I would like to report that my wife and I visited Somers, CT in July looking for the gravesite for John and while we had no success while I was reviewing the deed books I noticed that Parker Pease, who married Hannah in 1755 had sold and transferred several pieces of property and the last of which he indicated he was from Wilbraham, MA.
Since this is only 15-20 miles north we dicided to see what we could find there. At the town library we found that Hannah ahd given birth to a second son, Luther, in January of 1773 and the Hannah had dies in February of that same year. Their first child was Parker Jr, born in 1756 only 6 months after their marriage. The Pease family was one of the two founding families of Somers, the other being the Kibbe family and so perhaps Parker was asked to move his family out of town.
The city recorder of deeds office was not open in Wilbraham so I was not able to trace Parkers land transfers but I do know that on the tax roles in 1770 he was listed as owning 5 acres and a cow.
I have been unable to trace the Pease family after Hannah's death. Pehaps another trip to Wilbraham might bear some fruit. There is a history of Somers book down by a local resident who suggests that Parker may not have been of the founding family and that his line is "extinct" but I think this is clearly incorrect as to his heritage and questionable as to the "extinction" remark.
Thought you could use this info.
