Looking for death and burial info on William Mallory b c 1807 New Preston who married Susan Peck in 1833.

(7) Susan Peck (twin) c 1805 Bethany Ct (Litchfield South Farms at time of marriage) = 5 Aug 1833 by Rev Darius O Griswold William Mallory 1807 of New Preston Litchfield, page 26 Barbour collection 1780-1850 Watertown Ct) d 1 Apr 1874 Norfolk CT

Found William died 1 Apr 1874 in Norfolk but no burial info and can't find Susan after 1870 census.

Son William Jr b 1837 married in 1859 Ellen Morris in Norfolk.

Son Freeman born 2 May 1848 does not appear on census.
Daughter Emma born 6 Dec 1852 appears only on 1860 census.

Son William Jr lived in North Canaan but can't find death and burial info for he or his wife Ellen Morris b 1842.

Susan Peck was twin with Sydney who was a member of the Ct legislature at one time. Sydney died in 1891 and is buried Morris Burying Ground.

Sydney and Susan's grandmother, Susannah (Pond) Mallory Camp bp 17 Sep 1757 Second Church Milford d 1812 buried Morris Burying Ground with second husband Ezra Camp and daughters with second husand, Julia Ann and Susann.

Sydney and susan's mother Mary Polly Mallory (aka Camp) married Roger Peck. She died in Bethany 1815. (Haven't found her grave.)

Roger b 1776 married a second time but I haven't found name of second wife or where he died or is buried.

William and Susan were on 1870 census Norfolk with nearest post office Goshen.


(8) William Mallory jr 1837 d ? = 19 feb 1859 Norfolk Litchfield Ct Ellen Morris Jan 1842 living with daughter Grace H Mallory Otis 1910 New haven Ct (Edwin Morris 1800 Connecticut of Goshen Litchfield = Minevra 1803 CT )

Section 13: My Mothers Brother Roger Peck
       “The second of my grandfather Peck’s children that lived was Roger, who only only had his father’s name, but learned his trade, and when his father gave up his trade, Roger went on with it at the old stand.
       He married Miss Polly Camp, but I do not know when. So far as I remember she was quite a pleasant woman, and my mother seemed to think a good deal of her. She was the mother of one son, and one daughter, who were twins, born I think in 1805 as I think they were about a year younger than myself. Aunt Polly died of consumption, about 1817 (23 Oct 1815 BT2 consumptions age 36,) when her children were about twelve years old, I think. The boy Sidney was brought up after that by his mother’s father (Ezra Camp), who lived in that part of Litchfield in Litchfield County Conn., know then, as South Farms Parish, but is now known as Morris. He married (Catharine Catlin,) and always staid (stayed) there, was I believe a farmer and server several terms in the State Legislature. His wife was a cousin of the late Samuel Stoddard, Esq. Of this township.
       Miss Juliet E. Peck of New Haven, in a letter in the spring (1887) wrote, “Mr. Sidney Peck of Litchfield died a number of years ago, and I think his sons are dead without heir, (Sydney died in 1891) but I may be mistaken about all.” The foregoing is all I know about Sidney Peck.

Susan Peck:

As to my uncle’s daughter, Susan, I hardly know where she was brought up. I think she was sometimes in one place, and sometimes another place, and after she had got to be somewhat past her teens I think she went into the neighborhood where her brother lived, and got married, there, and if she, and her husband agreed, well I think it was about the first person she ever did agree with very long.
       Uncle Roger, after his wives death, became quite despondent and gloomy, and took to using strong drink too freely, and although he married again, I think his wife was no help to him, unless her drinking the liquor, prevented him from getting too much. I believe that I never called on him but once, after his second marriage, and only for a short time then, and I do not know that my father or mother ever visited him after that marriage. I do not know how long he lived or when he died.” Edwin Perkins Jr 1888

Edwin Perkins was daughter of Betsey Peck.
