I am searching for information about George Peck, whom I am told was the founder of the town of Camanche, Iowa in the county of Clinton. I am also interested in information about his children, in particular George W. Peck (married Sarah Addelaide Maynes) and John R. Peck, both of whom moved to California for the gold rush.

Dr. George K. Peck of Lake Pleasant, Hamilton County, New York founded Camanche in 1836. The first building was erected in 1837 by his son Franklin K. Peck. That is all the information I have on George Peck.

I found a George & Sarah Peck in Sonoma, CA.....
Let me know if you want a copy of the 1860 census sheet. Two children....one is Loring, 8 yrs and the other is not named.....a male 8 mo old. Living next door is a John Peck with a Nancy and son Thos M. 14. I have also found further census information if you are interested? It appears that George died and Sarah remarried....
