In Reply to: Norman Vincent Peale by A of 285

Hi! I also have many family stories about being related to Norman Vincent Peale and just returned from a family reunion of the Marvin Lord Bishop's, which are related to the Peale's. I am sending a little info I just found and am hoping this will help somewhat in your search. I will continue my search and forward whatever I find in the future. This info is taken from a site I found called Tri County Obits. It gives Norman's fathers and brothers names:
"MAC DOUGALL..AREA NATIVE DIES; DR. PEALE’S KIN" Mrs. Mary MacDougall Peale, 71, a native of Millport and stepmother of famed minister-author Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, died Monday in Poughkeepsie.. Among the survivors is a sister, Mrs. Hazel Elizabeth Robbins of Millport and a brother Earl MacDougall of Odessa. Another stepson, the Rev. Leonard D. Peale, served as pastor at Elmira’s Centenary Methodist Church from 1952 1954. He now is in Brewster. Robert C. Peale of Pawling is another stepson. Their father was Dr. Charles Peale, once superintendent the Hornell District of the Genesee Conference. He died in 1959. Mrs. Peale, an ordained minister, died at Vassar Hospital in Poughkeepsie. She had lived in Pawling the past 11 years and was business manager of the Foundation for Christian Living She had been director of the Potter County Children’s Home and pastor of the Mills Methodist Church at Mills, Pa. Mrs. Peale also was a pastor at Patter Brook Federated Church at Harrison Valley, Pa. Dr. Norman Vincent Peale is best known for his book, "The Power of Positive Thinking." He now resides in Pawling. He and Leonard Peale will assist at funeral services Thursday in Pawling and at graveside services at 2 p.m. Saturday in Millport Cemetery, Millport. Submitted by Walt Sampson."
