So far, I've been able to verify that my branch of the Pearl family is as follows :
my father , James Cletus Pearl ( bn.Sept.14 1906,El Reno,Indian Territory/OK.); his father , George Sylvester Pearl, Sr.( bn.abt.1872/3,in Junction City,OH.) ; his father, William A. Pearl ( bn. March 17,1838, York Township, Morgan County,OH. ); and then his father, Lawrence Pearl ( bn. Aug. 28.1793,Frederick Co.MD ).
Any further ancestral references, should be considered speculative, at this time.
