The Peete Family Tree Site

Updated February 20, 2002

My name is Richard L. Peete. My cousin Mickye (Peete) Strivers and I have been researching our family roots for several years and are always looking for more information to fill in the gaps.
My father is Robert Peete. His father was Adolph Ernest Peete, Jr. The father of Ernest Sr, my grandfather's father, was Sylvester Pitre. Sylvester had 13 children. Sylvester was born in 1847. His wife's name was Fannie Washington. Their children that I have learned of were Eliza, Mary, Hipolite (called Paul), Sylvester, Jr., Eugene, Virginia, Ella, Rosa, Thomas & my great grandfather, Ernest.

So far we have learned of over 335 descentants of Sylvester Pitre. The name was changed to Peete by Sylvester's children. I have not learned why this was done. If you think you might be related to us, please let us know, giving us your family history as far back as you are able to go. We will include this information on the tree and send you a copy.

We have found that we have relatives in Illinois, Arizona, California, Tennessee, Georgia, and Lousiana. Sylvester was originally from Opelousas, Lousiana.
