I'm not related to Capt. Peck. I'm just interested in local history. I'm trying to compile a book on all of the men who served in the Civil War from Massac Co., or served and moved here after the war. It will include their service and brief bios. for them. Many buried here don't even have headstones. I just hope to make some kind of a permanent record so future generations will know of their ancestors' service and where they are buried.

Capt. Peck was also a Capt. in the Mexican War, and I believe he served from Indiana. I'll have to find my source on this to be sure though. You can e-mail me at (the first letter is a small "L" and not the number one).
