Lucy Peck Christy is the daughter of Hiram Peck and Welthy Kilburn Peck. At the age of 17 she was married to Henry Christy, of Castleton, Vt., with whom she lived most happily until his death in 1869 and to whom she bore 7 children, 4 of whom lived to a mature age.
The first few years of their married life were passed in the little village of Parishville, St. Lawrence County, but in 1884 they came to Medina by way of Lake Ontario and the canal, and here they made their home the rest of their days.
She was a Daughter of the Revolution of the 1st generation. Her father, Hiram Peck entered the service of his country in the struggle for independence at the age of 16. Mr. Peck also served his country with the rank of colonel in the war of 1812, and a visit by him to his home during that war, dressed in the striking uniform of the time was one of Mrs. Christy's most vivid childhood recollections, as was the rumble of the cannonading during the battle of Lake Champlain.
Lucy Peck Christy was a faithful member of the Presbyterian Church, and she taught Sunday School there for more than 50 yrs. Interment took place at Boxwood Cemetery, NY.
