Dedicated to the preservation of the lineage of the surnames of Pierce, Morton, Ervin, More, Heron, Heck, Goens, Hayden, Pate and those we still don't know!
Are you related? Our family members include: Sir Thomas More (beheaded 1535) (Lord Chancellor of England under Henry VIII) who married Jane Colte, their children are Margaret, Elizabeth, Cecelia and John.
Cecelia married Giles Heron-who was also beheaded in 1540.
From there I have about a 300 yr. gap to their descendent Agnes Heron (ref. below).
(1800) Charles Ervin and Sarah Bennet who lived in Leesburg, Indiana, their children William, James (who married Lucinda Cummings), Polly (Runyan), Susan (Bennett), Rebecca (Moon), Nancy (Flowers), Aggie (Rousseau), Quiteria (Yohn). Our link is William Ervin, who's son was C.L. Ervin who made his living in El Paso, Texas owning a furniture store and later moved to Los Angeles, Ca. along with his wife "Mrs. C.L. Ervin" and their children, Josephine(Wilmott), Dell(Bowen), Irene(Bailey), William, Charles L.(Lemon) Ervin and Walter Ervin. Walter married Elaine Turner Lara, who's sons were Walter F. Ervin and Harry A. Ervin.
Irma Cecelia(Ervin)Morton married William Oscar Morton (born 1875), and their children were Ruth (Gleisberg), Doris M.(King) and Irma Ruby(Pierce)(11/17/02 - 5/85).
Irma Ruby Morton married Clair Aitken Pierce (1/17/1895 - 4/9/1994), and his parents were Louis V. Pierce and Agnes(Heron)Pierce. Agnes is our link to Sir Thomas Mores' daughter Cecelia (More) Heron and we believe as born in Kingston, Jamaica. Her parents moved to Jamaica from Guildford, England.
Clair had a sister named Mabel Pierce (1893-1911)who died of T.B.
Clair and Irmas' children were Richard Morton Pierce (9/17/37) who married Harriet Mabel Hayden (10/31/40)and their children were Natalie Lynn Pierce and Douglas Hayden Pierce.
Douglas passed away 9/25/2004 due to serious tractor accident. Never had children.
Natalie married Robert Wayne Heck, Jr. and had 1 daughter (11/24/80) Serena Lynn Heck. She divorced 3/17/1984 and her second marriage was to Richard Jackie Dean Goens, Jr. 5/18/1985. They had 1 son (4/10/86) Justin Douglas Goens and divorced 8/1995. Natalie decided she would not get married again because it would ruin her sentence....."Pierce, where the Heck ya goin?..back to Pierce". Just a little silly trivia!
Serena married JJ Lingenfelter in the year 1999 and had 1 son, Kayden Riley Lingenfelter on 6/22/2000. She divorced and met David Smith. They had 1 son on 3/25/2008 named Leland David Douglas Smith. Leland was born on the same day as his Uncle Doug.
