Henry Thurlow Peck
The funeral of Henry Thurlow Peck who died at an early hour on Sunday, July 11, was held at his home in Burlington, Tuesday morning. The Rev. S.H. Barnum of Weybridge, a former pastor of the Congregational church in Cornwall, of which Mr. Peck was a member for many years, officiated, assisted by the Rev. John A. Hamilton, pastor of the Methodist church in Burlington. Interment took place in the family lot in Evergreen cemetery in Cornwall. Mr. Peck, a son of Alanson and Mary Parker Peck, was born in Cornwall April 4, 1841, where he resided, with the exception of a few years in the West, until 1917 when with his family he moved to Bristol and in 1918 moved to Burlington. Mr. Peck was a veteran of the Civil War, having served in Company D of the 14th Vermont regiment, and has been an invalid for many years in consequence thereof, and for a number of years totally blind. Mr. Peck was a most devout Christian and the patience and fortitude with which he bore intense suffering, even to the end was noteworthy. Esther Farmer whom he married Feb. 10, 1871, died Oct. 4, 1919, and also a daughter, Sarah Lucretia, Mar. 23, 1897. Mary, wife of the late James Rider of Bristol, and Miss Georgiana Peck, survive him, also one granddaughter, Miss Alice Rider.
