|George Peirce (Pearce)
"George and Ann Gayner Pearce bought
land from Wm.
Penn and settled in Chester County PA in 1684. In 1716 he changed the
name to Peirce. One parcel of land became known as Peirce's Park
and his house on that parcel is now headquarters of Longwood
Gardens a public place owned by the DuPonts."

"He and his wife Hannah Harvey joined the Mormon Church and
came to Utah in 1847."
Two of his daugters (Mary and Margaret)
|John Henry Peirce
Settled on a homestead near Claresholm Alberta Canada. One of his sons
was John Raymond Peirce my Grandfather. I believe John Henry left the Mormon
Church and joined a Protestant denomination until his wife died after which
he returned to the Mormon Church.
