Dear Larry
I am still around and still doing research on the Peck line. I have not been active lately because I have had 2 surgeries in the past 6 months but ready to start again. I just checked my notes and have some already printed out by you. Seems you have done your homework. Is there anything new about the Peck line that you have learned. I think my George Washington Peck was the last of the Pecks born from the first wife of Jacob. Does that sound right to you. I thought it odd they just up and left Virginia and scattered like they did. Seems they were not really a close family. My George didn't seem to have any of his family with him when he ended up in Massac, Illinois. I was really glad that you discovered that he came from Virginia because I was stumped until you came along. Do you know anymore about them or maybe which country they originated from. Or do you have any pictures of Jacob. Thanks for your time and any info you can give me.
