My 8th great grandmother, Mary Sarah Sperry Peck was born on 14 March 1649 or 1650 in New Haven, CT. She was the daughter of Richard and Dennise (Goodyear) Sperry. She married Benjamin Peck on 29 March 1670 in New Haven.  She joined the New Haven First Church in August 1687.

She died sometime in 1730 or later and was buried in Center Church on the Green Churchyard, New Haven, CT.
