Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

There is no middle initial on his marker, only given and surname names.

His wife Mary does not appear in
I photo documented the entire cemetery and found no marker for her.

I have added the suggestions you made. If these memorials are related to you, please request a transfer. My goal is to have all memorials to be with family.

RE: Elijah Peck
Thank you for correcting. I have Pecks ancestors in both Massachusetts and Connecticut (all originating from England). Some of the Connecticut Pecks moved to Massachusetts so there probably is a link.

RE: The Bowdishes
Wasn't me, I just noticed the two cemeteries were one and the same and asked that they be merged and then saw a couple of duplicates. Your's had the best picture, hope you moved it.
