Birth: Dec., 1831
New York, USA
Death: Apr. 19, 1923

Sarah was married for 52 years to Marquis Peck, until his death in 1904. They had four children together. In 1914 she married Edward I. Baldwin. She is buried next to Marquis Peck in Pine Plains Cemetery, and the name Baldwin does not appear on the stone. So, her full name when she died was Sarah Elizabeth Fritcher Peck Baldwin, but, following Find A Grave guidelines, she is listed at the top of this memorial just as Sarah Elizabeth Fritcher Baldwin.


The following article appeared in a Syracuse newspaper at the time of Sarah's wedding to Edward Baldwin:

Peck-Baldwin Wedding

Mrs. Sarah Peck is oldest bride of the season.

Fayetteville woman 82 is the bride of Californian, 69.

Lovers for years, couple separated when children in Fayetteville; he went to Los Angeles, but has returned frequently on visits.

Mrs. Sarah Elizabeth Peck aged 82 years is the oldest June bride in Syracuse this year. Mrs. Peck's marriage to Edward Irving Baldwin of Los Angeles, California was solemnized Saturday evening at 8 o'clock by the Rev. Dawley, pastor of the Cent. Baptist Church.

Mr. & Mrs. Baldwin were married Saturday night at the home of the groom's brother A. R. Baldwin. It was a quiet wedding with only a few relatives present. The groom is a resident of Los Angeles where he has a large post card studio. Mrs. Baldwin has a daughter living in Los Angeles and another living in New York. Her son Charles Peck is a resident of Syracuse. Her husband died many years ago as did Mr. Baldwin's wife.

The elderly couple were brought up together in Fayetteville where they were intimate friends. After Mr. Baldwin moved to California and his bride of Saturday came to Syracuse, their paths separated and neither met again until after each had been married and bereaved. In the years since then, Mr. Baldwin has made several trips to Syracuse and Fayetteville revisiting old friends.

The wedding was quiet. A few old friends were there and there were some flowers and music as the stately white haired bride and groom took their places before the minister. After the wedding they went quietly to the brides' home. No mad scramble for a honeymoon trip for them. They preferred to sit by the fire and talk over happy days which have been as well as to replan the rest of the sunny life that is to be when they journey to California to make their home.

Both bride and groom are said to be well to do. Her health remarkably preserved and her age is suspected by few. She looks but little older than the groom though she is his senior by 13 years.

Friends in Syracuse have heard the newly made bride and groom discussing with the interest of a very young honeymoon couple a rose-twined bungalow in California where they are to pass the remainder of their lives. The wedding has been considered by friends in the same light as any wedding, even of young people. No one had any objections. The brides' son attended the wedding.

Both the bride and groom told their children of what they were going to do. The groom has 5 children many of whom live in the west, and 2 grandchildren. The bride also has grandchildren.

The bride is rather short and plump. Noted for the exquisite neatness of her dress and for her ambition. She has lived alone for the last several years in her White St. home and has been frequently the hostess at charming dinner parties. Her devotion to her children's children has been marked.
