Guess I had forgotten our earlier communication. My information about Priscilla Peacock and Godfrey's marriage came originally from "Birds of A Feather: Origins of the Southern Peacocks" by John J, Pierce, c1984 John J. Pierce and Peacock Family Association of the South.

Then Victor Edwards looked up and sent me me the following:

"In a book title 'Kinsfolk of Johnston Co. Abstracts of Deed 1759-1825' by Elizabeth E. Ross there is this entry:

16 Feb. 1811 Elizabeth Peacock Senr, Jesse Peacock, Daniel Peacock, Elizabeth Peacock Jr, Selah Holmes & Benj Holmes, Priscilla Stansill, Godfrey Stansill, Zeplha Peacock, & Wiley Peacock of Wayne County sell to John Peacock of Johnston County for 5 sh. each... 110 ac. on run of Watery Branch, adj. John Fellows, Simon Pearce & Ephriam Pearce...
Wit: Fredrick Holmes, Samuel Copeland Feb. Ct. 1813"

Since a Priscilla was one of Elizabeth and Jesse (then deceased) Peacock's daughters, seems pretty clear that the Priscilla Stansill here is the former Priscilla Peacock.

This is all I have on the son William - his wife and kids, with their dates of birth:
