John (2) Sheldon, son of William
Sheldon, settled in Kingston, Rhode Island,
where he died in 1706. He and forty-one
others of Narragansett signed a petition to

the king, July 29, 1679, "to end the difference
about the government thereof which hath been
so fatal to the prosperity of the place, animosities
still arising in people's minds, as they
stand affected to this or that government."
He bought two hundred and thirty acres of
land, October 20, 1683, near Pettasomscott, of
Benjamin Congdon for seven pounds. He was
taxed in 1687. His will was dated August 15,
1704, and proved January 16, 1706. His eldest
son John was executor and residuary legatee.

was Deacon

sometimes said to be father of Sarah Peck who married
Joseph Benton. Sources conflict - some say she was a Peck by marriage though;
her maiden name was WATERS. Others say, his first wife was Martha Peck, his
second Sarah Waters. I have that Martha married John Cornwall. One source says
Paul Peck left 5 pounds to Joseph Benton in his will.

PECK Deacon Paul Peck. immigrant ancestor
of this family, was born, we
are told, in county Essex, England,
in 1608. He came to Boston in 1635 on the
ship "Defence" and remained in Boston and
vicinity until 1636, when he went with Rev.
Thomas Hooker and his party to Hartford
and became one of the founders of that city
and the state of Connecticut. He was a proprietor
of Hartford in 1639 and became a
leading citizen. His home was on what is
now Washington street not far from the state
capitol. He was deacon of the church from
1681 until his death, December 23, 1695. His
will, dated June 25, 1695, was proved January
15, 1695-96. His inventory amounted to five
hundred and thirty-six pounds five shillings.
He bequeathed to his wife Martha; children:
Paul. Joseph. Martha Cornwall, Mary Andrew,
Sarah Clark, Elizabeth How: grandsons:
Paul and Henry Peck; son-in-law, John
Shepherd; granddaughter. Ruth Beach; son-in-law,
John Bouton.

Not listed on the Defence in 20 Jun - 18 Jul 1635 in the Complete Book of Emigrants.
However, Richard Peck, age 33, miller and others are listed.

577 from Cairo Evening Citizen, Friday, 24 Oct 1902:
John A. Sammons received a message from Thebes announcing the death of his stepmother, Mrs. Emily Sammons, last night. She was the widow of George W. Sammons, deceased, and own mother of Joel D. Sammons. She was the daughter of Rev. William Bracken, a well-known Baptist minister. She must have taken sick very suddenly as he was not aware of her illness. She was about 69 years of age.

Family History: New England Families #2 CD 159

GIFFORD William Gifford, the immigrant
ancestor, was born in
England, and appears to have
been for a short time at Stamford, Connecticut,
and about 1647 his name appears in the court
records there. He certainly settled in the
Plymouth colony soon afterward, and in 1650
was a member of the grand inquest at Plymouth.
He continued to reside in Sandwich,
Massachusetts, until his death, with the exception
of five years between 1665 and 1670
when he with George Allen and the sons of
Peter Gaunt, all of Sandwich, together with
others, were first proprietors and settlers of
Monmouth, New Jersey, having purchased the
land of the Indians, and to whom the Monmouth
Patent was granted April 8, 1665. They
were adherents of the Quaker faith, and suffered
severely from persecution and vexatious
arrests and suits in Massachusetts and New
Jersey. Gifford owned land in Massachusetts,
Rhode Island and Connecticut. His Massachusetts
possessions consisted of land in Sandwich,
Falmouth and Dartmouth. He gave by
will to his sons Jonathan and James land at
Falmouth, and deeded to sons Robert and
Christopher lands at Dartmouth, Massachusetts,
both of whom built houses on their property.
Robert continued at Dartmouth, but
Christopher moved to Little Compton, Rhode
Island. Both have descendants in Southern
Massachusetts and Rhode Island. William

probably deeded his Connecticut lands to his
son John, who gave by will 100 acres in Connecticut
to his son Samuel, and 200 acres to his
grandsons. He died April 9, 1687. He married
twice. His second wife was Mary Mills,
whom he married July 16, 1688; she died February
10, 1734. Children of first wife: John,
died 1708; Hananiah, married Elizabeth
(???); William, died 1738; Christopher,
born July, 1658, died November 22, 1748;
Robert, born 1660, died 1730; Patience, died
1673, married Richard Kirby. Children of
second wife: Mary; Jonathan, born May 14,
1684; James, born March 10, 1685-86.

588 Gladys Johnson claims in Gen of Hanks Fam that Charles emmigrated aboard the Welcome along with
William Penn and George Fox. 31 people died on the crossing from small pox; Johnson claims that
brothers John and Gabriel were 2 of the 31. Can find nothing to back up these claims.
