I am desperate! Have not been able to find a thing on my great grandfather, Daniel Webster PECK other that he was born in Jackson, Jackson Co, Ohio about 1834 and married Amanda J. GILLESPIE there. Don't know what his mother's name was or if he had any brothers or sisters. The only other information that I have is his father's name was Peter, who had changed the last name from BECK to PECK at sometime. Daniel and Amanda had three children there; Claude Emerson, Mary Elizabeth and James Henry. Even some little tidbit to tell me where to go from here would be a big help.
