Re: Clinton County, KY, Tax Lists 1837-1860s
My g-g-g-g-grandpa was Thomas J. Pierce, (I believe born in MA, although have also once seen Louisiana), married to Martha Quimby (born KY).The only child I know of is Sarah Quimby Pierce, born Louisville KY on 14 Feb 1836, died Dayton OH 13 May 1914.
I don't currently have census access.When I did, I was unable to find a Thomas, Martha, and Sarah in the 1850 census.The 1840 census, which of course only has heads of household, was certainly not very helpful!
Do you have any idea if your James Pierce had an older sister?
Do you know when YOUR Thomas J. Pierce was born?Do you know where?
How old was this Jefferson Pierce of Clinton County in the 1850 census?
Do you have a family story about a relation to President Franklin Pierce?(We do.)
