Reverend Marcus Reuben Peck 1846-1876 was a young and very well educated minister of Brookfield, Orange County, Vermont. He was an alumni of 2 major Ivy League Colleges; Dartmouth College in Hanover, Grafton County, New Hampshire and Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. Sadly, as you will see in genealogy research below, he died at age 30. He married Helen Nelson Peck in Madison, Illinois in 1875, and they left together for missionary work in India. They returned home, with him ill, to his parents home in Brookfield, Vermont. He died there, soon after, in August, 1876 at the age of 30. They were married for a year. We have looked extensively for Helen Nelson Peck, and not been able to find her after his death. Did she return to Illinois? Remarry? We do not know. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here.
