Martha Pearce was born in Lelant in 1827.She immigrated to Michigan but her son Fenwick Hawes lived for a time in Butte MT and I have wondered if there was some sort of family connection that brought him there.Martha's parents were John Pearce chr. June 12, 1797 in Lelant and Martha Francis Hawes Pearce chr. February 01, 1795 in Redruth.Other children were Grace Frances Pearce b. abt. 1823, John b. abt. 1823, Elizabeth b. abt. 1829, William b. abt. 1831, Jane b. abt 1832, Richard b. abt. 1834, James b. abt. 1836, and Joseph b. abt. 1836.
