Brooklyn Standard Union obit of July 3, 1918. Miriam M. PEARSALL, whose decease at the age of ninety-two years was
announced today, had been a resident of the Eastern District for many years. With her late husband, William PEARSALL, she came to Brooklyn seventy years ago and lived in the Eastern District forty-two years, removing thence to the home of her eldest son, Latham D. PEARSALL, in
Decatur Street. In Manhattan she was a member of the old Attorney Street M. E. Church, joining on removal by letter with the old Grand Street Methodist Church, where she and her husband became active members. She was the mother
of eight children, four of whom survive; Miss Emma BENSON, Alonzo PEARSALL, George W. PEARSALL, and Mrs. C. W. GRAHAM. At a reception recently given her by her descendants there were present six children, twenty grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. I am not related & have no other info.
