Peters' Residence - Bloomville, NY
Photos generously contributed by Carolyn McPherson 2003
Former home of John Peters and later William B. Peters
Home of John Peters & Jane (Blakely)
After John's death in 1896, his son William Blakely Peters, wife Hannah (Rich) Peters, their daughter Sarah (Peters) Hickok, and son-in-law William Hendry Hickok, moved to this house from their earlier residence, which was several hundred feet to the west on State Route 10.
Note the interesting second-story window, which helped Carolyn identify the house when she photographed the town of Bloomville in May of 2007.
Home at the time William & Hannah resided here.

Prior to his death in 1896, John Peters and his wife Jane (Blakely) resided here. Sometime after, his son William Blakely Peters with his wife Hannah (Rich), lived here.

Weather and neglect has not been kind to the vacant structure, but memories of its earlier years carry special meaning to the Peters descendants - none of which are residents of Bloomville.
