Birth: Feb. 14, 1738
Stonington
New London County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Aug. 14, 1813
Bacon Hill
Saratoga County

Revolutionary War Soldier, he married Eunice Copeland b.1742 and fathered several children including Jared, Joseph, Nicholas, Anson and Hiram Palmer. Son of David and Bethiah Holmes Palmer, he was a surveyor who settled on the farm now owned(1878) by George H Peck. This story is expanded in Grace Vanderwerker's 1938 account in "Early Days of Eastern Saratoga County", p.79. She says he was given a farm of any 100 acres he could survey by the Hudson Bay Company which he worked for. The farm was expanded westward to 900 acres and he lived on that farm until his death in 1813. In 1938 it was where Mary J Peck and Anna Peck and her son Frederick Peck lived. The original deed was reportedly still in the Peck family. Presumably the farm was part of what is now Clear Echo and Welcome Stock Peck Dairy farms.
He lived 75 and 1/2 years.
