By now you may have found what you needed. You said you found Henry on the 1930 census, but you didn't give any details from that census, so I went looking:

1930 census Cherokee Co, TX:

Pearson, Henry C., h, 50, md @ 28, b AL, SC, GA
" Mattie, w, 45, md @ 23, b TX, TX, TX
" Henry C., s, 20, sgle, b OK
" Catherine A., d, 18, sgle, b TX
" Martin W., s, 16, b TX
" Alene, d, 12, b TX

1920 census Cherokee Co, TX:

Pearson, H.C., h, 40, b AR, AL, AL [salesman]
" Ethel, w, 36, b TX, TX, TX
" Henry O.[sic], s, 10, b TX[sic]
" Catherine, d, 8, b TX
" Martin, s, 5, b TX
" Alene, d, 2 ?/12, b TX

Since son Henry appeared to be born in OK, I went looking there next.

1910 census Atoka Co, OK:

Pearson, Henry C., h, 32 M(2) 2 yrs, b AL, AL, AL
" Lela E., w, 26 M(1) 2 yrs, b TX, TX, TX
" Henry C., s, 11/12, b OK
Martin, [not clear might be Louise?] sis-in-law, 17, sgle, b TX, TX, TX

I checked Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- -- Typed in Pearson, Henry, and spouse Martin. There are others working on this line, but looks like information came from one person and the others copied. I'd make contact, ask about the source of the information. Such as why is Henry's wife named "Mattie" on the 1930 census? And, wife's name is Ethel, not Edith, on the 1920 census? Someone knew Henry had gone to Bryan, TX, which is Brazos Co, TX, so I went looking for his death record. You could share this with the submitters on WorldConnect.
