Note: Information Sources 1. "The O'Harrow Family" by Mary O'Harrow Robinson, June 1984, Page 12, showing the children of "Jacob Pierce and Isabel Lackey (LaQue)." Shown are "twins: Hue and EMILY (MRS. ANDREW)." There is a decided error on this page in that Julias O'Harrow did not marry Isabella C. Pearce, daughter of Jacob & Isabella as noted, but married Isabella Norred, daughter of Preston & Nancy Teague Norred, brother of Preston Byrd Norred who married Jacob & Isabella's third daughter, Mary Ann Pearce. Additionally, she did not list Andrew Jackson Pearce, son of Jacob & Isabella, who would have fallen between the twins Hugh & Emily and Martha Loraine, or as noted on this page "LaRainey (Mrs. McCatherine)." Emily married first Erastus G. Milliken, and after his death married John Marshall Morton. Andrew Jackson Pearce should have been listed as a child of Jacob and Isabella and "LaRainey" was Martha Loraine Pearce/Pierce who married Christopher Columbus McCaghren. 2. 1850 Benton County, Alabama Census Record, the 28th District, November 27, 1850, Dwelling 430, Families 432 & 433. Head of household in Family 432 shown as J.S. Pilkington, age 21, farmer, born in Tennessee; wife M.J. (Matilda Joriah), age 18, born in Tennessee. Family 433 lists I. "Perse" (Isabella Pearce), age 45, born in Tennessee; children E. (Eliza A.), age 20, born in Tennessee; N. (Nancy), age 17, born in Alabama (the remainder of the children all born in Alabama); I. (Isabella C.), age 14; "A" (Virginia Olivia, known as Ollie), age 12; M. (S. Amanda, also known as Mandy), age 10; J. (James R.), age 7 and a twin L (Louisa/Lucy), age 7; H. (Hugh), age 5, and a twin to E. (EMILY), age 5; A.J. (Andrew Jackson), age 4; and M.L. (Martha Loraine), age 10 months. NOTE: Since Family 433, Isabella and children lived in the same dwelling with Family 432, J.S. & M.J. Pilkinton, it is assumed that M.J. (Matilda Joriah) is also a daughter of Isabella A. Lackey Pearce. By this time Jacob A. Pearce, husband of Isabella A. Lackey Pearce, would probably have left Alabama headed for the gold fields in California, and may have died by this time in Varn Buren, Crawford County, Arkansas. 3.1860 Calhoun County, Alabama Census Record, P.O. Wehaga, July 5, 1860, Page 522, Dwelling 671, showing head of household I. "Perse" (Isabella Pearce), age 55, farmer, value of real estate - $1200, value of personal property - $100, born in Tennessee and children, Louisa, age 17; Larence M. (Hugh), age 15; "EMILER" (EMILY), age 15; Andrew J., age 13; and "Louran" (Martha Loraine), age 11, all children having been born in Alabama. 4.Handwritten copy of a letter from James R. Pearce to his mother, Mrs. Isabella Pearce dated January 3, 1862, from Camp Yancy below Mobile, Alabama. Those listed as being addressed in letter: From James R. Pearce to Mother; Andrew; EMILY; Lucy; Lurany; Iby; Shanon; Jacob Pilkinton; Jonny Rhoads. James wrote "Hugh ain't well he hasn't bin able for duty since...." It might be assumed that Hugh is James R. Pearce's brother. 5. Alabama Marriages 1809-1920, William Sanders to Emily T. Pierce, 1 Nov 1866, Sumter County by Judge of Probate. Also: Spouse 1: William Sanders; Spouse 2: Emily T. Pierce; Marriage Date: 01 Nov 1866; Marriage Place: Sumter; Performed By: Judge of Probate; Surety/Perf. Name: Geo. B. Saunders. OSPage: 83. Les Tate who provided this information speculated that the couple married on the trek to Texas when the Pearce family left Calhoun County, Alabama in 1866, arriving at Cleburne, Johnson County, Texas January 1867. He said: "I think they must have married on the way. Gainsville in Sumter County was an important cotton shipping center on the Tombigbee River, which flows to Mobile. If we look on an 1865-1870 map we'll likely see the road to Texas goes through there." "Sumter is on the western edge of Alabama where I-20/I-59 now crosses into MS. This indicates a direct trek from Montgomery AL, through the upper part of Louisiana, and into Texas...Perhaps through Longview, Tyler and Corsicana; then on to Johnson, Ellis and Bosque Counties." 6. 1870 Bosque County, Texas Census, Meridian, July 25, 1870, Dwelling 470, Family 470 shows William Sanders head of household, age 34, day laborer, born in Alabama; wife Emily, age 25, keeps house, born in Alabama; son Columbus, age 1, born in Texas. 7. 1880 Lamar County, Texas Census, shows W.
