Pearces and Rhodes in Wake Co, NC

I'm looking for any information on the Pearce/Rhodes lines in Zebulon, NC. Here is what I have so far:

Ada (Candace?) Rhodes m. Ned Ruffin Pearce sometime before 1912. They had 4 children:

Ruby Alice Pearce ... b. 1912, d. 1985
Delia Ruth Pearce ... b. 1914, d. 1992
Ned Russell Pearce ... b. 4/18/1916, d. 11/12/1992
Rena Margaret Pearce ... still living

Ned Ruffin Pearce was a farmer in Zebulon. We think his father's name was Jack ... a very tall man with huge hands who died after being hit by a train.

Ada Rhodes Pearce went to New York to live with her brother after Ned Ruffin Pearce's death, and the children were sent to the orphanage. My grandfather found out that she had died around his 13th birthday, so she must have died in April 1929.

If anyone has any information or pictures that would help us, my mother and I would greatly appreciate it!
