A veteran of the Revolutionary War, David Peck was born in "Peckstown" (present day East Orange, NJ), the eldest son of Joseph and Jemima(nee Lindsley) Peck. Married to the former Mary Williams, he fought for American independence as a man in his late 40's and early 50's, and died "in his 69th year" thirteen years after the war's end. A widower at the time of his death, he had been predeceased by his wife in 1790. His name is listed on the D.A.R. Monument just outside the front entrance of the First Presbyterian Church of Orange, NJ. This memorial, which consists of a bronze plaque affixed to a boulder, was erected in 1931 to honor the Revolutionary War veterans buried in the churchyard.
David Peck's grave, located on the western side of the church, is marked by a damaged but otherwise handsome brown sandstone stele. It features a soul effigy of the portrait type in its tympanum, and appears to have been cut by William Grant, a Boston carver who moved to New York and then to New Jersey, where he remained actice from the 1740's to the 1790's.
