I'd like to contact descendants or other relatives of William Pierpont (b. New Haven, CT, son of Evelyn Pierpont and Rhoda Collins). He was in Wayne County, NY (1821),Ashtabula Co., OH (before 1835), came to Shelby Co., TX, with first wife Sophronia Frisbie in 1835 or '6, was in Harris Co. area from 1838 to after 1845 (first wife died in 1840 at Lynchburg, TX; married Elizabeth Austin in 1845), family was in DeWitt County, TX, on 1850 census, was appointed postmaster of Pierpont Place, DeWitt County, TX, 1852 and 1854, and supposedly died at Wharton, TX, in 1866. I am looking for the places of burial of William and Elizabeth. What became of daughter Agnes by his first marriage and son John by his second marriage?
