Governor of Vermont. He was raised in Montpelier, and educated at the Washington County Grammar School and Hinesburgh Academy. He graduated from the University of Vermont and then studied in Quebec, becoming fluent in French. Afterwards, Peck studied law in Hinesburgh with his brother Nahum and at a Montpelier law firm, gaining admission to the bar in 1832. While practicing law Peck lived in Burlington, Montpelier and on a farm in Jericho. He served as a Circuit Judge from 1851 to 1857, and a state Supreme Court Justice from 1860 to 1874. He was elected Governor as a Republican, serving from 1874 to 1876. After leaving office he resumed his law practice, working until he retired to a home in Hinesburgh, where he had moved to be near family members. Governor Peck Road in the towns of Richmond and Jericho is named for him. (bio by: Bill McKern)
