Hi Cheryl, were you ever able to find James and Phoebe Pearsall Wanser's parents? I don't have a clue, since we Long Island Wansors have only been able to get back to the 1780s. I'd suggest trying the films of church records at LDS. If your Wansers were in the Wanser book, maybe James and Phoebe came down from Connecticut. Some of the CT Wansors went west, too. And I think a few returned to Long Island NY; Pearsall is an old NY and NJ name. Good luck in your search.
