    • Several sources claim that Mercy Peckham was the daughter of William Peckham and Mercy Perry. Their daughter Mercy is said to have been born about 1783. This is believed to be false based on the ages of some of her children including the oldest Stephen. Mercy Peckham would have been too young to have had children during the early 1790s. Also Mercy Peckham, daughter of William and Mercy (Perry) Peckham is said to have married John Bigland Dockery in 1800.
