Notes for Francis PEAKE

Biographical Sketch (2002):
2251, p. 112. "Francis Peake, it is almost certain, was the 12th child of Thomas and Lettice (Moseley) Peake. He was born about 1780 in that part of Virginia which later became Washington County, Pennsylvania. When he was around 12 years of age his family migrated 'down the river' to the area around present Cincinnati, living first in Hamilton (later Butler) County, NW Territory (Ohio), then about 1795 moving to Campbell County, Kentucky. On 19 January 1804 he married, in Campbell County, Eupha (Ufa, Euphey) Glore, daughter of Adam Glore and Margaret Chrisler. Shortly afterward, on 9 February 1804, Francis gave bond for his sister Eleanor's marriage to Soloman Wayman in Campbell County. By 1812 Francis and his family were in Clermont County, Ohio and were enumerated there in the 1820 census."

1804 Marriage:2334 Marriage of Francis Peek to Euphey Glore on 17 January 1804 in Campbell County, Kentucky. Laurence Sandford was bondsman.

Birth of son St. Clair between 1804-1805: St. Clair enumerated La Porte County, Indiana2217 as a male age 30 to 40 in the 1840 census. This researcher assumes, therefore, that St. Clair's birth occurred between the January 1804 marriage of Francis Peak2334 and Euphey Glore and the birth in 1810 of Ufa Peak, who married in John Frame1720 in November 1827. Based on St. Clair's marriage1496 to Lucinda Case in 1833, this researcher likewise assumes his birth took place in late 1804 or early 1805.

Death of wife Ufa Glore before 1810:431,1503,438, v. 1, p. 78. Ufa Peake, daughter of Francis Peake and a subsequent wife, was born between 1810 in Ohio (based on 1850 and 1860 census enumeration) and 1815 (based on tombstone in Eight Square Cemetery, Pine Township, Porter County, Indiana). Presumably, Ufa Glore Peak was deceased by the time of Ufa Peake's birth.

1810 U.S. Census: Francis Peake not located. Other reseachers have indicated Francis' name appears in civil records in Clermont County, Ohio in 1812. The 1810 census of that area does not exist. A Francis Peake was enumerated in Nelson County, Kentucky, but is assumed to be part of another Peake family who settled in that area. Francis Peake's family settled in Campbell and Boone counties in Kentucky.

1835 Adam Glore Will:2474, p. 476. On 14 January 1835, Adam Glore wrote a will in Campbell County, Kentucky which bequeathed goods to "my grandson St. Clair Peak as the sole heir of my daughter Ufa Peak deceased formerly Ufa Glore." From this, it is concluded that Ufa died prior to 14 January 1835.

1835 Land Transfer:1179, v. 1, p. 140.
