Peyton Alexander Southall was married to Miss Clara Hackstaff Crocker, oldest daughter of Capt.

Bright was born on Back River, Elizabeth City county, on 5th January, 1803. His father was named Samuel; his mother was Jane Sinclair Jennings. footnote **: There seems to be some doubt about the date of Elianna's birth. A paper in the handwriting of her father, P. S., states it to be on the 6th of April, and her mother is under the impression that it was on the 20th May, 1811.]
