Ron Peo (son of Frank Peo, Sr.)85 was born December 27, 1958 in Rensselaer, Indiana.
Notes for Ron Peo: Ron and Stephanie Peo sent a very nice letter via email to Alice Winterrod on May 18, 2005. They write that there are many things with regard to the Peo family history that have remained a mystery to me as well. The website that you provided answered a lot of my questions. We obviously share the same grandfather. I had no idea that he had children beyond my father and his two siblings, William and Gertrude. My grandfather Herman and his wife, my grandmother, Elizabeth, had passed away before I was born (12/27/1958), so I have no memories associated with them. My mother, of Cherokee Indian descent, Naomi, born 04/13/1928, (maiden name) Bowman, Peo, (remarried to Maurice, died 08/19/2004) Robinson will be able to answer many of the questions that you have. Her contact info: 9059 Heilscher St., Wheatfield, Indiana, 46392. I am the youngest of Frank Peo, Sr.'s eight children. From oldest to youngest, Frank, Jr., Larry (deceased), (Herman) Stewart, Charles, Wayne (deceased), Ralph, Marilyn, and Ron. I never met my Uncle Bill, and he preceded my father in death. I don't know if he had a family or not. I knew my Aunt "Gertie" from childhood. She had lived in Benton Harbor, Michigan for many years. After my parents divorce I had lost all contact with her. She died a few years ago in Tennessee. She had a daughter, Dolores, and I have no idea of her whereabouts.
I was the first in my family to attend college, and I was a student of music education and vocal (opera) performance. I had a career for over twenty years as a professional opera singer, and I lived in Germany for 14 years. I had always assumed that Peo was a German name. My German friends always said that they had never heard the name as being German. There are still some Peo's living in Germany, but I never had any luck contacting them. I had always suspected that the name could be French in origin. I've included the web address below from my singing days. My wife, Stephanie (maiden name) Creech Peo, born 08/26/1967, teaches elementary school music. We have a 1 year old son, Stephen Maurice Peo, born 04/19/2004, who is my second career! I've retired, and I have left the music world behind. I work now for the Home Depot as a Millwork specialist. It keeps me close to home, and I'm able to enjoy watching my son grow as an "older" father. I will try to pass on more information to you as I'm able to piece things together. I will contact my mother about this, and I'll forward her a copy of your letter. Unfortunately she doesn't have web access. She thinks that she's too old for computers!
Thank you again for your letter.
With warm regards,
Ron, Stephanie & Stephen
