    U.S., Sons of the American Revolution Membership Applications, 1889-1970 about John Pearce
    Name: John Pearce
    SAR Membership: 38773
    Birth Date: 1758
    Death Date: 1832
    Death Place: Franklin, North Carolina
    Spouse:
    Rebecca Allen
    Children:
    Archibald Washington Pearce

    ============================

    Records indicate that he died in 1831 and that he was buried at Red Bud but the existing chruch cemetery reveals no grave marker.

    It is assumed that he was buried in the family cemetery near the present crossroad. However, only native stone markers, without inscription, remain and court records are too vague to make an actual determination of his final resting place.

    John Pearce's marriage bond has is wife named Patricia Allen (crossed out). All other records name her Rebecca.

    --------------------------------------------
    May 2008 Update:

    Joe Pearce in Louisburg believes that John Pearce and his wife Rebecca Allen are buired in the Leonard Family Cemetery. There are many unmarked graves within the cemetery so it is difficult to know who is burried there. A Lenoard who lives near the cemetery, however, had a hand drawn map that was provided to him by another family member years ago.

    On this hand drawn map is a Becky Leonard and an unmarked grave, which appear next to graves of Bennett Leonard and his wife Nancy Pearce. Joe Pearce, a local historian an geneologist believes the unmarked grave on the map belongs to Rebecca's husband John Pearce, though we may never know.
