I've begun a family tree for my husband Denton Langridge and would appreciate any information about the 4 Denton Pearsalls (2 sets of Sr.-Jr. spanning 1811-1971) of Westchester County, N.Y. and their descendents/families. Denton's maternal grandmother is Helen Le Roy Pearsall, who married William Henry Russell Langridge I of Yonkers. Bessie A. Pearsall, unmarried, lived with Helen and Bill Langridge for years in Yonkers, N. Y.
Denton S. Pearsall, Sr.(1811-1879) of West Farms/Morrisania m. Elizabeth Underhill (1815-1889). They both died with West Farms as their home. They had 13 children: Sarah Amelia, Charles Benjamin, Esther E., Mary Louise, Denton S., Jr., George H., Margaret S., Benjamin, Sarah W., Lydia A., Sophia, D'Anjou, and Nora E.
Denton S. Pearsall, Jr. (1837-1901), d. in NYC?) m. Helen Le Roy Mitchell (1848-1910?), whose parents John and Jessie emigrated from Scotland in 1850. I believe that John Mitchell worked as a weaver at West Farms and his daughter Helen Le Roy Mitchell married the owner's son. Bessie A. Pearsall (1877-about 1965?), unmarried, d. Yonkers, N. Y., was one of their 7 children: Denton, Sr., Harry F., Gilbert "Bert" Underhill, Bessie A., Sadie A., Arthur Mitchell, and Nellie L.
Denton Pearsall, Sr. (1871-1950) m. Bertha Duke (1876-1948), and they both died in Mt. Vernon City, N. Y.They had 4 children: Denton, Jr., Helen B., George H., and Harry F.
Denton Pearsall, Jr. (1898-1971), d. at Mt. Vernon, N. Y., m. Regina S. Maley (1899-1988), d. at Mamaroneck, N. Y. Helen Le Roy Pearsall Langridge (1886-1971), d. at Yonkers, N. Y., had 1 sibling: Jane A. Pearsall (b. about 1925-d. ?). Denton Pearsall, Jr., was a mayor of Mt. Vernon, N. Y. and Kingston, N. Y.
