    3. Hi there, I'm thrilled that your newsletter got to me. I have a lost a Pearson from Monroe, S.C. I only have a marriage license between William (Bill) David Pearson, my paternal grandfather. It says he married Mary Ellen Christy (my maternal grandmother) in March 1943 in Washoe Co. (Reno) Nevada. Mary Ellen was three months pregnant with my dad, who was born September 21, 1943. Shortly after marrying, he was shipped out to fight in WWII. He never returned. We don't know anything about our grandpa or his life. Maybe he just didn't return to Mary Ellen because of things we don't know, or don't understand. I think somewhere along the years, grandma Fannie told us he was killed in the war. But that was never proven and the family wasn't interested in trying to find him. Then Bill's blonde headed grandaughter was born and wants to know about grandpa. Any help out there?

    1. PEARSON of Warrington
    2. Nicholas C Jenkins
    3. I'm new to this list and am interested in PEARSON of Warrington. It is the early info I am seeking. Samuel Pearson born circa 1796 died 26/11/1862. His wife Mary born circa 1803 died 2/11/1866. Info from grave stones. A son was called Thomas born Stockton Heath circa 1822 died 22/11/1888. He married Emma Maddock born circa 1830 and died 2/109/1886. Info from census & grave stones. Emma was born in Frodsham. It is believed her mother's maiden name was Dennis. Thomas & Emma had a number of children. One was Samuel who was/is my great grandfather born 11/2/1858 Appleton, died 29/11/1923 Stockton Heath. He married Cicely Burton born 25/10/1868 Pitt Street, Warrington, died 19/12/1924. (I've just noticed that the Pearsons are rather good at dying in November - never noticed before!)

    1. Re: PEARSON-THOMAS-D Digest V02 #3
    2. Hello Bev, I'm sorry to be of no help but I have never found the family of my Sarah Caroline Pearson (aka Carolina Person). She married Joshua Winkler in the 1850s and they moved to Boone, NC (Watauga County). She lived there until her death and is buried there. I think her family had settled in Wilkes County, NC and that's where she met Joshua Winkler. On my grandmother's side, the Rogers family, her grandfather was Henry Pearson of Wilkes County. Some in the family say that Henry and Caroline were related. That's the scanty information I have on my Pearsons. Good luck on your hunt ... Carl winkler

    1. Re: PEARSON-THOMAS-D Digest V02 #3
    2. Do you know if any of your Carolina Pearsons ever migrated down to Georgia? I'm looking for links to my Elizabeth Pearson found on the 1880 Coffee County, GA census. She was listed as the head of household, 38 years old, with three very young daughters,Ila, Georgia, and Angel. Ila is my husband's great-grandmother. Ila told her sons that she was not born in Georgia as the records show, but was really Navajo Indian, born in Gallup, NM. I'm trying to find if there are any records of this or if there may be family members related to Elizabeth Pearson who might have known of an adoption. Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much, Bev ([email protected])

    3. Hi Glen, My grandfather was William Asbury Pearson born 1855, son of William Pearson born abt 1831 in Cabell County, Virginia. This last William was killed in the Civil War. Our family history says that William Pearson (1831) was the son of a Simeon Pearson born about 1782. I am wondering if this Simeon can be either of the Simon's you talk about in your letter. I would love to find more information about my grandfather's people, but I have run into a brick wall. This is why I joined the Pearson list. Sure would appreciate any information you might have. Will gladly share what little info I have.

    3. Glen I could transfer some RTF files or gedcoms to you directly, but I would need your personal email since one cannot send attachments. Be glad to share what I have on you group as well as mine. I think there is some alliance back in Eng. since Isaac Pearson and Jacocks are one county over in SC from mine in the same time frame. I found one of his sons whose wife's husband help originate the Jack Daniels recipe for sipping whiskey. They went from Quakers to Baptist to other religions because there were either 'shunned kicked out or generally characters' to the various religious groups of their time. Sounds like my family. Horse racing and the whisky were I thought pretty cool things.

Lawrence yet may not be the right name for the Spouse of Mary... but same family... They were associated with William Penn and migrated about the same time... anyway... the group that migrated to upstate SC had many numerous offsprings and relatives... Some eventually migrated to the Ohio Valley... and yet some migrated further south into Georgia and Alabama.. Benjamin West, the American Painter is related to the Pa. group... There also was a group that settled in Colonial Coastal North Carolina... Thomas Wheelwright Pearson is representative of that group. Again, no relation to my group as well... or after arrival in the colonies. Where do you hit the wall with your group...who is the earliest???

    3. -----Original Message----- From: Glenn Pearson [mailto:[email protected]] Sent: Tuesday, May 07, 2002 10:58 PM To: '[email protected]' Subject: List Activity Hi All, Reckon it is time to stir this list up some. I 'm Glenn Pearson and Listowner for this List. Several years ago we started this list to explore the Pearson lineage derived from Thomas Pearson and Susannah Blande of Virginia. Our particular interest was its potential connection with the two Simon Pearsons, one of Fairfax County, Va. and the other from Baltimore County Maryland. Both were contemporaries of each other, Simon of Maryland was a generation older. both shared life long friendships with the same prominent Virginia -Maryland families of Preston and Harrison. Once it was believed that they were the same man, but since then, Simon of Maryland has proved to be the older of the two. They are however in all probability closely related. Our line descended from Simon of Maryland via his oldest son Moses Pearson by his last wife, Sarah Thurston Shaw Pearson. Moses and youngest sibling Samuel Pearson migrated to North Carolina circa 1735-1740. Both settled in Craven County, North Carolina, which was later divided into Johnston County, and then Wake County. Moses Pearson left the Johnston County area for the Pee Dee of S.C. circa 1760 . Samuel became a prominent citizen, served as a Captain in the Revolutionary Army and later as a Judge for Wake County. His descendants are quite numerous, some of which are still in the Raleigh area of North Carolina. Moses Pearson (Sr) and oldest son Aaron served in the militia for the Pee Dee-Cheraw (South Carolina) area during the French and Indian War (1760-63). Moses Sr. died in 1763 and named his heirs in his Will which was probated in Colonial Capital of Charleston, S.C. Early Pee Church records and early land deeds show that Aaron, and sisters Sarah Cherry and Ruth Askew with their respective husbands were well established in the area circa 1763-1766. It was not until 1767 that the first mention was in those respective records for Moses Jr, or Captain Moses as we call him. The youngest sister, Comfort Pearson does not migrate to the Pee Dee from North Carolina until circa 1777. Mother Sarah Pearson accompanied her at that time. The remaining sibling, Bradent Pearson has remained a significant mystery. We find revolutionary war records for Brady Pearson from the Pee Dee. There is also a Bently Pearson and sometimes spelled as Fearson listed as well. Both seems to share the same or similar military records and we believe both are the same man. Brady - Bently apparently did not survive the War. He/They were stationed at Charleston at the time of its fall to the British. Aaron Pearson was a substantial land holder in the Pee Dee area of S.C. Moses Jr. served as a Captain in the militia under Frances Marion and was considered a very ardent Whig. After the war he served the Bench of the Court as Judge for Marlboro County until his death in 1800. I am glad to share any and all information with those who can use it.Lets hear from all of you now. Wm. Glenn Pearson Listowner
