Recently received this information from Susan Bottom:

"Peckinpaughs, Pickenpaughs, Beckenbaughs, Peckinpahs & Peckenpaughs -
Descendants of Johann Adam & Anna Maria Beckenbach" by Edwin T. & Atha
Peckenpaugh Brace.

As we find more and more people, it becomes clear that the research that was
used to write the book, was in many occasions somewhat lacking in hard
facts. But this is good in a way, as it helps us to get to the truth of the
matter.

pg. 323 (rev'd ed.) publ. 1984.
"George, married 20 Oct 1814, in Breckinridge Co., KY, Sally Cellars
(Sellers?). As in the case of Jacob, who married Elizabeth Bruner, no direct
statement has been found that George was the son of Peter and Barbara
(Ridenour) Peckinpaugh. However, the marriage bond, dated 17 Oct 1814, in
the amount of 50 pounds, was made by Peter Peckinpaugh; and the census
records show him following the same route west taken by others in the family
of Peter and Barbara. No descendant has been found, but it is reasonably
sure that the following returns [are] for Peckinpaw in Vermillion Co.,
Indiana in 1830, and George Peckenpaugh in Mercer Co., Illinois in 1849, are
for the George who married Sallie Sellers. Sally Sellers surely must be
realted to the Sellers family of Harrison Co., Iowa, since they were closely
connected to George's bother, Henry. Perhaps George and Sally went to Iowa
too."
