I'm looking for further information on or descendants of Frank Pelkey born in 1856 in Vermont, he lived in Seward, Nebraska in 1892. His parents were Jeremiah Pelkey born 1827 in NY and Delphia Draper born about 1836 in MA, they were married in NH in 1855.

Frank's father Jeremiah Pelkey died of consumption in Will County, IL in 1869, family information says Jeremiah had gone there from Vermont after the Civil War because he could no longer take care of himself and needed help. Frank Pelkey's mother re-married and I believe she ended up back in MA.

A book about the Drapers in America indicated that Frank Pelkey was living in Seward, Nebraska at the time the book was written in 1892.

Frank Pelkey's father Jeremiah Pelkey was the brother of my great-great grandfather Edward Pelkey of VT and later Will County, IL.
