age 77 b. MD ( his mother); Harriet M age 15, b. KY; Arabella F age 16, b. KY; Thomas age 11 b. KY, Sarah M. age 9, b. KY; Mary M. age 7. b. KY, Henreitta age 4 b. KY. In the 1860 Census Xantrippe Peddicord is the head of household age 51, Farmer, b. KY, with her are: Harriet A. age 24, Bell F. age 22, Thomas J. age 21, a farmer; Marah M. age 18; Mollie M age 16; Henrietta age 13; and Willis P age 6 (female). also in the household is Henry Howard a 65 year old black , day laborer born in MD. Henry would seem to be the slave given to William Peddicord by his mother Hannah in her will of 1796. Xantrippe is listed in the 1870 census. His family from the cesnus data:
i. Harriet M/A PEDDICORD was born about 1835 in KY.
ii. Arabella F. "Bell" PEDDICORD was born about 1838.
iii. Thomas J PEDDICORD was born about 1839 in KY.
iv. Sarah M PEDDICORD was born about 1841 in KY.
v. Mary M. PEDDICORD was born about 1843 in KY.
vi. Henrietta PEDDICORD was born on 19 Mar 1845 in Clark Co., KY. her birth date also listed as 18th vs 19th. She died on 5 Jul 1870 in Clark Co., KY. She was buried in Peddicord Cemetery, Grimes Mill Road, Clark Co., KY.
vii. Willis P PEDDICORD was born about 1854 in KY.

iii. Matilda Peddicord b. 9 May 1799, d. 6 Oct 1875) married Zachariah Poindexter (b. 29 Nov 1796, d. 5 July 1860). The marriage records indicate that she was the daughter of William who consented to the marriage. They had at least one daughter Eleanor F. who married G. L. Barbee

iv. Bethann Peddicord married 19 Dec 1827 Lamentatin Bush, the marriage records record her as the daughter of William Peddicord who consented to the marriage. The surety for the marriage was Carlton Peddicord. They had a daughter, Lucy Ann (called Lucy Jane in her grandfather's will) Bush born 1831 who is buried at the Peddicord Cemetery,

v. Carlton Peddicord Carlton was born between 1800 and 1810 and predeceased his father. His father's will mentions the "children of Carlton Peddicord, my grandchildren" and the codicil mentions "the heirs of Carlton Peddicord". Carlton Peddicord married 20 Aug 1828 Louisa Miles, John Miles as surety In the 1830 Census Carlton Peddicord appears with one male under 5, one male age 20 to 30, one female age 20 to 30 and one female age 60 to 70, and two slaves. Carlton served on the Winchester Patrol in 1830. I have not identified by these grandchildren are. However, they might include: Susan Peddicord b. ca. 1833 who was living in 1850 in the household of Elizabeth Stringfellen in Clark Co. Another is probably Mary E. Peddicord who was born ca. 1836 and living in 1850 in the houshold of a John Mills (age 71. p. MD) in Henry Co KY (this John Miles is presumably her grandfather). Some of our researchers had indicated that Carlton Peddicord is listed in the reality tax lists for Henry Co., KY.

Other Persons that are likely the children of Nathan or Leakin :

Nathaniel Peddicord (b. 1790 in Maryland ) married 15 Sept 1814 Clark Co., Nancy Dawson. Larkin Dawson Surety for the marriage. He may be the son of Nathan Peddicord since he apparently was known as a youth by the surname of Dailey. In 1810 Richard Blew of Clark Co advertised for a runaway apprentice to the blacksmith trade named Nathaniel Dailey age 20, may be going by Nathaniel Peddicord. Since Nathaniel was a blacksmith in 1850 census age born in 1790. This would seem to fit. Perhaps his mother was widowed a second time and remarried a Dailey. In the 1820 census Nathaniel has one male to age 5, one male 45 or older, two females age 10 to 16, one female age 45 and older, and two male slaves under age 14. In 1830 census, Nathaniel has two males under 5, one male age 5-10, one male age 10-15, one male age 30-40, one female age 5 to 10, two females age 10 to 15, and one female age 30 to 40. In 1840 Nathaniel has one male under 5, two males age 5 to 10, one male age 15-20, one male age 20-30, one male age 40-50, one female under 5, one female age 5 to 10, one female age 15-20, one female age 20-30, and one female age 40 to 50. He is in the 1850 census of Dist 1 of Clark Co. Nathan age 60 b. MD, a Blacksmith; Nancy age 55 b. VA; William G. age 30 b. KY, Laborer; James age 28, Laborer, b. KY; Polly age 25, b. KY; John age 20 b. KY Laborer; Elizabeth age 18 b. KY; Thomas age 16 b. KY; Nancy age 11 F., b. KY. Next entry in the census is Davison Peddicord age 23 b. KY Farmer, Frances age 23 (F). His children would seem to be:
i. daughter b. between 1815-1820, probably Sue G. who died 12 Nov 1829
ii. daughter b. between 1815-1820
iii. William Green PEDDICORD was born1 Jan 1821in KY, died 26 May 1885) His tombstone is inscribed W. C. Peddicord(b. 1 Jan 1821, d. 26 May 1885) married Sarah Allen ??? (died 12 Nov 1909) buried in Winchester Cemetery. He is probably the Green Pedichord age 38 Blacksmith b. KY listed in the 1860 census living with an Ester Daniel age 77 and Lettica Allen age 40.
iv. James PEDDICORD was born about 1822 in KY.
v. Polly PEDDICORD was born about 1825 in KY.
vi. Nathaniel Dawson PEDDICORD. b. 1827

ix. Thomas L (Petticord) PEDDICORD. born 5 Feb 1834 Clark Co., KY,
x. Nancy PEDDICORD was born about 1839 in KY.

Caleb (Kaleb) Peddicord married 18 Sept 1814 Nancy Kawson.

Elizabeth Petticord (transcribed as Petiwood) married 29 Jan 1816 Joseph Rennick

Sue G. Peddicord (died 12 Nov 1829) buried Winchester Cemetery. She is probably one of the older daughters of Nathaniel Peddicord and Nancy Dawson.

Shadrick/Shadrack PEDDICORD was born ca. 1790-1800 in KY and was married on 11 April 1822 to Lucinda Doggett in Clark Co., KY He then married in Henry County KY on 16 May 1839 to Mary Jane Palmer. He would appear to be the son of Larkin D. or Nathaniel Peddicord.

In the Next Generation of the Family

Dawson Peddicord, of Nathaniel, appears in the 1860 Census as Dorcey Peddicord (of course Dorsey is a Peddicord family name). Dorcey Peddicord age 33, Farmer b. KY, Frances age 34, John age 9, James age 6 and Nancy age 2. He was married to Frances CLEM in Nov 1848 in Clark Co., KY. Marriage bond Clark Co., KY 21 Nov 1848 Surety: George Hampton.

Thomas L (Petticord) PEDDICORD was born on 5 Feb 1834 in Clark Co., KY. Children and marriage data in the "History of Caldwell Co. Mo." He was married to Caroline JONES on 4 Aug 1861. Caroline JONES was born in KY. Thomas L (Petticord) PEDDICORD and Caroline JONES had the following children:
i. Mertie PEDDICORD.
ii. Minnie PEDDICORD.
iii. Gertie PEDDICORD.
iv. Willie PEDDICORD.
v. Johnnie PEDDICORD.


The Peddicords in these Counties seem linked together by the Census and tax lists. From the rough data it seems that the progenitor of this family is a Caleb Peddicord born between 1770 and 1780 in Maryland. He first appears in the 1820 census of Bourbon Co. and also is in the 1830 and 1840 censuses of Bourbon County. This Caleb Peddicord is apparently from Maryland, as Richard Peddicord his apparent son was born in 1806 in Maryland. Who is this Caleb? One theory is that he is the son of Caleb Peddicord, the Methodist circuit rider who died between about 1785 and Rachel Barnes. This Caleb Peddicord was apprenticed in Baltimore in 1799 to John Merryman to become a Miller. This Caleb was born on 21 Dec 1783 which seems to young to be the Caleb in Bourbon Co. Another good possiblity is this Caleb is the son of Jasper Peddicord and Rebecca Belt. This Caleb was born ca. 1772 and is listed in the 1800 and 1810 cenus of Montgomery Co., MD, but is not there in 1820 or following years. This Caleb from the census records in MD seems to have had one son born between 1794 and 1800 and 3 sons born between 1800 and 1810. In her book about the Peddicord family, Mrs India (Peddicord) Logan states that her grandfather Jasper Peddicord had a cousin Caleb Peddicord who emigrated from Maryland to Kentucky in 1830.

The Bourbon County Tax lists are interesting in that we find Peddicord families on them from the late 1820s to 1844. The tax lists do not show them as being taxed on any reality, however Samuel seems to have a large estate under the equalization law.

In the 1830 Census of Bourbon County is the household of Richard Peddicoard

Caleb Peddicord in Bourbon Co (1816-1903) appears in the 1850 and 1860 census in Nicholas County. In 1850 Caleb is age 32, farmer reality valued at $3000, and b. in KY, Eliza J is age 27 b. KY, and John W. is age 9, b. KY. Also living with them is a Ambrose Bramblette age 24 farmer b. KY.
In 1860 Caleb is listed as age 39, Elizab J is age 35, John W. is age 19 and Mary P. is age 5.

So this family seems to be a Caleb Peddicord b. ca. 1770, his wife was born ca. ca 1770-1780. They were in Bourbon Co., KY by 1820. If he is the Caleb formerly of Montgomery Co., MD, he would have had in addition to the below children, a son born between 1795 and 1800 and a son born between 1880 and 1810.
i. Richard Peddicord (b. 29 Aug 1805 in MD, d. 6 Aug 1888) married (1st)Louisiana J. Marsh on 3 Feb 1827 in Harrison Co., KY and married 2nd Eliza J. Mouzen (b. 1810, d. 1898)

There is a Richard S. Peddicord b. ca. 1841 and died in Harrison County on 21 July 1915.

Another Richard Peddicord b. ca. 1856 (apparently the Richard who died on 15 March 1944 in Harrison Co.) is living in his mother-in-laws household in 1880, Ellen Nichols age 59 b.
