I am in search of information on my aunt, Margaret (Maggie) Elizabeth PEACOCK DRIVER. We last heard from her in a letter in March of 1980 and she was living in Muskegon. She was born July 17, 1895 in North Carolina, the daugher of Marion Robert and Tempy MAY PEACOCK. She was married to John DRIVER, who we believe died in the 1970s also in Muskegon. Anyone that can give us some information as to death date and where she is buried would be appreciated. We do not believe there were any other family members, but if there are we would love to hear from them.
