Maureen--

Thanks for responding to my post.  Glad to have gotten in touch with you &, through you, your husband.   I have had contact with second cousins in Ireland who are grandsons of Thomas James Peoples & William John Peoples.  Have also been in contact with a second cousin here in the States whose grandfather was Issac Peoples.

Would like to learn what information you have & share what I've been able to accumulate.  As suggested by RootsChat, perhaps you could sent me your email address via a PM & we can start exchanging information.   I'm not sure if I have the requisite number of postings to access a PM, but I can provide more information about my family in several additional posts to work around this obstacle.

Bob

Maureen and Bob,

Delighted to read your messages.  As we are related I would like to communicate with you both by private message.

Bob, I think you have to have 3 posts before you can receive one.

William--

Thanks for the response.  This makes 3 posts for me so I look forward to your PM as well as one from Maureen.

To whom in the John Peoples family are you related?

Attached is picture of George Peoples & my father, Arthur Peoples, taken in the backyard of their home in Medford, Massachusetts, before he married my mother in 1938.

I think I am also  connected to the Peoples family of Ballyrattan, although I am unsure of the details, I recently came into possession of a large case of old photos that belonged to a Great Aunt, Jessie Williams (b.1914) born in Ballyrattan, her parents were Lewis Williams (b. 1872) and Sarah Ann Baird (b.1878), I know her grandmother was an Annie Peoples, I also know that many of her relatives emigrated to Boston MA., including uncles and at least 2 sisters.

Amongst the photos is a the photo attached of an uncle  George Peoples, Moville, unsure of the connection, as I have no other Peoples (so far) in my family tree

Glad to make your acquaintance!

Its possible we are related.  My great grandfather, John Peoples, who lived his entire life in Ballyrattan, had an older sister, Anne, born 8/18/1845, presumably in Ballyrattan.  Unfortunately, we don't know anything else about her at this point.  My great grandfather & his older brother & oldest sister married Bairds so it is possible (likely?) Anne also married a Baird.  George Peoples, my grandfather & the oldest in his family, was born 5/11/1872 in Ballyrattan & could have been Sarah Ann Baird's cousin.  He traveled to the U.S. in September 1896 with a cousin, William Baird, to join a Baird uncle living in Boston.

Do you have any idea when the attached picture of your great aunt's uncle, George Peoples, from Moville was taken?  There was a grocer named George Peoples living on Main Street in Moville according to the 1911 Census of Ireland.  He reported he was 58 years old & he & his 66y/o wife, Mary, were Methodists.

Does any of this information ring a bell?  If you can provide any more information, we can get a better fix.  It would be great if we could fill out another branch of the Peoples Family Tree & document how you fit into it.

If you make 2 more posts on RootsChat I'll be able to send a Personal Message to you & we can establish direct communication.

Regards,

Bob

Hello Bob, still in the early stages of this part of my research, but almost sure that we are talking about the same family just unsure how it all fits together yet. I have Annie Peoples (b.1845) daughter of George Peoples who married Francis Williams (b.1838) on the 14 August 1866 my G G Grandfather. They had 5 children amongst them Lewis Williams (b.1872) who married a Sarah Baird (b.1878)

Jesse Williams my Great Aunt was their daughter, it was only when sorting through a case of old photos that she left that I came across these names. All the above mentioned people seemed to have lived in Ballyrattan, there are several studio portraits (not yet scanned ) which were taken in Boston, amongst them a Sarah, the seem to be mentions also of Cambridge MA and Somerville MA

Not sure how this fits still trying to pursue my Baird leads also, I was aware of the George Peoples in the Census (Grocer) just not sure if  this is the same person and how is my Great Aunts uncle.

Just to clear things up with my George Peoples, the George Peoples found in the 1911 Census would appear to be correct, I found a marriage record 9th March 1880, Moville Presbyterian Church, which records the marriage. Looks like George was a brother of John and Annie, and rather than an Uncle he would have been a Great Uncle of my Grandmother.

The record which I have included  shows him as farming in Ballyrattan in 1880 and his father is recorded as being George Peoples (Farmer)
