I've begun a family tree for my husband Denton Langridge and would appreciate any information about the 4 Denton Pearsalls (2 sets of Sr.-Jr. spanning 1811-1971) of Westchester County, N.Y. and their descendents/families. Denton's maternal grandmother is Helen Le Roy Pearsall, who married William Henry Russell Langridge I of Yonkers. Bessie A. Pearsall, unmarried, lived with Helen and Bill Langridge for years in Yonkers, N. Y.

Denton S. Pearsall, Sr.(1811-1879) of West Farms/Morrisania m. Elizabeth Underhill (1815-1889). They both died with West Farms as their home. They had 13 children: Sarah Amelia, Charles Benjamin, Esther E., Mary Louise, Denton S., Jr., George H., Margaret S., Benjamin, Sarah W., Lydia A., Sophia, D'Anjou, and Nora E.

Denton S. Pearsall, Jr. (1837-1901), d. in NYC?) m. Helen Le Roy Mitchell (1848-1910?), whose parents John and Jessie emigrated from Scotland in 1850. I believe that John Mitchell worked as a weaver at West Farms and his daughter Helen Le Roy Mitchell married the owner's son. Bessie A. Pearsall (1877-about 1965?), unmarried, d. Yonkers, N. Y., was one of their 7 children: Denton, Sr., Harry F., Gilbert "Bert" Underhill, Bessie A., Sadie A., Arthur Mitchell, and Nellie L.

Denton Pearsall, Sr. (1871-1950) m. Bertha Duke (1876-1948), and they both died in Mt. Vernon City, N. Y. They had 4 children: Denton, Jr., Helen B., George H., and Harry F.

Denton Pearsall, Jr. (1898-1971), d. at Mt. Vernon, N. Y., m. Regina S. Maley (1899-1988), d. at Mamaroneck, N. Y. Helen Le Roy Pearsall Langridge (1886-1971), d. at Yonkers, N. Y., had 1 sibling: Jane A. Pearsall (b. about 1925-d. ?). Denton Pearsall, Jr., was a mayor of Mt. Vernon, N. Y. and Kingston, N. Y.

Of course this information is subject to correction. Thanks if you have any information. I'd be happy to share my information, which is listed on
