I know this is many years later but was wondering if you
have written your book on the service men from Massac Co.
Capt Geo Washington Peck was my gg-grandfather. His daughter
Elizabeth Peck was my g-grandmother. Many of my ancestors
were from Massac Co. Many lived there all of their lives. (Lytton,Leech,Peck,Cooper,Murrie,Perrin)
I visited Capt. Peck's grave several years ago. He was buried on his home place and my Aunt told me he was buried
in a bronze casket. She said he died of wounds from the war
but I don't think she knew anymore about when or where.
Anyway I don't know if you are still working on your book
but I am trying to get all my info on these lines organized and was hoping you could help me add to it. I still do not
know the identity of Capt. Pecks parents. Any help you can
give would be greatly appreciated.
