Does anyone have information regarding a Robert Pearse who died in Northlew Devon County England on July 17, 1752? I'm also looking for information on Robert's nephew John Pearse born August 8, 1805 and married Ann Mill at Worlaton, Cornwall England on September 15, 1832. This John Pearse was a jeweler and clock maker in Swansea, England. John and Ann moved to St. Johns in Canada in 1842. In 1850 they moved to Whitewater, Wisconsin. Later he moved to Palmyra, Wisconsin and bacame a leading citizen and continued in the jewelry business until his death on September 1, 1893. John and Ann had a son, Henry Pearse, born at Ridgeford, Devon County England on July 1, 1833. They also had a daughter, charlotte. Henry married Mary Ellis at Whiteside County, IL and they resided in Palmrya, WI. Henry was gun smith. He died 1916 and is buried int eh Belvidere, IL Cemetary. Anyone with info. in regards to these men or their ancestors would be appreciated.
Thanks--Terri Pearse
