Island was actually named for the island off shore, which is a
small, rocky nesting place for birds, adjacent to the coast. Pegs
Rock is named for Peg Gail, a young woman with a three year old
son, who was banished from the community because she had smallpox.
The story goes that she walked as far as the rock, then Poor Peg
and her son drowned.
