Some Short Peterson Ancestral Stories

These were a series of e-mails that I sent to the Winn and :LaVon Peterson descendants on the dates shown. There are some personal asides that I have left in them. In some cases I have left intact the source document with a few editor's notes. Most of these are synopses of several histories that I was able to find. I'm sure there are errors in all of these, just as there are in any histories. I apologize for any inaccuracies and assure the reader that they were purely accidental.
