A plea for help: My grandmother was a Pire, from Bolivar NY. From what I gather, her father was James Pire, his father was Oscar Pire and his father was Russel Pier (apparently, Oscar changed the spelling of the name?)
I think I have traced this family all the way back to Thomas Pier, who was born in England in 1625. There's a book about him, "The Descendents of Thomas Pier", written by Joseph Pierre. His sons fought in the Revolutionary war and their history is realy fascinating.
Anyway, I was wondering if you could help me confirm the link from Oscar Pire to Russell Pier (spelled Russel Pier in the 1870 Bolivar census). I need to confirm that this is the same Russel that was born in Guilford NY around 1810 (maybe 1808) and that his father was Silas Pier.
I have found a couple of genealogy sites where users have submitted information that supports what I've come up with, but they are just people who posted family trees and messages on the web. I can't completely draw a conclusion using what I have.
If anyone has info, I'd apprecite it so much if you'd share it with me.
