Peter lived above the present day Roscoe Goode home before moving across Low Gap to near Shlburn Brooks home. Peter was an overly large man about 6'8", he was also a very gruff man. When he was saved and needed to be Baptised, there wasnt enough water in Saulsville to baptise him, so the Preacher went in search of a water hole deep enough, Finally settled on doing the deed in Ravencliffe, upon entering the water and walking from side to side and around trying to find a deep enough spot, someon hollered from the shore to "turn his head upstream and let the water just run over him. (Shorty Shumate related this tale.)
