Frederick Peters, Clark Mills, 1912

Frederick Peters, born 1850, Nottingham, England, son of George Peters and Eliza Webster, is said to have come to USA about 1887 or 1888. His father and the rest of the family came here to Oneida Co. in 1883 and settled in Clinton. A descendant says she had found him in a boarding house in the Town of Kirkland in the Census of 1900 or 1910.

I do know that his father's obit stated he lived in Clark Mills, Town of Kirkland, at the time of George's death, in Clinton, in October, 1912.

There is a Frederick Peters buried at Sunset Hill Cemetery in Clinton, according to the interment book of the cemetery, who died Feb. 14, 1919, but, without a stone. I surmise this is our Fred, but there is no identifying info with the entry.

Fred's wife, Eliza Tomlinson, died before Fred left England. His youngest son, Samuel George Peters came here with him, but went back to England after about 5 years here and the rest of his children stayed in England except for a Charles Peters who was a "drifter" (words from a descendant) who lived in Montana until late in life when he moved to his daughter's home in Shelton, Wa. where he died in 1941.

The other children were Mary, William and Francis (Male).

If anyone can help with this Frederick Peters, I would certainly appreciate it.
