H. M. Peacock, farmer in Lake County, is a brother of Mr. C. M. Peacock and was born in Obion County October 18, 1846; was raised on the farm and when young he had but few opportunities of securing an education; but has, by studying in later years acquired a great deal of general information.

December 30, 1875, he married Miss Georgia Watson, daughter of Robert Watson. Mrs. Peacock was born in Madison County, Tennessee June 27, 1854. Six children blessed this union, four boys and two girls; only three are now living: William H., born July 17, 1879, Martha A., born February 20, 1880; Hattie M., born March 21, 1882. Mr. and Mrs. Peacock belong to the Methodist Church South. He is a democrat in politics and a member of the Masonic fraternity. He owns now 275 acres of good land, and though comparatively a young man is known all over the county as a successful farmer and a good business man, and holds the confidence of all who know him.
