I am also researching this family, particularly Alice Ann Speakman, B:1844 PA.Alice is age 16 in 1860 with her mother, Sarah, in Chester County, PA. In 1870 and 1880, she is living in Cecil County, MD married to John Pierce, B:1830 DE. Presumably the marriage took place in PA around 1861 as their eldest child was born in PA in 1861/2.
Their children were: William B., B:1861/2 PA Sarah E., B:1863/4 PA Joseph B., B:1865 PA Caroline (Carrie), B:1866 MD Mary E., B:1867/8 MD Anna Elizabeth, B:1870 MD, married Edward S. Noden Serena, B:1874 MD Harada (Lizzie), B:1876 MD, married Mr. Newsome Benjamin, B:1878 MD Laura, B:1879 MD
I can not find Alice Ann Speakman and John Pierce after 1880. Any information on this family is greatly appreciated.
