The Peckham name goes back to England where it has a most Honorable history.
Among the most notable in the US was Sir John Peckham who assisted William Penn with his settlement of Penns Woods or Pennsylvania.
My line starts with Rhoda D. Peckham who married Michael McDermott. They are buried in Albany, Wisconsin.
Rhoda's Father was Able Peckham who married Adah Brown who, according to family tradition, ancestor started Brown University.
I have both ancestors and descendants of Rhoda and woulk be glad to share with anyone who is willing to share with me.
