I have reread the material I have on this family and am not sure about William T. Pearsey being the father of Jacob W. Pearcy at this point. The IGI has an entry that states that William T. & Sarah Pearsey are the parents of Jacob as well as a Matilda Pearsey b.ca.1828, but this isn't verified. William T. Pearsey is found in the Louisiana census records of 1810-30. I thought he was the same man as B.T. Pearsey, b.ca.1775 S.C., of Bibb Co. Ga., 1850, but recently discovered a Benjamin T. Pearcy b.ca.1801 S.C. in the 1870 census. I don't think William T. lived in Bibb Co. Ga. at this point.
There is a large Pearsey/Pearcy family that lived in the far east corner of North Carolina, just across the border from where Jacob and John Pearcy lived in Georgia. They
are fairly well researched and may be connected to your family.
I found a Matilda Pearsey and a Henry Leon Pearsey, apparently siblings, who married in Arkansas in 1858. They may be children of William T. Pearsey. I'll check my records and see if the North Carolina family matches up with Jacob, John and Matilda Pearcy.
