"Mr. Pegg followed farming all his life and met with well-earned success in that useful calling. As a neighbor and citizen he was highly esteemed, and during a long and remarkably useful life, he enjoyed, in a full degree, the respect and confidence of all with which he had business or other relations. While not identified with any church or religious organization, he was a firm believer in the morality as taught by the Sacred Scriptures, and his character as a man was ever above reproach, and the integrity of his motives was never known to have been questioned. Originally a Whig, he afterward exercised the elective franchise in behalf of the Republican Party, and while always taking a lively interest in matters political, he never aspired to official position, preferring to give the best energies of his mind to his business and to the proper rearing of his family. Upright in his dealings, he earned reputation of which any man might feel justly proud, and the memory of a life well spent and duties well performed is the most valuable legacy to a grateful posterity."
-- From "Portrait and Biographical Record, Randolph County, Indiana"
