I am trying to learn what happened to Barbary Louise BAILEY-BRUCE's son named John L./or F. BRUCE who is listed as the step-son age 12 of her 2nd husband John C. PEARCE on the 1880 Henderson County, TN census.This step-son is shown on census using his step-father's surname PEARCE/PIERCE.
Am trying to learn if he continued to use his step-father's surname or if he used his father's surname of BRUCE.
Would like to make contact with PEARCE/PIERCE descendants to see if they can tell me if he lived or migrated.
Also need to learn if his mother Barbary died between 1884- 1888 since John C. PIERCE has a 2nd wife Paulee in 1900 census stating she has been married 12 years.
Barbary Louise BAILEY is the daughter of Frederick Augustus BAILEY and Mary A. BURNS.
John C. PEARCE/PIERCE is the son of Hiram PEARCE and Phoebe WRIGHT.
