Does anyone have information on the CSA record of E. J. Pearsal.I believe he was Edward James Pearsall, the son of one Charlotte Nunnery of Cumberland County, NC, who married William Pearsall of Duplin County, NC. Charlotte died February 10, 1836 in Duplin County.
The Pontotoc County, Mississippi marriages reflect the marriage of one E. J. Pearsall and Kisiah E. Gillian on July 16, 1851.
Seeking information from CSA record, Mississippi county of orgin,1850/60 census info. Were there any descendants from the marriage in Pontotoc County, MS?I also found a land entry for one Edward J. Pearsall, patent of 82.4 acres in Arkansas on 2 July 1860. Steve Pearsall
