The William PEYTON who died 1792, in Bourbon County, Kentucky, was from the Gloucester County, Virginia line of PEYTONS. William was documented by his grandson in Reverend Hayden's "Virginia Genealogies" of 1891 ("PEYTON, of England and Virginia", ISBN 1438282710, pages 470, 471), who gave his date and place of death. William PEYTON is a proven DAR patriot, having served in the Gloucester County, Virginia militia during the American Revolution. His grandson said he "carried in his body to his grave a British bullet." Those who can prove descent from him qualify for membership in both Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and Sons of the American Revolution (SAR).
