And the Search Continues....

It is with sadness that I must state that Lynne Marie Peirce Scmidt, my sister, passed away June 2005. I am unable to get into her files at this time and I know she had information, I did not. In the meantime, have patience as I resume the searches of both the Maternal and Paternal lines.

It still feels like a new experience each day as I search and search and search....
The paternal lines -- Main names - direct lines
Sinnett -- Ireland to VA --- earlist dates - 1750's

Peirce-Missouri -- many spellings, Pearce, Pierce,
Perice, Peirce -- earliest dates (1829 Will)
Fagan - Missouri earliest dates 1810's
Beshears - VA KY Missouri earliest date know 1780's
Unsell - Missouri earliest dates - 1830's
Smith - Missouri - earliest dates 1848

Maternal Names - Main names - direct lines

Rickard - Illinois - 1870's
Nichols - Illinois - earliest date 1834
Curtis - Illinois 1840's

My search will never be finished... I enjoy walking the cemteries and visiting the libraries and courthouses...I also love chatting about possibilities and what if's...

I have many web pages... Please contact me via my email.

I look forward to hearing from you! And - Good Luck on your Searching...
