We are researching the Pierce Family and the Ripley family of Michigan. We have found information on Perry's mother and father, Norman C. Pierce and Esme E. Lewin. They were married in Hinton, IA December 1912. I am still looking for information on the witnesses of their wedding, Cleveland and Nellie Pierce. We do know that Pierce ancestor came to Massachusetts in approx. 1630 with his brother Thomas Pierce(fore-father of President Franklin Pierce) from Nowich, Norfolk, England. But we haven't located which brother it was.

Georgia M. Ripley's family we have back to Harry and Olive(Anderson) Ripley. Harry was Born in Michigan and Olive was Born in Noble County, OH. Olive had 3 sisters and one brother living at the time of her death in 1979. There have been rumors in the family that there is a Native American connection on the Ripley side of the family but have not located any verifying or discreditting information as of yet.

Still looking for more information. I have some information back 7 generations so far on the Ripley side and back 3-4 generations on the Pierce side. Both sides are incomplete as far as children's names and some dates but still looking.
