       William and Belle Peck came from Lee County, Iowa in 1880. They lived on a farm in Pilot Grove Township, Montgomery County until 1895, when they bought the farm 1 1/2 miles east of Elliott. They were the parents of nine children: Mrs. Pearl England, Mrs. Cora Marshall, Mrs. Hattie Thomas, William, Elmer, Hermon, Mattie, Lily and Clarence.

     Hermon was born on this farm, and has lived there all his life. He now owns the farm. Hermon and Hazel have a daughter living in Elliott, and a son Lloyd lives on the place. They have five grandsons, Robert, William, Russell and David Peck, Lloyd Smith; and a great-grandson Michael Smith.
