About Peyton Bristow

He was born in 18? on the old farm and when a young man he went to Indiana in the early settling of that country. He settled on White River. When a young man he married a woman named Annie Owens. To them were born 5 children, two brothers and three sisters. Mother died. And not long afterwards word came to him that a tree had fallen on Grandpap and Uncle Ben and

killed them and for him to come and take care of Granma as there was no one but Negro Jo and Uncle John and he was a foolish man to look after her. So father with us five children moved back to the old ranch. This was about the year 1837. He lived with Granma a year or t two and at this time he married a woman by the name of Sheeks. She was a widow with three sons. And not long afterwards he moved to another ranch about 5 miles away and in the year of 1842 or 43 Grandma died. And in the year 1845 father started to move to southwestk Missouri and settled in St. Clair county. Uncle Ed Bristow and my oldest sister were there when father moved out. At this time there were but 7 children in the family. His step-children still in the family. Father settled on Brush Creek. He only made one move after settled. He moved

further down the creek 3 or 4 miles and there died in the latter part of the summer in the year 60. He was a tall man with black eyes and black hair. He was not a fleshy man. He was a Christian. Pardon me, for saying that I believe that he was the greatest man that I ever walked by the side of. He was a man that possessed strong will power. - Written by James Clawson Bristow 1908
