I have been researching the family of Spencer Peugh 1753-1815 for 25 years or so. I look at every family with the spelling PEUGH as well as Pugh and Pew and even a few other variations. Most of the PEUGH families end up being connected to Spencer. Some of his descendants chose to use Pugh though. I believe him to be connected also to the line of Henry Pugh, from the Lewis and Ann Pugh lines from Richmond, VA late 1600's through 1700's.
I am so happy to see this board using the PEUGH spelling and hope others researching this name will contribute and share. I have the lines of Spencer's children Ann (Nancy ) who married John Hann and went to Morgan Co., OH about 1800, also David who married first Lydia botts and then Sally Caseldine, (this is my line) Samuel who married Elizabeth Botts and went to KY, IN and IL. Levi who married Jane Wadkins and went to IN where he died, she went with her children to MO, IA and OR. Sarah married Wadkins also but I haven't found her as yet. William was the last son, from Spencer's second wife Mary Hopewell. He went to Morgan Co., OH also and married twice having 16 children by two wives. I would love to share information with anyone.

Thank you very much Darline, By the way do you know were Irena died? I am trying to hunt down adeath certificate on her.
Thank you again for all your help,
I don't know if it is the same William E. Pugh but my husbands gggrandfather was a William E. Pugh born around 1805. I found him on the 1850 census in Mathews County, VA He was married to an Adelaide J Hudgins and had five children Elizabeth b: ABT 1842, Mary Elizabeth b:1843 Julia J. b:ABT 1845 William Joseph b: 1849 and John James b: 1852. John James was my husbands ggrandfather. He was married to Mollie Layton(Layden) and the had at least 4 children John James Jr. b:1888, Ida May b: Unknown, Alberta b: ABT 1912. If anyone can give me any further information it would be very helpful. If it the right William E. Pugh I don't before coming to Mathews County in 1850.
I don't have any more information on William E. other than his birthdate being 5/25/1805 in VA. They were around Loudoun County, most children were born there. Mary Hopewell, mother of William E. and John Pugh died in Loudoun County, VA 12/23/1816. Do you know where William was married?
His wife Adelaide was born here in Mathews County, Virginia. They got land from her father in 1850. I don't know where they were before showing up on the 1850 census. I think the were married sometime around the late 1830.
