Hello.I am curious about the younger brother of the three famous PEABODY sisters(children of Nathaniel and Elizabeth (PALMER) PEABODY).
So far, I have only seen that he lived a good part of his adult life in Concord, MA, and lived until after Age 80.
.. And, I've been reading some of the postings in the archives about the three PEABODY sisters, and learned about the book written about them, and looked at the web site about them.
The "History of Billerica" only mentions that their father, Nathaniel PEABODY, M.D., practiced his profession in Billerica for a few years.Yet the web site I just looked at mentioned he was a Dentist.Considering it was the year, ~1805, he must have been one of the first Dentists in Billerica.
Also, were the three PEABODY sisters and their brother, Nathaniel, the only children of Nathaniel and Elizabeth who lived to adulthood, or who lived long enough to marry and have children?(The "History of Billerica" mentions two more children who died in the 1830's, and a younger child where nothing further is mentioned.)
Also, I'm curious if anyone could offer the "family line" for .. Dr. Nathaniel PEABODY, b1774 Topsfield, MA.
(I am not related to this family;I just have an interest in the early history of Billerica, MA.)
(Note:Billerica will be celebrating it's 350th anniversary next year, 2005, and I'm sure the "committees" would be interested in learning about all famous persons associated with the history of Billerica.)
