C. Kenneth Pearse was my grandfather. I have seen the genealogy book he wrote, but don't have a copy handy. I'll have to take a look for the names you are discussing. I am obviously named after where my family came from. Coincidentally, I am now married to a woman from Australia. I'll have to look up some Pearses next time we are over visiting her family.
