HISTORY OF THE TOWN OF NEWBURY
William PEACH, one of the early pioneers in this town, came from Marblehead, Mass., and brought with him his wife and seven children, settling near the center of the town, on Peach brook, where he made a clearing and built for himself and family a log cabin. He carried with him a white willow walking stick, which he thrust into the ground at the corner of the roads near his house, and which has grown into a tree of gigantic proportions. He remained on this farm until the close of his long life, dying at the age of ninety-two years. His children were William, John, Thomas, Twistern B., Betsey, Sally and Amy. John married Jane SMITH, of Scotch descent, and settled in the woods on Jefferson hill, in company with Joshua, Jr., and Noyes BAILEY. They commenced their clearing at the time President Jefferson was inaugurated, and in honor of that event gave his name to the locality, which it still bears. Their nearest neighbor was three miles distant, and their road through the forest was a path marked by blazed trees. Mr. PEACH's first residence was a log cabin, which later gave way to a more commodious and comfortable home, in which he resided until his death, July 3, 1866, aged eighty-eight years. Nine of his children attained maturity. His son John, Jr., married Betsey BAILEY, daughter of Josiah BAILEY, and they resided on road 56. Their only surviving child, Ellen M., married Charles H. GEORGE, and resides with her husband in St. Thomas, Dakota.
