Place talk:Peeltown, Kaufman, Texas, United States

I am interested in all things Peeltown. I want to save any and all history before it can no longer be found. If you have anything to share, Please add it or drop me a line.

I would like to hear from anyone who went to school there? What was the name? Who went there? Who as the teacher? Are there any pictures of it?


Lively Cemetery 2 graves [29 August 2013]

Lively ... It is reported to be small, is between Peeltown and Kemp, and there is one cemetery there and it has two graves; (1) Amanda Elizabeth Lively 1830-1896, (2) Rev. Louis P. Lively 1819-1906.

I am Rev. Louis P. Lively's great great granddaughter. I have been searching for his grave, and that of my great great grandmother Amanda Elizabeth Erwin Lively. Is there anything else written on the headstones? Do you have any pictures of the cemetery?

Thanks, Grace--Grace.boerner 21:42, 26 October 2010 (EDT)


Hello. I am researching my family history and am early in the process. I do know my grandfather, Horace Paul Wooley (deceased), was raised in Peeltown. He graduated from Palmer High School in the mid 1930's. His parents were Marion "Bud" and Loretta "Lollie" Wooley. I have a fantastic photo of the Wooley family picking cotton, which I believe was taken in the early 20's. I believe it was taken in the Peeltown/Kaufman County area. I also have a picture of the Wooley family taken at a barn (likely in Peeltown). I'd be glad to share them electronically.

If there is any information folks have about the Peeltown Wooley's, I'd really appreciate learning of it.

Thank you very much,

I have a book that reads PEELTOWN, something, 1957 Kaufman County Texas. Inside it has Community Pasture Contest, stating the officers - Brewer, Hoyle and Jackson. It has records of growth, has pictures and tells some history. Don't know who the people are in the pictures there are no names. I would love to share this with whomever would be interested.--Shellbell50 07:50, 29 August 2013 (EDT)
