[Note: There is some confusion over the listing of the younger women in this generation. Some genealogies list "Mary Jane" who may well be the same as "Mary Elizabeth" in the next generation under Volney Peel. In addition, Jane is sometimes listed as a daughter of Volney but was in fact his sister.]
