Researching one's genealogy is a bit like a treasure hunt. As you learn more and more about your ancestors, surprises keep occuring. I am thankful to all the people who have taken the time to research the past. I aim to contribute as well. I am working on my Peck ancestry which goes back to Joseph and some of his immigrant sons who arrived in 1638. Other names include Vanderwerker, Van Patten, Shoup/Shoop/Schupp, McNeil, Cramer, Paine, McDougall, Lant, Reid, Campbell, Wagman, Foster, Cushman, Grandy, Bartlett, Haverly, Duesler, Snell, Wendell, Glen, Hawley, Harmon, etc. I get great satisfaction in discovering and entering these historical records, before they are lost for good. Most of my entries are in MA, RI, CT and upstate NY where I live. I am a retired HS biology and chem. teacher. I have completed 10 Earthwatch expeditions and travelled to over 60 countries. Climbing mountains is also appealing having been up Kilimanjaro, Whitney, Olympus, Rysy, Ben Nevis, Algonquin, Marcy and others. Genealogy is another fun and productive way to spend my time. |
One of my great joys is to visit villages where my ancestors lived before coming to America. In 2010 I visited Hingham and Beccles, England where the paternal Pecks lived in the 1500 and 1600's. We also visited Petten, Holland for the maternal Van Pattens and Meppel, Holland for the Van Alstynes and Vanderwerkers. In 2012 I visited Scotland for the McNeils and Reids and then the Mozel River Valley in the Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany for the Shoups/Schupps and Mais lines.

It's because of the alternate spelling Nichols. When you search in that cemetery, just enter NIC
|carol white||RE: Jesse Peck|
Thanks. Yes, please transfer him to me and then I can add in the rest of his siblings, children etc. I appreciate it.
|carol white||Jesse Peck|
The Peck family Bible and scrapbook has been passed down to me. Jesse Peck died 29 April 1823 in Rochester NY or a lingering illness. He was an officer in the Rev. War and lost his ship "Juno" to the French during the trade embargoes preceding the War of 1812.
|Donald DeLano||RE: Benjamin Peck|
I have a few more relatives in my database
(88,000+) in case you want to chase Ben Peck
back to the Mayflower.

|Dick Pearson||RE: Peck monument 33324608|
It appears I don't have the original photo that was posted on the Find-a-Grave page. I tried to export the posted image to photoshop, but couldn't do it. If the weather holds I'll try to get over to Pine Grove to shoot the monument again. I'll send the image directly to you if you send me an email address.
|Dick Pearson||RE: Peck monument|
I'm pretty sure I have the original photo in my files, but need some help locating it. If you could give me an approximate date that I submitted the photo that would help me find it.
Also, I believe the stone is located in the Pine Plains Cemetery in Sullivan, NY. Is that correct?
When I find the photo I'll rotate it and send the revision to you via email.
