Excerpt from The Pedens of America: Being a Summary of the Peden, Alexander, Morton, Morrow Reunion 1899, and an Outline History of the Ancestry and Descendants of John Peden and Margaret MCDILL; Scotland, Ireland, America, 1768-1900
All descendants of John Peden and his wife Margaret (Peggy) McDill, who can possibly do so, are requested to join the undersigned in a family reunion at Fairview Presbyterian church, in Greenville County, S. C., on August 15th and 16th, 1899.
From the best information obtainable, the parents of John Peden refugeed from Scotland to the North of Ireland during the time of the religious persecution in the former country. He and his family came to the United States, first landing in Pennsylvania, settling in Bucks and Chester counties; just how long they remained there we cannot say. About the year 1768 he (John) removed to the Spartan District, South Carolina, settling near Nazareth church, in what is now Spartanburg County.
They had ten children. Sons - James, Thomas, William, John, Samuel, Alexander and David. Daughters - Mary, who married James Alexander, Sr.,; Jane, who married - Morton, after whose death she married Samuel Morrow; Elizabeth, who married William Gaston. (The latter left no children.)
As stated above, it is our design to have a reunion of as many of their descendants as possibly can attend at the place and time stated. It is our purpose to erect a monument in Fairview cemetery to the memory of these, our venerated ancestors, John and Margaret Peden.
