The Peace and Winston

Dr. Joseph S. Rowland, Jr. of Tuscaloosa, AL, was the author of two excellent books on the Peace and Winston lines: Southern Peace Families and Winstons of North Carolina and Their Descendants. We’re sorry to report that Joe passed away in 2005.  We've attempted to capture his research accurately however any errors found among this Peace and Winston information are owed us. Let us know and we'll correct them. 

In Calhoun County Alabama, a special thanks goes to Pete and Ruth Sexton of Weaver for all the work they have done to identify and document the descendants of John Easter Peace.  Without their efforts much of this would not be possible.
    Here are surnames allied with our Peace and Winston family.  Have fun!
