Hello, Nancy: As I understand it, all the Peckhams of Newport RI were descended from my ancestor, John Peckham, lst wife Mary Clarke, sister of
Dr. John Clarke ( who delivered several of Anne Hutchinson's children,) and
who were part of the Hutchinson Party, leaving Puritan oversight in Mass.
approx. l639-40, for Aquidneck, (later to become Rhode Island.) In my searching for (among others) my great-great grandfather, Isaac Peckhham, I have learned some of what you may be searching. . .IF it is the same "Isaac!"
and have a few details that may help to determine this. The name :Sisson"
appeared somewhere quite a ways back in research. . but I did not retain any
of it, at the time. Perhaps there is some connection here, and since I have
collected a fair amount on the Peckhams of Newport, Little Compton, and
later (shortly after the end of the Revolutionary Way) a large group of them
appearing in Newburg,NY) I do know that my Isaac ancestor was born in N.Y.
Renssalaer County, (Pittstown) July 2l, l804 and a few other interesting facts.
If any of this fits the information that you have, please let me know, and we
we can compare notes. Cheers! Audrey Peckham Hall-Mendoza
