Subject: [PIERCE-L & Variants ] OUR PIERCE PUZZLE SOLVED!!
Date: Sun, 10 Nov 2002 16:04:07 -0500
I have been sitting here for quite a bit with Chuck telling me what to
write, and trying to figure out how do you say "thank you" to someone that
has just handed you the "sun, moon and the stars" and totally made yesterday
and today one of the most thrilling in our lives! There is really no way I
know to properly say "thanks" for the hard work and the mind power .... but
I will give it a shot here.
Thanks to two wonderful people on this list, we now know who our Bartow
Pierce of Georgia's parent's are and who is brother and sister are, and a
whole lot more ..... http://www.ldpierce.com/johnrpierce.html We know all
of this thanks to DAN PIERCE for all of his researching and digging through
heaven only knows how many records and to L.D. (DIAZ) for his continued
support and help over several years and for forwarding my help letter to Dan
and for all of his hard work -- ( the link is this page)....
The background to this is I sent a cryptic message to L. D. back in December
of last year asking him to look through his information and I had found a
record that did pan out and one that did not, and I had a question about the
one that was in another area - L. D. forwarded it onto Dan - and Dan did
ALOT of research and with some information from another researcher that
found Bartow's brother in Lumpkin County, and Dan found next door to them
was Bartow living with his mother and step-father, his father having died
during the Civil War. Dan's BIG DISCOVERY THIS WEEK THAT CLINCHES IT is
that he found a deed in that mentioned where the grandfather gave
land to his daughter in law and her children - and named them. Dan found
part of this back when I was traveling all over the place and my email went
haywire, so I was unaware until he found more this week.
Here's our story:
(But look at the website - it is much more clear than what I am writing below).
Chuck's father was James Richardson Pierce who was married to Jennie Mae
Baxter - James Richardson Pierce's parents were:
Bartow was married to Vina C Walch in Cherokee County, Georgia - Bartow's
parents were (I am loving knowing this...) Thanks to LD we know that ....
Nancy J. and John R.3 Pierce (Andrew Jackson2, Reuben1) was born 1838 in
Lumpkin Co., GA, and died 1863-1864 in R Road Montgomery. He married Nancy
Jane Wimpey.-You can see how they tie into L.D.'s line here ....
http://www.ldpierce.com/johnrpierce.html -- and
http://www.ldpierce.com/andrew.html#one -- <thank you LD!!>... The part I
would never have figured out is that Nancy had remarried to a Millwood - and
they were living next door to Bartow's brother (they being the brother
Archibald and his wife). This certainly opens a whole new can of worms -
because there were the 3 of them Bartow, Archibald and George Ann plus the
half sibling Millwoods, but what a wonderful can of worms to be opened --
We would love to give OUR THE LIST HERO AWARD to -- DAN PIERCE -- a SUPER
HUGE hero's award -- FOR WITHOUT ALL of his hard work and wonderful mind
putting all this together, we might never have known any of this ..... and
The REALLY GREAT NEWS (at least to Chuck) <grin> is that he and L.D. <DIAZ>
are cousins. (I am very thrilled as well, and if you haven't viewed L.D.'s,
Dan's and works - please take a look at L.D.'s site it is absolutely the
greatest). -- http://www.ldpierce.com -- be sure to take a look at the
http://www.ldpierce.com/johnrpierce.html page so you can see how all this
fits together as I probably totally confused everyone with the above.
So folks, you have the greatest researchers here on this list that I think
you can possibly find anywhere!!! The information they have ferretted out
complete with sources to their work is phenomenal. When we started on this
line we did not know Bartow's name at all - not his first name, and is it
turns out it is very difficult because it is listed as Bartow J. H. some
places, J. H. B. in other places and of course the last name is Pierce,
Pearce, Peirce, etc. So this has not been an easy road to follow and
without Dan's work and L.D.'s we would never have put all this together. So
with all that ....
DAN -- YOU ARE DEFINITELY OUR HERO AND
WE WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL TOYOU....
LD - YOU TOO ARE OUR HERO -- I AM AFRAID YOUR WEBSITE IS GOING TO BE
INUNDATED WITH OUR CLAN VYING IN LINE TO SEE IT.
IT'S A GREAT DAY HERE IN ALPHARETTA... THANKS MUCH GUYS -- WE OWE THIS
WONDERFUL DAY WHICH WILL ALWAYS BE FOREMOST IN OUR MINDS TO YOU .....
So, AGAIN .... PLEASE EVERYONE GIVE DAN A SUPER ROUND OF APPLAUSE AND ONE
FOR LD --- YOU GUYS ARE THE GREATEST .... Dan resides in California and
L.D. is back in Texas now.
Dan's website -- http://home.attbi.com/~tworun/famhist/pierce/index.htm is
excellent as well .... link above dead
Dan -- I hope you will post and tell them how your line fits into here -- is
it thru Andrew's wife or am I mistaken?
THANKS TO BOTH OF YOU - Chuck and brenda Pierce Alpharetta GA

New Info 2006 from Dan Pierce
Thanks for the photo. Here
is my website:
I just returned from 5 days in Salt Lake City doing research. Just before I left, I looked at some deed records in Cherokee County, GA. It appears Andrew J. Pierce first bought land there in 1854. He may have last sold land there in 1866, but my notes are unclear. I know he had power of attorney to sell land for G.W. Pierce in 1866 or maybe later. There are also some other deed records for A.J. Pierce and G.W. Pierce.
I only had time to copy a couple of the deed records. One was the earliest one in 1854 -- Book O, Page 277. The other one was very interesting. In 1864, he sold some land to Nancy J. Pierce for $5 -- Book S, Page 106. Here is a portion of it:
"[Jan. 11, 1864] between Andrew J. Pierce... and Nancy J. Pierce and her three children Archibald, Georgeann and John Barto... Witnesseth that the said Andrew J. Pierce for and in consideration of the natural love and affection which he has and bares to his daughter-in-law and three grandchildren which are before written and for and in consideration of the sum of five dollars in hand paid by the said Nancy J. Pierce daughter-in-law and her three children before mentioned... that tract of No. Four hundred and Forty Eight  and half of Lot. No. Four Hundred and Seventeen , the south half of said lot, in the County of Cherokee and State aforesaid and in the Fifteenth District and Second Section, containing Sixty acres more or less..."
The John Barto is the ancestor of Brenda and Chuck Pierce, which I deduced several months ago. Have you been in touch with them about your connection since then. I never got any response from them about it. (Editor Note: Their Email was down Virus) 2012 John Barton was Actually James H Bartow Pierce cant find if h was henry or harrison
Chuck) will have much more
I think Dan Pierce CA sent me the info below regarding
Elizabeth Pierce Price Putnam. It included some tidbits
about John R Pierce wife Jane Wimpey remarrying
and also John H Bartow Pierce Marrying Vina Walch
There were several Price families in Cherokee County
from 1850 thru 1880. However, there are no
Pierce/Pearce families shown on the 1850 or 1870 census
indices of Cherokee County. There also seems to be
one Pence family. At any rate, the only Pierce
marriages in Cherokee County between 1855 and 1884 are
the ones shown below
PUTMAN, David L. PEIRCE, Elizabeth Dec 15, 1859 D 267
PEIRCE, George W. MOSS, Molly Nov 20, 1864 D 273
GRICE, Daniel PIERCE, Georgia A. Nov 28, 1878 E 418
PEACE, J. H. B. WALCH, Vina Dec 14, 1882 E 693
Putman should actually be spelled Putnam.
The following marriage is also the wife of John R.
MILLWOOD, James PRICE (PIERCE) , Nancy Jane Aug 13, 1865 D 231
Your Pierce family seems to be the only one in Cherokee County during that period.
Georgia A. Pierce who married Daniel Grice is the daughter of John R. Pierce and Nancy J. Wimpey.
Also, on the 1850 census of Lumpkin Co., GA, the family
of Andrew and Nancy Pierce includes
