I have my family traced back to Trumbull Co. in the early 1800's. Joseph Pierce/Pearce came to Trumbull with his 8 yr. old son also Joseph about 1809. Joseph grew up to marry Ruth Newcomb about 1820, and they had at least 2 sons, George Washington and John Newcomb Pearce. Ruth died and Joseph married a Suzanna and later a Mary Jane.My Winans line also came from NJ via PA about 1809. I'm not sure if they were together or not. Jacob came with 3 of his sons, James, Jacob and Isaac. James Winans' son Clark married Catherine Shively about 1840. George Washington Pearce married Catherine's sister Elizabeth about 1842. Their father was George Shively from Newton.My Pearce's were settled around Jackson for many years.Does any of these names sound familiar to anyone?I know my branch of both families went west in the mid 1800's to WS, IA, SD, and KS. , but I would like to know more of their family in Ohio.
