The Peach Genealogies is the latest series of books written by John H. Peach. His writing about the Peach surname began in 1983, resulting in seven published books. Volume I of the series focused on those who descended from Joseph Peach, the founding father of "The Southern Maryland Branch." The second volume seeks to identify all the known descendants of John and William Peach. While many of this "South Carolina Branch" of Peaches continue to live in the Kershaw County area of this palmetto state, others spread throughout other areas of the south. As a result, sub-branches of these Peaches can be found in Tennessee, Alabama, Virginia, North Carolina, Missouri, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, Colorado, and the rest of the United States.
