E-familytree.net is my personal genealogy hobby site.
The data contained here has been gathered through 20 years of genealogy. It contains
everyone I know who are connected to European Royalty or Nobility. Some small
part of it is my original research, but most of it has been shared with me.
It is important to understand:
This is SPECULATIVE DATA. Most of it is unverified. Use it for hints and pointers, but DO
YOUR OWN RESEARCH!

1). We want to stress that there is no documentary evidence that George Pegram, born circa 1727, is the father and or grandfather of George Scott Pegram, Jr.. Most of the research on this line was done during the 1970s by Robert E. Bob Pegram of Dallas, Texas. It was his opinion that George Scott Pegram, Jr. was a descendant of Edward Pegram. However, Dr. Simmons, after reviewing the same source records, decided that this was questionable and was inclined to place George Scott Pegram, Jr. as a descendant of George Pegram, the brother of Edward and Daniel. My recollection is that in conversations with Bob Pegram during the 1970s, I told him that I also felt that George Scott Pegram, Jr. was probably not descended from Edward. At the same time, Bob Pegram did a great job of tracing the descendants of George Scott Pegram, Jr. who appeared in present Cheatham Co., Tennessee shortly after 1800. Since we want to share the work of Bob Pegram with the many descendants of George Scott Pegram, Jr., we have arbitrarily placed him as a grandson of George Pegram, brother of Daniel Pegram of Warren Co. and Edward Pegram of Dinwiddie Co. With this introduction, we hope that someone with a good analytical eye will again review the limited source material available to make a determination as to the best possible choice for the father of George Scott Pegram, Jr. Phil Alfeld, a descendant of Baker Pegram recently found the following at the Virginia State Library on the microfilm for miscellaneous Dinwiddie County records for 1763 May George Pegram granted an Ordinary license Logically this should be George Pegram, son of Daniel Pegram and at last places George in Dinwiddie County, Virginia. with his brother, Edward. Other extant records also show a George to be living in Dinwiddie Co., Virginia during the second half of the 18th century who we assume is a son of George. We still hope that as more records are transcribed and indexed, we may yet find additional evidence to conclusively place George. In the interim, we want to share the records that have been compiled on the descendants of George Scott Pegram, Jr. since we concur that he is descended from our common ancestor, George Pegram of Williamsburg, Virginia. Birth Since he was not named in his father s will, it is assumed he was born after his father s death in 1726. Source www.patch.net pegram
