 L. D. Pierce and Jimmie Francis Pierce

From Hansford County History Vol. II 1876 1983

Written By Juanita Pierce

Lorenzo Dowell Pierce Jr., was born in Johnson County, Texas March 16 1895.
His father L.D. Pierce Sr. and his Mother Ora (Finley) Pierce lived along the
Brazos River in a bend in the river called Goatneck. His grandfather
Andrew Jackson Pierce and his grandmother
Nancy (Abercrombie) Pierce came from Rome GA, to Texas.
(Editors Note: LD Pierce (author) states: I have not been able to prove this move
from Rome GA, but am continuing to research this.)

L.D. Sr. lost his leg in an accident with a train while he was riding horseback.
He had a wooden peg leg and was called "Peggy" or "Peg Leg Pierce" because of it.

L.D. Jr. told many tales of swimming in the Brazos River and of the big water
rises in the river.

I have finally located t

 published in the first
edition of the Hansford County History book

allen&mutt.jpg (43216 bytes)
Since I do not have a page yet done for my Uncle Allen Pierce  I am putting this excellent photo of him and Henry "Mutt" Dacus, on my Grandpa LD's pages.  This photo was taken in 1920 and sent to me by Mary Lee Crew, she got it from her mother Susie Pierce Dacus

In 1909  (or 1906) the Pierce family rented a box car for their belongings and came to
the Texas Panhandle. As the train did not come to Hansford, they came in
from Channing in wagons. It took four days to come from Channing to Hansford.
L.D. Sr. was engaged in farming for many years.

Around 1916 L.D. worked on Turkey Track Ranch along with many other
Hanford County boys. Among the many things he did was breaking sod
and working with threshers on a threshing machine. As a Young man,
he and his friend, Jim Compton took a trip to Galveston by train.
They stayed in Childress awhile and picked cotton for traveling money.
Between Wichita Falls and Fort Worth the train derailed. No one was hurt,
but L.D. and Jim had lots of excitement. When they came home, they
came through Dalhart, then to Texhoma, Oklahoma, because the track
did come to Hansford. They hitched a ride with Luken Walker who was
freighting with mules and three wagons hooked together. Luken accidentally
fell on the tongue of the front wagon. That scared the mules and they took
off running. Before the boys could get the wagons stopped, all three wagons
had run over Mr. Walker. He died in Texhoma that night. L.D. and Jim drove
the wagons on home to Hansford.

L.D.'s brothers and sisters were: Clem, Allen, George, Susie Dacus,
Visa Compton, and Sallie Clark.

Jimmie Francis Scott was born in Denton, Texas, January 25, 1905.

She spent most of her life growing up in and around Eric, Oklahoma.
On a visit to her Aunt Mrs. Jim Mayfield, Jimmie met L.D. Pierce. They
were married May 19, 1924, in Eric, Oklahoma. They had four children:
James Lorenzo (J.L.) born 1925; Bobby Jack, born 1930; Peggy June,
born 1932; and one daughter who died, Jaynell, 1927-1928.
Editors Note:  the above marriage info is incorrect.  I have a copy of ther
marriage license and they were married April 17 1924 Wheeler Tx Judge
LD Miller presiding!

For several years, L.D. worked for his cousin, Ed Wilbanks, drilling water wells.
In 1932 while drilling a water well on the Morton Place, there was an accident
that killed Roy Martin who was working with L.D. Roy left two young daughters
Sybil and Sylvia, and a wife, Mareta. L.D. was very sad at his death.

During the Depression, L.D. worked on the WPA building the dam that first
formed Lake Fryer. In the late thirties, he went into business for himself,
putting up windmills and repairing water wells. L.D. died of heart trouble at
the age of 76 in 1971.

Jimmie Francis died in 1946 of heart trouble. She had one brother,
Lymon Hensley, and four sisters: Doris, Iris, Isabell, Dorothy, and Ceretha

 

Short Article Spearman Reporter: 1970;s

LD Pierce in Hospital

L.D. Pierce local windmill repair man, lost his balance and feel down
the basement stairs at his sons home Thursday. the accident broke
part of a veretebra in his neck. Mr Pierce is in Hansford Hospital for treatment.

When he is released he will have to wear a neck brace for some time.

(reality check: in reality my grandfather LD was down the street at
a neighbors (Kathleen ???) Kathleens grand- mother and my grandfather
had a love affair going on, and when grandpa was going over to her house
(alley catting around) and he got too drunk and fell down the stairs and
broke his neck. So much for that romantic liason>
