I am researching decendents and ancestors of Mike Pierce (b. abt 1839 in Miss) and settled in Harrison county Texas in the mid-1800s. Mike Pierce married Mary Cole (b. abt 1844 in Tx). Their children were Reuben, Quitman, Mike Jr., George, Ellen, Mary Jane, Eugenia (Jennie), Seanie, and Ophelia. One of their descendents may have moved to Nebraska prior to 1930.
My great grandmother Eugenia Pierce b. abt. 1880(dau of Mike Pierce) married Henry Haynes (b. abt. 1872) in Texas in 1897. Eugenia and Henry Haynes lived in Caddo, Louisiana. Their children were Frank, Orestus, John Henry, Velta, Taylor, George, and Mary.

Henry Haynes had one sister, Sally and three brothers Sam, George, and Fred. I am also researching Haynes descendents and ancestors.

Mike Pierce had a brother Richard Pierce(aka Dick b. abt. 1841)who also relocated to Texas. Mike and Richard's mother was Lenso (aka Suny aka Susie) Young b. abt. 1801 in Georgia.

According to family history, Mary Cole (wife of Mike Pierce)was the descendent of a slave overseer and a slave, Jane. Mary Cole had three younger half siblings born to her mother Jane and stepfather Adam Harris (Harrison). Her siblings were Adeline Harris, Annie Harris, Emma Harris, and George Harris. Adeline m. Charles Pierce; Emma m. Mose Amos; Annie m. Robert Moseley, and Tony Phillips?; George Harris m. Sarah.

On census schedules family members are listed frequently as Black/mulatto.

I would appreciate any information. I would be willing to share my research as well.
