I am looking for information about HIRUM PEACOCK and am trying to establish that he is father of Susan Peacock of Saratoga NY.
HIRUMwas born abt 1800 in MA according to probate papers of his father. Census records of his brother list VT as POB.As such, he must have been born in MA and reared in VT.Prior to 1830 he moved to Charlton Saratoga NY.The only mention of him is in the 1830 Saratoga NY census.
1830 census Charlton Saratoga NY 1,u5 (James)1,20to30 (Willis)1,30to40 (Hiram)F 1,u5 (Mary?) [2, 5to10 Charlotte? Susan)1f, 30 to40(the names in parentheses are all speculation)
His younger brother Wills is listed in the 1840 and 1850 Saratoga NY census.Willis moves to WI.I am not sure about his sister Sophia
There are 3 Peacock persons that are unaccounted for in Saratoga.Lucy born 1833 per 1850 census, Charlotte born 1821 per cemetery record, and aJames Peacock born 1835 per the 1855 Tyrone census.
Perhaps Hiram died and they are his children.
It is my belief that Hirum is somehow related to the James/Sarah Pixley Peacock of Greenfield NY and Benjamin Stone Peacock of Addison VT.
I have no source for who might be the father of my Susan Peacock.The only facts are that she was born in VT and married in Charlton NY.Her father was born in MA and her mother born in VT.I have accounted for all the Peacocks in Saratoga Co except for a Hirum Peacock in the 1830 Charlton NY Census.
Hopefully someone can provide me with additional information to prove or disprove my hunch.
