Dee--what a nice thing to offer to do. I want you to know that I don't know very much. I presume he was from TX by the information about my family. They started at GA and the next I know they are in TX. I have not been able to find any definite info on him at all. I am assuming his name is Jerdan because that is what my mother always called him; it could also be Jordan---or some varient of the name (as Gerdan, Jerdon, etc). I know this isn't much for you to go on. I know his last name is Pearce. (Again we get into varient names.)I know he is buried at Grady, Curry, NM cemetery. I have been unable to locate an obit for him and his wife/sister?, Emma. She was either nee Pearce or nee Stanfield or nee Hutchins (somewhere within those families, anyway). There is just a grave marker on both of their graves put there by the Grady Cemetery Association. No dates. Jerdan may have been wounded during the war; if so maybe this would be a clue to help you. I'm sorry that I have so little info to go on. I know that makes your looking harder. If you feel this isn't enough info to delve into looking, I will understand. Thanks Sue
