Hi Ann, my great great grandmother was a Pelkey, I just found out her father's name from a relative, so I was interested to read your post. My 3rd great grandfather was George Pelkey married to Sarah Tallman, and he was a son of John Pelkey and Josie Wells. I'm currently trying to write a book on all the branches of my family, so I was really interested that a relative of yours has pictures of John Pelkey. Is there any way at all that you might scan them and e-mail them to me? I would be extremely happy if you could. Also, do you know the names of John's parents and his siblings? Your relative wouldn't have pictures of John's children either would they? The only pictures I have any access to are to my great great grandmother who was John's granddaughter. If you wanted scans of those I could get them for you. Not sure how you are related exactly, but my ancestry is as follows: John and Josie to George and Sarah, then to Abigail Pelkey married to Jessie Gifford, Mabel Gifford married to Harold Martin, Eleanor Martin married to Daniel D. Peirce, Daniel M. Peirce married to Deborah Campbell, then to me Daniel R. Peirce. Thanks for any help Ann.
