Tina, I would like to share data or notes on any part of my research re: Pearls or Browns, etc.
I have 2 Joel Pearl(e)'s in my data.
Joel Pearl(e) born 11/1843 son of Nudigate Pearl and Louisa Ann Eoff. I have a census record of him in Texas. Also that he was married to a Frances Helen Stateler, but the census record shows his wife as Rebecca. His sister was Sarah Catherine Pearl, who married William S. Brown. This is the line I am most interested in proving.
The second Joel Pearl was born about 1807, the brother of Nudigate O Pearl, which should make him the Uncle of the other Joel. His Father was Henry T Pearl and his Mother Mary Owsley.
I have some information on siblings and etc. of both Joel's.
I have a death cert. on Sarah Catherine Pearl and on William S. Brown. I have a lot of information on their descendants.
