Washington PIERCE (PEARCE) was living in White Co TN in 1820 (Census Records) and White Co TN was also home to at least one GOOLSBY/GOOSBY family in 1820.
One of Washington's sons was William Goosby PIERCE (born c1829 in IL - Washington Pierce moved a lot!). Am trying to find the connection between the PIERCEs and GOOSBY/GOOLSBYs. Would appreciate even the smallest possible clues! Thanks for any help, Jo Ann http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~jcat2/http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~jcat2/
