I am searching for any information for or prior to Bluford Pierce. This is what I have been able to locate so far: b. May 1846 in Georgia. He married Mary (last name unknown) in 1883. She was born January 1865 in Georgia. They were listed in the 1900 Hall County Federal Census:

In searching for Bluford's parents I came across the 1870 Federal Census for Banks County, though the spelling of the last name is "Pearce" instead of "Pierce":
