Re: PECKHAM IN OK/KS

In Reply to: Re: PECKHAM IN OK/KS by Charles Wesley Peckham of 684

I know that one of the Peckhams was married to an Indian Princess of the Peoria tribe. The only definate information I have is that Lewis Peckham was the father of Thomas Peckham (born in Kansas). Also, Lewis Peckhams father was supposedly an Indian Chief (?). Some of the information I have doesn't make sense. I cannot seem to figure out where the name Peckham came from (it is not an Indian name). The name I have for Lewis's father is Charlie Chief of the Wea Tribe. But that would not be his true name. Charlie was a common name/title for Indians I think. And I don't know how accurate this info is. Do you know anything more about Lewis and Thomas? Unfortunately I do not have any more definate info than what I have told you. Maybe more info on your Thomas and Lewis will help me. Thank you for your response!! Let me know!!
