He married the former Julia Bates Brown of Tarboro, NC and had two children; Julia Bates Peacock Toone and John "Jack" Gaston Peacock, Jr. He also had 5 grandchildren, Elizabeth Peacock Bossert, John Gaston Peacock III, Julia Peacock Woodard, Julia Bates Toone and Edward Love Toone.

Peacock started in the minors in 1933. After his major league days, he was a player-manager for New Orleans in 1946.

He was at the University of North Carolina at the same time as Nate Andrews.
