History of Bourbon, Scott, Harrison and Nicholas Counties, Kentucky, ed. by William Henry Perrin, O. L. Baskin & Co., Chicago, 1882. p. 674. [Harrison County] [Cynthiana City and Precinct]

J. W. PECK, banker, P. O. Cynthiana, was born Nov. 7, 1819, in St. Lawrence County, N. Y., and is the son of Hiram and Wealthy (Kilburn) Peck. Mr. Peck came to Cynthiana as a school teacher and subsequently engaged in the dry goods business. Time proved him to be a financier of no mean ability, and in the mercantile and manufacturing business he has been one of Cynthiana's leading spirits. He has engaged in the wholesale and retail grocery trade, distilled for six years, and run a woolen factory and flouring mill, all of which have been conducive to the general welfare of the public, in the disbursement of money to employees. Retiring from active business, Mr. Peck is enjoying the fruits of his industry and economy.
