 Grace G Tillinghast [July 1932, Arnold Vol. 8, pp 1-49]:"Peck Cemetery near Arnold's Mills. This is one of the oldest cemeteries I have seen. Graves without a record are marked with a wooden marker. Many old stones are well worth photographing. The epitaphs are seldom duplicated and are unique."
 Charles & Martha Benns [early 1930's Volume I pages 124-132, #111]: "Peck cemetery was given by Ira B Peck, his sister Celinda Bishop, his brothers, William & Joel Peck, and his grandfather Solomon Peck & wife Mercy Peck.
