Thanks for your reply. I don't really have any pertainent info on William T. Pierce yet. If I do, I'll certainly share what I find. As for the Strohl line, I've aquired some photos of the Strohl family graves that are in Nebraska. If there is there any Piatt County info that I can help you with in searching the Strohl/Stout lines, let me know & I'll see what I can do. I know that there are several Stouts buried in the Monticello Cemetery.
