What We Know About This Family

An Overview of Their Lives

Genealogical literature about both the Peaches and the Coes (Cowes) was helpful in identifying the children of his family. A long genealogical article about the Cowes family can be accessed in the Documents section.The Peaches were early settlers to Marblehead with many carrying the surname such that confusion about parentage is possible. While researching, I noticed that Hannah Peach who married William Hammond has a Find-a-Grave Listing which gives her parentage as William and Sarah Elkins Peach. The same resource gives the same parentage to Sarah Peach Desmore. Our Thomas and Mary Coes (Cowes) have baptism records for daughters Hannah and Sarah, but the possibility exists that they did not marry these husbands. Hannah had a son she named Thomas Peach Hammond, and my genealogical sources identifies both daughters as I have done.

Thomas was one of the offspring of a Peach/Devereux match. His mother had two siblings, John and Hannah Devereux, who were also our direct ancestors. Mary Peach and John Nicholson are our direct ancestors and have their own family group page. The Thomas and Mary Cowes Peach family has a scarcity of records that identified their professions, but Mary and John Nicholson's daughter, Martha Nicholson, our direct ancestor, was the wife and mother of mariners and sea captains.

Proof of Relationship

The vital records, genealogical records, and wills are our best proof of relationship for our direct ancestors in this family.

What Else We Need to Learn

The goal of this project is to trace every line of ancestry to the arrival of its first immigrant to America. The basic information of each couple is considered complete when we know the dates of birth, marriage, and death for both spouses. their parents' names (or whether they were the immigrant), and the child or children in our ancestry line.

The research on this family is basically complete. It is a large family, and it's possible more concrete records may be added at a later time.
