Family of Richard [A.] Peters and Suzanna Halsted
Richard [A.] PETERS (possibly the son of Richard PETERS and Jerusha [SUTTON]) was born abt 1773 in Saratoga County, New York. He died 6 March 1853 in Bloomville, New York.

Richard [A.] PETERS married Suzanna HALSTED/HALSTEAD abt 1791.

Suzanna HALSTED (possibly the dau. of James HALSTED and Elizabeth TEAD/TID) was born abt 1772 in New York. She died 17 January 1853 in Bloomville, New York.

Richard [A.] PETERS and Suzanna HALSTED had the following children:

  1. Elizabeth PETERS (abt 1792 - ?)

  3. William PETERS (abt 1795 - abt 1860)

A book privately published around 1900 by William Blakely Peters entitled Peters Lineage of descendents of Richard Peters and Susanna Halsted reaching six generations contains a great deal of information about this family and its descendants, but I haven't verified much the book's information so I am hesitant to just copy everything in it here.

There are family trees for this family and its descendants posted in's Ancestry World Tree database which is accessible without a subscription.

Richard and Susan Peters can be found in the 1850 census for Preble, Cortland, New York.
