Some of the information I have on the Pierce family comes from the LDS church ancestral file. I have been able to verify a good portion of the data by my own research. My Pierce branch originates in Virginia and works their way into Indiana around the middle 1800's. The oldest great-grandfather I’ve been able to locate, Josiah Puckett Pierce (1779 – 1856), is in the 1850 Lawrence County, Indiana census.

Thanks to Pierce cousin, Vicki Eggers Enfield of Indiana – I have been able to fill in a lot of holes on the Pierce line.

Newton Pierce

(Son of Henry Toller and Margaret Lovall Pierce)

Newton and Charlotte (Waggoner) Pierce and family arrived in 1880 at his parents' Henry and Margaret Pierce[15], 11 miles SW of Minneapolis, by covered wagon in company with his brother-in-law, John Chancy family.  His children: Mary E.; Jonathan; Wm. Henry (Cora Bremmerman); Letty; Levina; Josiah; Phebe; Rhese (Chas. Eberly); Emmasia (Alta Smith); Epsa Rebeka; John Pereman (Bertha Baker); Asa Wilber; Thomas Edwin (Anna Lauretta Cummings).  Thomas Edwin and Anna Lauretta's children:  August (Lola Schott); Ruth (Geo. Kaull); Anna (Ramond Schott).  The small farm where the Pierce family moved in 1883 had a dugout with one large room.  A curtain was hung across to make a semi-private sleeping room and a place where members could change clothes.  There was a loft where the older children slept, with 2 beds and a ladder for ascending to the loft.  Every 6 weeks, except in bitter winter weather, everything was removed from the home and walls were white washed.  They took what precaution possible in that day against disease & germs.  Milk was a luxury and J. J. Pierce had one cow that furnished milk for their family and several less fortunate neighbors.  Mrs. Pierce planted a garden and it was shared with all comers and little put away in cans and dried to feed the family in their first winter in Ottawa County.  Newton had two brothers in the county: Jonathan J. (Elizabeth ______) and Pereman.

Murder Committed by Samuel Pierce

(great-grandson of Josiah Puckett Pierce)


An extensive article, titled  "Trapping the Pious Butcher", found in DETECTIVE FICTION written by Seymour E. Francis, relates a story of the infamous actions of one Pierce descendant (Samuel). Samuel committed a violent murder, in Lawrence County, IN, and ended up confessing to the crime when he was confronted with a lie detector test - fear of the "devil's machine" forced the truth from his lying lips.  Sam was sentenced to prison for his gruesome crime, but because of a terminal illness, he was released and allowed to go home, where he died November 8, 1946.



November 14, 1995

The following is text from DETECTIVE FICTION titled Trapping the

Pious Butcher, date unknown, but probably 1939 or 1940, written by

Seymour E. Francis.

Earl Roach's slayer lied from one side of his mouth

and quoted the Bible from the other-until crazy

with fear of the "Devil's Machine"

grooved his tongue on dead center


"Why didn't you call us sooner?" Deputy Sheriff Lester Hayes of Lawrence County, Indiana asked the question gently of Mrs. Earl Roach.


"I thought Earl had gone down to his brother's," Mrs. Roach told him. Her eyes were red-rimed and her hands twisted nervously in her lap.


The two were talking in the lamp-lit front room of the modest Roach home some seven miles northwest of Bedford, Indiana where Hayes had been called by William Haupt late on February 13, 1939.


"Earl went over to the other place yesterday morning to sow some clover seed," Mrs. Roach continued. "He usually worked around the place on Sundays. He expected to be gone all day, so I fixed up some sandwiches for him to eat at noon.


"I didn't worry much when he didn't show up last night, because I thought he might have got a ride to Odon to see his brother and would come home on the morning train. But when he didn't show up this morning I began to wonder if something was wrong; and when he didn't appear all day I thought I better call you. It isn't like Earl to stay away like this'"


She turned toward the window and strained her eyes into the darkness, which covered the countryside like a blanket, as though she could make her husband materialize from the shadows.


"Did be plan to do anything else over there?" Hayes asked.


"Yes. He didn't think sowing the seed would take all day, so he planned to cut some brush and look after the fences. But nothing dangerous."


It seemed she had read the deputy's mind for be mused: "There's a chance he cut his foot, hurt himself some other way, and needs help."


He glanced at Haupt who had offered his assistance.


"William, we better start hunting. Round up some of the neighbors; tell 'em to bring lights and we'll trace his tracks."


The posse was assembled quickly and had little trouble following Roach's tracks to the road. But there the footsteps had turned toward the field a mile away and were lost in the soggy lane.


A check of the nearby WPA project, where Roach worked during the week, revealed nothing, and the men turned toward the tract Roach had planned. to sow in clover. Once there, they spread out in a straight line with ten or twelve feet separating each man. Slowly the line marched across the field, making an especially close search along the fence. Their light cast long legged nervous shadows across the uneven ground. But the search was futile and Hayes was frankly worried as he called Haupt to his side.


"Looks like something Billy,"


Haupt nodded grimly. "I'm afraid so Lester. If he'd been here we'd have found him.


"It' too late to do much more hunting now," Hayes said, "and its pretty cold."


He pulled his watch from his pocket and inspected it under the powerful beam from his flashlight.


"It's almost one-thirty. We'll call it off, go back to Roach's house and start again in the morning, on the way we'll check the neighbors to see if they have heard anything."


Haupt relayed the instructions to the posse and the men started down the muddy lane toward Roach's home, stopping at the darkened farmhouse of Sam Pierce on the way back to ask if Pierce had seen the missing farmer. Pierce had property adjoining-that of Roach and would have been the lost likely person to have seen him.


The deputy got no answer to his hail and stepped through the gate to mount the porch. He heard activity in the house and called again-to be answered this time by a voice from the inside:


'What d'ya want?"


"This is Lester Hayes, the deputy. Have you seen Earl Roach the last day or so?"


There was a rattled interruption as the door was unlocked, and Sam's boy, Ray, his hair disheveled and his clothes evidently pulled on hastily, stepped onto the porch.


"Roach? No, I haven't seen him for two or three weeks."


"Your did seen him?"


"No. Leastways he didn't mention it. Dad's asleep now and I don't want to wake him up.


"Will you ask him in the morning? Earl hasn't been home since Sunday morning and here it is early Tuesday."


The posse straggled off down the path, with the barking of Dewey Poore's terrier adding to the undercurrent of worry. Poore quieted the dog with a word.


Like Ray Pierce, none of the rest of the neighbors had seen Roach. It was two o,clock before Hayes and Haupt returned to the farmer's home. Mrs. Roach was still awake. Tbe three children had been in bed for hours by now, and she had been keeping a lonely vigil in the front room.


Her face dropped as the two men entered without her husband, and tears welled to the surface.


"No luck," Hayes answered the unspoken question in her eyes. Then as the two men rubbed their heads to warm them, he added, "I'll call Earl's brother at Odon."


But Earl had not been near Odon during the weekend. The deputy already had ruled out voluntary disappearance, for the 41 year old farmer's reputation was good. He had worked in one of the numerous limestone quarries that scar the hills around Bedford, but had lost his job with the depression. Then he went on WPA, and, in addition, operated two tracts of land totaling 150 acres.


Tired, discouraged and much worried, Hayes and Haupt returned to their homes for a few hours sleep before starting the hunt again.


With morning there was plenty of help. The 117 men who worked with Roach on the WPA project dropped their tools to join the search, and thirty other residents of the neighborhood joined the crowd as Hayes outlined the instructions.


"We'll center first along this road up to the clover field-it was so dark last night we could have missed him. We'll make a long line and advance together. Go slow and give the ditches and gullies a thorough search. If anyone finds anything, yell."


The search bore fruit almost immediately. A shout went up from the farthest end of the line. Hayes hurried to the spot.


"There be is!" The posseman pointed ahead. And, as Hayes looked be knew the riddle was greater than before.

Roach's body was lying under a pile of brush across which lay a six foot sapling.


Hayes forced himself through the undergrowth, and his eyes widened in horror, as he saw two deep gashes on Roach's throat.


"Murder!" he muttered. He Struggled back to the posse, warned the men not to disturb anything, and dashed to a nearby farm where a rural phone line connected to Bedford.


"It's murder alright," he told Sheriff Lincoln Dunbar. "You'd better hurry out here-and bring Doc Wynne with you.


Dr. Roland E. Wynne, coroner of Lawrence County, was deeply interested in scientific investigation. He used every modern method to learn the truth of various cases on which he was called, and had been instrumental in solving several mysteries in the county.


Roach's body was almost invisible from the path. Hayes inspected the site thoughtfully, then called Haupt.


"Isn't this about the place where Dewey Poore's dog went on that barkin' spree?"


Haupt estimated the distance from the Pierce home and nodded. "Looks like we were within ten feet of finding

him and got beat by the dark." he said ruefully.


"It's funny Roach should have died here, because it's along here that that fence line runs that he and Sam argued about."


Hayes asked quickly: "Bad argument?"


"It had been going on for several months," Haupt said, 'but I don't think it was bad enough to kill anyone about."


Dunbar and Wynne arrived at the site as Hayes was making a minute search of the area, Some 500 feet down the lane was a heavily stuffed sack of clover seed, with an empty, blood stained sack nearby.’ The ground showed evidence of a heavy struggle.


A great pool of blood had coagulated on the ground and a thin trickle had stained leaves from that point to where the body had been hidden. The killer had attempted to cover the track with other leaves, but the attempt had been casual at best.


A few feet from the pool of blood was a four-foot poplar club, an inch and a half in diameter. It, too, was bloodstained and one end was imprinted with a hand. Roach's cap, blood flecked, and a flat file, which had been his, were close by.


But it was from Roach's body that the officers learned the real savagery of the killer. Even Dr. Wynne, hardened to sudden death by long years of practice, shuddered as he inspected it.


Arteries on both sides of the throat had been severed and blood had poured from the deep gashes.


"Just like you'd slaughter a hog," Wynne exclaimed. 'This man didn't have a chance.


He called Dunbar's attention to the victims skull.


"He was beaten unmercifully," he said pointing to the split scalp "and then when he wouldn't die, the killer slit his throat and watched him bleed to death before dragging him here.


Be inspected the wounds more carefully, and added: "The knife was dull too. It wouldn't cut the first time on the left side when it struck that main muscle and the killer had to slash him again, It's the most vicious thing I've ever seen."


"How long do you figure he's been dead, Doc?" Dunbar asked.


The doctor paused a moment, then "About forty-eight hours. Probably killed sometime Sunday morning, Looks to he like he was ambushed."


He inspected Roach's pockets. "Here's the lunch he was going to eat."


Dunbar showed the hand print on the poplar club, and said: "This may help."


Wynne agreed. "Those fingerprints aren't going to be much help, but the hand may be. Looks as though part of a finger was missing."


"What do you suggest," the sheriff asked. "Questioning the neighbors seems to be about the best idea. There's Sam Pierce and his son, Ray, on the next farm; they may have seen or heard something. And Sam's brother owns this place where we found the body."


"Get 'em all into town for the inquest and autopsy," Wynne ordered. "The Pierce's, Mrs. Roach, the deputies and the fellows who found the body. I'11 have an autopsy made at once. We stand a better chance of solving this if we work fast while it's hot."


As the sheriff moved away, Dr, Wynne ordered photographs of the body, the bloodstained ground and leaves. The sheriff collected the bloody club, sack of seed and file as evidence.


Sheriff Dunbar found Pierce cutting brush in a field three quarters of a mile from home and encountered Ray on them muddy lane which passed the thicket where Roach's body bad been found.


Sam was sixty-nine, tall, stooped and angular. He was trustee at the Mount Carmel Church near where be lived, and led services when the ??????? was present. He quoted long passages of scripture and knew where to find justification in the Bible for everything he did.


He loved to sing and was particularly fond of hymns. He was born within a short distance of the farm, had grown to manhood, married and sired thirteen children there, and had been away from the area only once or twice in his life.


He was silent on the way to the house and offered no objections when the sheriff, as a precautionary measure, asked if he might look around the place.


His search uncovered a ten-gauge shotgun and two pairs of bloody overalls, one of which was heavily saturated. So far as the sheriff could tell by superfluous examination, the gun hadn't been fired for some time. But the blood on the overalls was comparatively recent.


Sam's gray-haired, stocky wife was quick to explain:- "Ray slaughtered a hog last week." And then reported that he had dehorned a calf while wearing the second pair.


Dunbar, versed in farm operation knew the stories were logical. And too, they could be merely an excuse. Was the blood really that of a hog or was it that of Earl Roach? Thoughtfully, be rolled up the garments together to send to the State Police Laboratory in Indianapolis for analysis.


As Dunbar and the Pierces drove into Bedford, the sheriffs questioning added no light to the mystery. Ray said he had risen early Sunday morning, fed the stock and finished his chores and returned to the house about nine- o'clock.


His father confirmed the story and declared that he himself had slept late that day.


"You and Roach weren't very friendly, were you?" Dunbar asked Sam.


"Not very," the sunken-cheeked farmer admitted readily. "We'd had some trouble over that road between his land and mine, but it wasn't killin' trouble sheriff."


Once in Bedford, Wynne, Hayes, and Prosecutor David F. Long joined the questioning while two other doctors made an autopsy and prepared their report for the inquest. While the two Pierces were repeating their assertions that they had not seen Roach on Sunday, the autopsy revealed that he had been shot-probably before he was clubbed

and slashed.


"Don't say anything about this now," Wynne cautioned. "I'm going to use it at the inquest."


"Here's something else you light use," Dunbar said. "There's been trouble between Sam and Roach. I've checked my records, and it was only two or three weeks ago that Roach came to me and asked me to settle a long time dispute he's been having with Pierce over a fence line. And it was about eighteen months ago, Roach told me, that he and Sam bad a terrific fight. Roach says he took a gun away from Sam."


"That fence dispute got pretty bitter," Hayes said. "Sam swore out a peace warrant against Roach, but lost the case and it cost him $7.50 in court costs. That made him mad, and then they'd had some trouble over some trees Roach felled that dropped across Pierce's fence.


"He may say something at the inquest," Wynne said, "and we'll plant two or three ideas with him. He's superstitious and this scientific investigation may convince him he right as well confess because we know all about it. That is, if be really did it."


Ray preceded his father on the stand at the inquest. He proved an unwilling witness as the coroner skillfully led him into relating circumstances of the weekend.


"Did you tell your father that night of the search, what the posse wanted?'


"No, he was in bed that night. I told him the first thing this morning."


"Who do you think killed Roach?"


Ray shifted nervously, "I can't say."


"If you killed him, would you say so?"


Ray hesitated a moment, then: "Yes. But I'm innocent. And I'm not going to say anything until I see a lawyer."


Wynne ignored his comment.


"Did you fire a gun Sunday or hear one?"




"When was the last tile you fired a gun?"


"It's been some time ago."


"Ray," the coroner leaned forward to emphasize his words. "I've got my suspicions about who killed roach and I'm going to get to the bottom of this thing if it's the last thing I do. If you're innocent, tell us the truth about this affair and what you think. I'11 help you if you're really innocent."


"I am innocent," Ray replied fiercely, "And you can't do a thing to me."


"I can test your hands for nitrate residue," the coroner intoned him bluntly. Roach was shot before be was stabbed and I can find out whether you fired a gun."


"I don't think the test will do you much good," Ray said slowly. "I fired a revolver last week to kill a hog."


The coroner looked at him silently, then ordered, "Put him back in jail. Maybe a little more time will help his memory."


Ray stepped down to be replaced by his father, who proved to be a garrulous, wandering witness. He went into great detail of the argument he had with Roach over the moving of a fence line to build a road and declared at one time that Roach had threatened to kill him.


Wynne listened patiently as the old man ran on, then began interposing questions.


"When did you shoot that gun last? That gun the sheriff found out there at your place?"


The farmer figured to himself and said: "I haven't shot it since last rabbit season. That'd be the middle of last month."


Wynne let the answer go without pressing the witness, and demanded: "Let me see your hands.

Puzzled, Sam spread his hands before him and the coroner saw that the left index finger had one joint missing.  Was that the hand that crashed the heavy club against Roach's skull?


The coroner shifted his attack. Pointing to a scratch on the farmer's chin, he asked: "Where did you get that?"


Pierce lifted his band to feel the spot. "Well, I was working in the grape arbor this morning and may have got it then."


"It looks older to than that to me." Wynne commented. "Sure you didn't get it in the underbrush Sunday morning?"


The farmer looked up startled. "No."


"When did you hear about Roach being dead?"


"This morning when the sheriff came after me."


"You didn't hear Hayes yelling last night?"


"No, me and my wife was in bed."


"Didn't Ray tell you Roach was missing?"


"No. He didn't say anything about it. I'm pretty nervous and my wife is too, and if my son had told me it might have made me nervous. Say doc, what d'ya do if you're awfully nervous? I've bought a lot of medicine by mail and even went to that divine healer up in Martinsville, but I can't get no relief."


"I'd have to examine you, Pierce. But a divine healer won't help you."


"Yes he would. The Book says 'Ye that----"


"Let's get back to this," Wynne interrupted. "If you killed Roach, would you say so?"


"Why yes. I wouldn't want to lie. The Bible says---"


Wynne cut him short again. "What did you do Sunday morning?"


"Well, now, let's see. I stayed in bed late. My boy got up about eight o'clock and had breakfast and milked.


He went over to the other place til almost nine. I was home when he came back. I saw the clock and he was back before ten o'clock."


"What happened at ten o'clock?"


"I guess I was listening to the radio."


"What station were you listening to?"


"I don't know. We turned it on to get the worship service."


"Did you hear a gun Sunday?"


"No sir. They used a knife on Roach didn't they?"


"Yes, and it was pretty dull, too. It slipped out of Roach's neck before the vein was cut."


Sam shook his head in wonder.


"And," Wynne continued, "Roach's skull was broken in twelve places. Say, how'd you cut your hand?"


Sam looked at his hand and said, "I don't know. I cut it working around the place I guess."


"Sam, Ray says he told you early this morning what the posse wanted last night. Didn't he ask you, Dad, have you seen Mr. Roach?'"


Pierce shook his head. "If he did, I didn't hear him. I didn't answer him."


"Do you mean he's a liar?"


"I don't know.


"Sam, do you believe in an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth?"


"Why, yes. That's in the Bible."


Wynne turned on the old man suddenly. "Sam," he said harshly, "you've been lying. This is what really happened:


"You killed Roach out there!"


"No. I didn't! I Didn't!" Sam's cry interrupted the tense moment.


Relentlessly, Wynne continued: "You shot Roach and that sack of clover seed stopped most of the shot, so when he wouldn't die you beat him, and when he still wouldn't die, you held his head in one hand and cut his throat with the other. When the knife slipped out, it cut your hand. That's how you got that cut."


Cold Sweat popped out on Pierce's forehead, and the veins in his hands stood in bold relief.

He leaned forward to stare wildly into the coroner's eyes. "No-No-I didn't kill him. I didn't--"


Wynne turned to Sheriff Dunbar. "Sheriff," he said deliberately,” the man who killed Roach has the mind of a fifteen-year old child. He ambushed Roach and clubbed him and then the dirty coward took a knife and slit his throat. The man who did this--" and here Wynne looked contemptuously at Pierce as he emphasized his--- "was a dirty coward. Take him back to jail."

Pierce was led trembling to his cell, where he immediately asked for his Bible. But his study was interrupted within a few minutes as Wynne entered to apply paraffin for a nitrate test and get parings from under Sam's fingernails.


"What's this for?" Sam asked.


"I can tell where you've been, what you've been handling by the dirt in your nails, and the paraffin is to tell me if you fired a gun recently. I think you did this killing Sar, and I'm going to use every scientific device I can to learn the trutb--the powder test, a gun test and even a lie detector.


Sam looked startled. "A lie detector? What's that?"


"It's,thing that can tell whether you're lying."


Fear and cunning showed in the old man's eyes. "That ain't right," he said. "There can't be a machine like that--It's the work of the devil and the Lord wouldn't allow it."


"It may be the work of the devil," Wynne said, "but it works. And we're going to take you to Indianapolis tomorrow to see whether you've been telling the truth."


Sam turned again to his Bible for comfort as the coroner left. He was sure he'd find proof that such a thing as a lie detector couldn't exist. Nervously be shook his shoulders as though to cast off an evil spirit.


A thing to tell if you're lying? Sam's mind, unversed in modern science and bewildered by the deductions the officers already had drawn, conjured up a nightmare animal, ready to spring at him should he fail to tell the truth.


The sheriff led him up the wide walk toward the front basement entrance. "The lie detector's in the basement," he said.


Instantly, the farmer's fear of the machine showed in his wild stare. He hung back slightly, then braced his shoulders and walked up the cement as though tramping to his death.


He trembled as the sheriff opened the door. Once inside and down the short flight of steps, he glanced about the hall, then turned suddenly to tbe sheriff:


"I killed him, sheriff."


The words almost tumbled over--each other as they spewed from Sam's nervous face.


"I killed him. Don't put that lie detector on me."


Surprised by the sudden confession, Dunbar glanced meaningfully at Thompson and Bennett.


"We won't need the lie detector now, Sam," he said.


Willingly now, as though a great load were off his mind, Sam nodded gratefully and the quartet went to Lieutenant Hinkle's office in State Police Headquarters.


There, without any prompting, Sam gave the details of the killing--one of the most cold--blooded stories the officers had ever heard.


"I just shot him," Sam said, as the stenographer's racing fingers took down his words, "and he fell to the ground. I got me a club and knocked him in the head. I couldn't kill him by knocking him in the head, so I had to cut the blood veins in his throat and bleed him to death the way you kill a calf. I waylaid him and after killing him I threw him in the bushes. He was too heavy for me to carry very far. He never said a word.


"I've told you about it and I don't want to hear anymore questions. I don't even want to discuss the case.


Sheriff Dunbar immediately called Deputy Hayes and ordered that Ray Pierce be released. He was, of course, absolutely innocent of any connection with the affair, and subsequent analysis of the bloody overalls found at the Pierce home proved that the blood was not human.


Sam was put in the Monroe county jail at Bloomington after Hayes warned that feeling was running high in the neighborhood where the Roaches lived.


It was while Sam was reenacting the crime for Sheriff Dunbar the following Sunday that he revealed a second motive in addition to the fight he bad had with Roach.


"Roach's uncle killed my brother Bill forty years ago and the law let him off." he said.


During the reenactment, the sheriff allowed the old man to enter the Hount Pleasant Church where he had been a pillar for so long. There Sam took a book of hymns from a shelf behind the organ and in a baritone that had become slightly husky, sang his farewell to the hills and fields he had known so well.


Ten days later Sam pleaded guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to life in the Indiana State Prison at Michigan City.


Note: Sam spent a few years in prison, but because of a terminal illness, he was released and allowed to go home, where he died November 8, 1946.

[1] Based on information in the 1850 census report the Pierce family moved from Virginia and lived in North Carolina for a while - roughly from 1826 to 1832. Josiah Puckett Pierce’s oldest son, Newton, was married in 1829 Surry County, North Carolina - giving me my best clue where in North CCaroline the Pierce family lived.

[2] Newton Pierce Jr. - actually son of Henry (not Newton Pierce, Sr.)

[3] Samuel commits murder in 1939 and is sent to prison – he is released shortly before his death in 1946.

[4] James Lovell living in Pleasant TWP, Fulton County, IL brother to Margaret (Lovall) Pierce, wife of Henry Toller Pierce

[5] Came across these Lovell’s while doing research on another family line – birth locations are similar to the Lovell’s of my research but an actual family connection is not made, at this time.

[6] Jonathan Jasper Pierce married Elizabeth Roy 6 Aug 1863 in Lawrence County, Indiana. They were still in Lawrence County when my great-great-grandmother, Nancy Margaret Pierce, was born in 1864, they were in Fulton County, IL in 1872 when son William was born, and in Ottawa County, KS in 1872 for Mary's birth.

[7] Jane Pierce married Robert Dunbar 10 Sep 1874.

[8] Widow of Henry Toller Pierce.

[9] Herrod Pierce married Emma E. Brooks 25 Sep 1879 in Knox Co, IL.

[10] At least four sons of Henry Toller Pierce, Sr. ended up in Ottawa County, Kansas - but all arriving at different time frames based on the birth locations of their children.

[11] Reported having  9 children with 5 living at the time of the census.

[12] Reported having 13 children with 6 living at the time of the census.

[13] According to the 1920 Ottawa County, Kansas census Jonathan and Elizabeth Pierce, and their daughter Mary E., were still living together in Culver - where the elder Pierce's remained until their death. They are buried in the Culver Union Cemetery in Ottawa County, Kansas. Their oldest daughter, Nancy Margaret Pierce, married William Milton Stanley in 1882 Ottawa County. William Milton Stanley was the son of Robert and Anna Cornelius Stanley of Ottawa County. William Milton and Nancy Pierce Stanley were the parents of my great-grandmother Grace Alice Stanley. Grace married Elzy Ray Davis in 1904 Ottawa County, KS - they had eight children before Grace's untimely 1926 death, shortly after childbirth, Ellis County, Kansas.

[14] License only – did not return to report wedding.

[15] This is inaccurate.  Henry Toller Pierce, Sr. and wife, Margaret, never left Fulton County, Illinois – Henry died in 1876.

[16] A connection to the Pierce families of this research not made.

[17] No death date showing for William H. Pierce
