Ole Larson's Folks

Born in Luzerne County, PA, this day in 1796*: our third great-grandaunt Mary Myers, daughter of Philip Myers. She married George C Peck, a prominent Methodist minister and a published historian of the Wyoming Valley. Buried at Forty Fort Cemetery. *I am using the birth date from the “Charles Myers Bible” (top photo), rather than the one on the gravestone.
