Looking for my roots stemming from the following...
Death of Mrs. Levi Peck

Essex Junction, March 5. -- Mrs. Levi Peck, age 80 years old, died at her home on Lamoille street Sunday

morning at 2:30 o'clock following a short illness with pneumonia. About three years ago she suffered a

shock, which paralyzed her throat and left her absolutely helpless. At about the same time the sudden

death by accident of her son, Guy A. Peck, affected her so deeply that she never gained, but seemed instead

to grow more and more feeble until pneumonia developed last week. Her daughter, Mrs. Bates and a son,

William Randall together with Mrs. Fannie Clark, who has tenderly cared for her for nearly a year, were with

her during her last days.

Mrs. Peck was born in Vermont, but lived most of her life in Brushton, NY., until seven years ago when she came

with her husband to this place to reside.

Beside her husband, Mrs. Peck is survived by three daughters Mrs. B. L. Orcut, of Dickinson, NY, Mrs. L. A. Bates

of Shelburne, Mrs. G. H. Nelson of Pittsfield, Mass., and a son by a former marriage, William G. Randall of

Brushton, NY., and by eleven grandchildren.

Mrs. Peck was a member of the Christian church of Brushton, NY. She was possesses of a genial disposition

and was a tender wife and mother, a kind neighbor and true Christian. She bore with great fortitude and

patience the suffering and loneliness entailed by her condition.

The funeral was held from her late home this afternoon at 2:30. The Rev. William Millar officiated, assisted by

the Rev. C. S. Quimby. Burial was in the village cemetery.
