Thomas Peacock born 1833, Bitton, Gloucestershire, England

+1 vote
Thomas Peacock born 1833, Bitton, Gloucestershire, England, and his brother William Peacock born 1836 sailed to New York in 1855 and became naturalized Americans and lived in Illinois.  I have found marriage and family for William, but have not found anything for Thomas except a death registration in an Old Soldiers home in Chelsea, Massachusetts in 1922. It appears he may have had an alias as Thomas Pierce. Does anyone who is following this line of Peacocks have any information on Thomas.

Thank you for your answer to my question.  Yes, this is the family of William and Thomas, but what I was looking for was what happened to Thomas after he emigrated to the United States.  However, since posting the question I believe that I have found him under his alias name of Thomas Pierce, living in Massachusetts, where I know is where his death is registered.  Have no idea why he has an alias name of Pierce when he is born Peacock.  His son also takes the name of Pierce.  So its a mystery to investigate further.
