About Abraham Z. Peachey, I

- Forrest Kauffman donated a redware sugar bowl which is painted with blue milk paint and slip bands, dated 1827 and marked with the letters "APMZ". Joel Zook, a brother of Magdalene's, was a redware potterer and probably made this sugar bowl for them as a wedding gift. - Abraham Peachey purchased the farm beside the Waynesburg Road where "Corn meal Davie" used to live from Jacob & Barbara King on March 28, 1828. He purchased a second farm in Menno Twp, about 1 1/2 mile east of Allensville along Front Mt. Road on March 18, 1857 for the sum of $8,000. (Recorded in Deed Book H.H., page 143, June 22, 1857.) Abraham sold this farm to his son Joel Peachey Mar 24, 1869 for the sum of $11,340. After the decease of Joel and Fanny Peachey, it became the property of their chilren, two daughters, namely Martha and Elizabeth and was for many years in their names. Later it was sold to John B. Byler and is now owned by Norman Kanagy. (Joseph E Peachey) - "This was one of the best regulated families the writer ever knew; every thing had its place and every thing was found in its place; the family, both parents and children, were noted for their hospitality and charity, ever willing to lend a helping hand to the needy".
