Requesting information regarding a JAMES PIERCE (b.19 Aug 1817 in Oneida County, NY) and family. James Pierce fought in the Canadian Rebellion of 1837-38. He was captured and transported to VanDieman's Land (Tasmania) Penal Colony in 1839. He was pardoned after serving a few years, returned to New York, married a Fidelia ________? in about 1850 and had a son, Edward, b. about 1851 in NY.
By 1857 he and his family had moved west to the frontier to Kewaunee County Wisconsin and purchased land in Pierce Town - named after James Pierce. James died 1 Feb 1863 at the age of 46 of Smallpox. His wife and son died just weeks later. No death records exist here because it was so early in our county's history.
I have found James and Fidelia Pierce in the 1850 Oneida County Census in Marshall living with a Jesse & Nancy Patrick. He is found in the 1860 Census in the Town of Pierce in Kewaunee County, WI.
I'm looking for his ancestors - parents & siblings, also his wife, Fidelia's, maiden name, and any other Pierce Family info.
I appreciate any help you can give me and thank you for your time.
