|I am researching the Piercy,Braswell,Stokes and Yon families.The Piercy family has been provably traced to Jordan Pearcy on the N.C.1830 census.In the house with Jordan is William,Joab, George, Israel and Wesley James.They are probably children of Delila,William or Stephen Pearsey who appear on the N.C.1820 census.My paternal grandparents were Rev. Lorenzo Whitehead Piercy,b.July 11,1863 in Colletsville,Caldwell Co.NC and Mary Leona Braswell,b.May 6,1872,in Caldwell Co.(?) NC.Mary's mother was Winnie Ann Braswell,born,Caldwell Co.,NC,1841. Winnie Ann's parents were Wiley Braswell(1793-1863) and Obedience"Beadie" Barber(1802-1879).Winnie's siblings were,William Huldah(1819),Nancy(1824),Ryan"Rufus"(1828),Myra Elizabeth(1829),James Jackson(1835) and Thomas Nelson(1837).Winnie Ann married Thomas Kincaid after all her children were born.Mary Leona and Lorenzo were married Sept.30,1888 at Harper's Creek,John's River twp,Caldwell Co,NC,by G.D.Sherill,an Adventist Minister, with witnesses James Braswell,Daniel Phillips and Thomas Braswell.My maternal grandparents were John Wiley Stokes,b.Nov.20,1855 in Charleston,SC and Catherine "Calvin" Ann Yon,b.Sept.29,1862 in Aiken Co.SC.I have reached a complete impasse on the Stokes/Yon line.They both died in Millville,Bay Co.Florida,John in 1937 and Catherine in 1944. I will appreciate any assistance and gladly share info.|
