Peleg Card born 1685 North Kingstown, Washington, Rhode Island died August 14, 1765. Married first to Rebecca Doliver. Married second to Elizabeth Aylsworth.

The following is from “A Register of the Aylsworth Family Beginning With Arthur, Containing a Regular Descent through the Male Line from Him Down to the Seventh Generation, by Sylvester Aylsworth, of the Fifth Generation Son of William and Catharine. Utica: Bennett, Backus, & Hawley, Franklin Square. 1840.”

ELIZABETH Aylesworth (2) Arthur (1) married (1) …..Dolliver.11 * Of their family history nothing has been discovered. Before 1726 she married (2) Peleg Card. She died probably before his will was made, Sept. 17, 1764. If she was his first wife they had the children named in the list and perhaps others of whom we have no account.” Order of names not known. They lived about half a mile south of the immigrant’s homestead, in Quidnesset.* Peleg was born in 1675 and died in 1765.


i Philip (3) Card. married Catherine Davis December 3, 1741. Daughter was Sarah Card b: ca. 1745, d: June 12, 1819 m: John Olin October 13, 1765.
ii William (3) Card.
iii Mary (3) Card, m….Strate.
iv Ruth (3) Card, m….Brown.
v. Phebe (3) Card, m….Underwood.
vi Elizabeth (3) Card, m….Sreaves
viii James (3) Card.

*Perhaps a son of Joseph Dolliver, Sr., who died in East Greenwich, 1731; will 1729, and who mentions sons, John and William, and daughters, Lydia Parker, Mary Huling, and Abigail Niles. Joseph Dolliver, Jr., will May 1, 1709, North Kingstown, mentions his brother William and sisters, Lydia Parker, Rebecca Card, ye wife of Peleg Card, Sarah Johnson and Mary Dolliver. The Peleg Card here referred to may be he who afterwards married Elizabeth Dolliver.

Joseph Card, son of Peleg of North Kingstown, and Judith Cahoon dau. of Joseph of Warwick, m. March 6, 1735-6. [E.G. Rec.] If this Joseph Card was son of Peleg above, he was probably son by a first marriage.
