Meet Darius Peck and Hannah Warner from Norwich, CT
I began my blog Dec. 3, 2013 writing about 3rd Great Grandfather Bester B. Peck. Today I’d like to introduce Bester’s Grandfather and my 5th Great Grandfather Darius Peck.
5th Great Grandfather was born March 14, 1749/50 in Norwich, New London Co., Connecticut. He was the third child born to Jonathan Peck and Bethia Bingham. Darius’ family settled in Franklin, a section of Norwich originally known as West Farms. The Peck’s were members of the Congregational Church in Franklin and the Norwich First Congregational Church.
Darius wed Hannah Warner Nov. 5, 1772 at the Congregational Church in Scotland, Connecticut. Scotland is a town in Windham Co., Connecticut. 5th Great Grandmother Hannah was born in Windham Nov. 23, 1751 to Dr. Timothy Warner and Irena Ripley. Hannah and Darius' marriage was recorded in both Windham and Norwich town records:

Extract from page 498
Jan. 30, 1774 Darius and Hannah promised to follow the beliefs of the Norwich First Congregation Church.
They became the parents of seven children. My ancestor, Bradford, was born Nov. 5, 1773 followed by Darius in 1775, John in 1778 and Joseph in 1782. Bethia and Henry were baptized 1788. Warner was born Sept. 10, 1789. Six days after his birth Great Grandmother died.
Darius remarried four years later to Mary Frances on Dec. 14, 1793 in Franklin. Anna, Elisha and Lucy joined the Peck siblings in 1794, 1796 and 1799.
April 13, 1804 Great Grandfather passed. Darius rests beside Hannah in the Franklin Congregational Church Plains Cemetery.
