Rehoboth Historical Cemetery Number 13

The Peck Burial Yard is located near what is now the seventh hole of the Sun Valley Golf Course off Summer Street. I visited this graveyard with Mr. David Peck of New Jersey. Among others, there are 24 Pecks buried in this yard. David is a descendent of Joseph Peck, one of the earliest settlers of Rehoboth. 

The photo above shows our footprints headed back towards the Pro-shop which is not yet visible.

The photo above is Mr. Peck collecting a cherished photograph for his records after he reached his destination, 

The first-hand mid-winter trek to this burial yard proved to be quite a challenge given there were several inches of ice-covered snow. I suggest future visitors come during the golfing season.

Two of the images above show the gravestone of Capt. Samuel Peck. The image to the left is that stone. It is clickable and is the stone as designed and documented in "A Genealogical History of  the Descendants of Joseph Peck" p.34. It was carved & signed by George Allen. The stone is described in Association for Graveyard Studies' Guide #1: Narragansett Bay Area Graveyards, p. 13.
