Search Martin Horton Peck Lot:

Located in the City of Nauvoo, Hancock County, Illinois.

A city lot, # 33, privately owned from 1842 through June of 1848 by Martin Horton Peck, originally from Rehoboth, Bristol, Massachusetts.

Being he was a blacksmith by trade, a smithy shop may have stood here on Warsaw Street, along with his home.

As the conflict escalated in Nauvoo in 1846, the Latter-day Saints were driven out of Illinois. When the Ranck children died, just a day apart from each other, their family had to bury them in the city before vacating.

They did not have a chance to record the deaths and burials until they reached the safety of the Winter Quarters camp on the Missouri River; there, they were finally listed among the dead.
