Dorothy Peake, who married John Sanger in Woodstock, Connecticut, in 1742:  who were her parents?

If she was born April 3, 1726, we have Christopher & Rebecca Peak as her parents:

--or-- Joseph and Mary Peak could have been her parents

Christopher Peak apparently lived in the part of the Town of Woodstock that in 1734 became the Town of Union. This emerges from the will made 9 [?] September 1755 by Christopher Peack of the Town of Union, which names his wife Rebecca and, among many others, a daughter Dorothy (unfortunately without indicating a married name). See will at ancestry.com for those with access to ancestry
