from http://genforum.com/peck/messages/657.html:...."looking for more info about Samuel Peck. He was an American and died from diphtheria. His wife, Catherine Ashe was born Feb 10, 1865 in East Minard, Kerry, Ireland; died May 12, 1928 San Diego, CA. She was the daughter of John Gregory Ashe and Catherine Mary Prendiville. Samuel died when son Gregory was an infant, and Catherine took son back to the family farm in Ireland. They came back when Gregory was about 10 and stayed.

Samuel and Catherine's son, Gregory Peck, was born about 1875 in Rochester, NY, and died abt 1964 in San Diego, CA. He was a pharmacist in San Diego and La Jolla."

Allegedly Samuel died by drowning in the Erie Canal, and then Ms. Ashe moved away and began the rest of her life. There was a man from Hollywood who cam to the Rochester library some years ago searching all this about Gregory the actor's ancestry, and that man was convinced that he had found the actual lineage.
