Cousin Bait: William H Peak and Emily Jane Stone

I'm looking for information on William Peak and Emily Jane Stone as well as their children. My genealogical connection is they are my third great-grandparents through their son William Talbot Peak.

William Talbot Peak moved to Ohio after he married Evaline Townley (of Cincinnati, Hamilton, Ohio) in 1892. The settled in Columbus, Franklin, Ohio. William seems to have lost contact with his parents and siblings.

I have some vital and census information about William and Emily Peak. I would really like to learn more about their lives, which is why I'm casting this fishing line.

Here's what I know:

William H Peak
born abt 1839 in Kentucky
died before 1880

married on 26 Mar 1862 in Anderson County, Kentucky

Emily Jane Stone
born 8 Dec 1836  in Kentucky
died 12 Nov 1913 in Dayton, Campbell, Kentucky

William Peak and Emily Jane Stone had the following children:

William Talbot Peak (19 Apr 1868 - 6 Feb 1931)

Annie M Peak (1873 - bef 1900)

James H Peak (Nov 1874 - )

Again, these folks are my 3rd great grandparents and their children. I would love to know more about their history, and potentially find photos. Perhaps someone will be searching for the Peak ancestors and land on this blog. Perhaps the distant relative will be inspired to connect with me after reading this post.

I do have some information to share about William Talbot Peak's family.

I am throwing this fishing line in the water in hopes of learning more about my heritage and fill in the gaps on my family tree.
