Jennifer, George Sr.'s parents were William A. Pearl (b.17 March, 1838 in York Twp.,Morgan County, OH.) and Elizabeth Studer- whose origins I have not yet explored. This William A. Pearl was the son of Lawrence Pearl and Susanna Nichols, of Frederick County, MD. I hope this can help in your family search. I'm not online too often, anymore, but if you need more info, just let me know.
