At the Middle River Friends (Quaker) Church, out in the countryside just northeast of the town of Palmyra, my ggg grandmother's brother, William S. Pearson, son of Benjamin Pearson and Jane Burr (and husband of Catherine Brock, who was daughter of Stephen Brock and Ann Hart??. After Catherine died, he married Rebecca Todd Smith, who was the widow of William Smith) was a minister there. I think there is some confusion with another Quaker, William Pearson, of Oskaloosa, Iowa area.

William S. Pearson is buried next to his mother (my gggg)Jane (Burr) Pearson in the Middle River Friends Cemetery.
