1890 Pearsalls of Philadelphia

Hi there..the census's from 1920, 1910, and 1900 have had me on a wild goose chase..1920 listed William Pearsall and His Wife Margeret and their children William, Albert, George, Edward, Leo, and grandson William living on 1702 Tulip Street. Another grandson, Bernard was found to be living with his mothers sisters family the campions under the name of bernard parsons. William the father, his father was listed as being born in ireland, mom too, In the 1910 Census, with the exception of grandson William, all again were listed. Under Pearsell, this time William the father, father was listed as born in Connecticut...In 1900 under pearsill, again the same family is listed with the addition of an older daughter Maggie Pearsall. This time, William the father, father was listed as born in NEw York. William the father was also born in NY and this information was the same through all the census's. He was born Oct 1862, NY. Father and Mother are unknown right now. Now the 1890 Philly City Index lists a business Chase and Pearsall, William and Robert on 1704 Pine Street. Possible brothers?? and another business of John Pearsall and Son, thomas...relationship completely unknown at this time...I am looking for information on any of these Pearsall's. And any help would be welcomed.

I know this was long, I have been sending out for birth certificates, but still i have come against a brick wall. I do have the Pearsall Books and hope to tie into them soon, but unfortunately, a lot of the William's have little or no information on them. Anyways..if you can help me, guide me, point me in the right direction, I would be much grateful.

take care
