On the server look in /var/log/auth.log and look at the messages
logged there from the sshd.  Do you see something such as:

  Authentication refused: bad ownership or modes for file /home/pecondon/.ssh/authorized_keys

At the least hopefully there will be some useful message there.

I often will start up a debugging sshd and connect to it so that all of
the messages will be in the foreground.
