      CHAPTER XVII.
      MOORESVILLE TOWNSHIP

      GEORGE P. PEPPER, JR.

      (Mooresville Township.)

      The family of which the subject of this sketch is a representative is one well known to the people of Livingston county, for one or more of its members have been identified with its interests in different capacities since an early period in its history. James S. and Nancy E. Pepper, nee Nave, were the parents of George P., the father being a Virginian by birth and the mother a native of this State. James Pepper died in this county September 27, 1875, but his widow still survives and finds a welcome home with her son, George. Eleven children were born to them, but only five of these are now living: James S., Maud S. and Katie C., at home, and Joseph D., who was married to Miss Annie Immick, daughter of John E. Immick, of Mooresville; he is now located at Sherman, Kan. George P. Pepper was born in Livingston county, January 4, 1852, mid in growing up passed his time in the vicinity of Spring Hill, Jackson township. His career, though perhaps not as long as many others, has been one of thrilling interest. During the war especially he was an active participant in numerous occurrences, though an unwilling one, and was placed in many dangerous places. After the battle of Wilson Creek about 1861, he was hung by one

      Granville Brasfield,

      who thought by this means to induce George to disclose the whereabouts of a friend, William Frith; though only 10 years old he refused to give the desired information and was strung up a second time, with like results. He is familiar with the killing of Dow Kirk and David Curtis by Thos. Jennings mentioned elsewhere and it was he who found the body of William Avery, murdered by Samuel Husher, the particulars of which are well known to him, and he was present at the hanging of Husher. Mr. Pepper after receiving a good education at the Chillicothe High School became located in the mercantile business at Lock Springs, Daviess county, remaining there until the destruction of his establishment by fire November 17, 1884. Another store house which be built at the same place was destroyed by a cyclone: He is now carrying on a mercantile business at a place in Kansas. Mr. Pepper's wife was formerly Miss Emma T. Peery, daughter of James W. Peery, the brother of Capt. Fielding Peery, of Daviess county; her cousin, Stephen Peery, is a prominent attorney of Trenton. Mr. P. and wife have had five children, all of whom are living. He has an enviable reputation throughout the county, and is a genial, whole-souled man whose word is as good as his bond.
