George doesn't have a death record in Massac Co. (or anywhere else). He does have a probate file here though. You can obtain a copy by writing to the Massac County Clerk's office in Metropolis.

Also, a copy of Martha Mitchell's obit is in the MCGS Obituary book 4A. There website has a book list, or if you're just needing the one obit then the library may look it up for you.

A pension file that I read (I forget whose file it was) said that Capt. Peck was on his way home on sick furlough when he died. He had already crossed the river and was in Illinois at his time of death.

I know of one relative of Martha Mitchell who lives in Massac Co., but she doesn't use a computer. Is there something specific I could ask her for you?
