Re: Oliver Hazard Perry Pearson
Sounds like a match, though your Oliver MIGHT be a grandson (could be a very late child). Oliver, Sr.'s father was Nathaniel Plummer Pearson, his mother Jane Shawhan. her father, Robert. Nathaniel Plummer Pearson's parent's; (Our common ancestors) Jesse Pearson and Mehitable Plummer. Jesse's parent's; David Pearson, Jr. and Sarah Danford/th. Mehitable's parents were Nathaniel Plummer and Hannah Walker. I know three more generations back on most of the lines, Hannah Walker being the exception. No one knows her maternal line.
I really do think that you are descended from these people, but only have mention of the Oliver's in Nathaniel Plummer Pearson's war of 1812 pension records. I am descended from a brother of Nathaniel's, Jonathan who m. Margaret Young. Oliver Sr. and Jr. were b. and lived in Allegheny Co., PA, but several of Nathaniels children removed to IN and KY, so even if Oliver Sr. isn't the connector, one of Nathaniels children surely must be. We don't yet know Nathaniel's other children's names, but a daughter m. John Stanger of KY and IN.
