I have followed a Pearson line from PA into Stark county, OH. Mathias Pearson and wife both died in Stark co in the 1824-5 range. They were in Osnaburg twp. Severl notices appeared in The Canton Repository regarding settlement of their estate and then settlement of other Pearson estates.
Here' waht I know so far. 1820 there was a David Pierson family in Osnaburg/Perry twp. 1830 census only turns up a Francis and a Thomas Pearson. although, according to the newspapers , a Joseph and a Jonathan should also be there.It appears that Joseph was the adminstrator for Mathias's estate and in some of the documents relating to that settlement are the names, Jonathan and Margaret as well as Joseph Pearson.
Joseph's estateappears to have been settledby Jonathan Pearson and names minor children, Jonathan Jr and Mary Jane.Joseph's wife Sarah had intermarrried with George Morom.
Does any one out there connect to these folks? I could use some help sorting them out.
