JOHN PEET - October 20, 1859 - DEATH OF JOHN PEET, THE PIONEER

The veteran Pioneer is no more. Being one of the first settlers in this county and a remarkable man in many respects, it is due to his memory and it will be profitable for his neighbors to note briefly his life and labors among us.

He was born in the City of New York, April 4th, 1772. Four years later was taken to Elizabethtown, NJ. Was married to his first wife Sept. 28, 1803, lived with her ten days when she died of yellow fever. Was married to the widow who now survives him on Aug. 2, 1808. Emigrated from Elizabethtown to Potter County and arrived at the place where he died on May 23, 1811.(another source gives date as November 23,1811-Peet,p,5, Coudersport Historical Society) He had two children at that time and seven others were born later. These nine children, the youngest, thirty-six, are all living. Eight of them in this county, and these have forty-three children, thirty-seven of them whom are in this county.
