States: Texas: Montague
Looking for the grandchildren (or their descendants) of Martin Pierce and wife, the former Mittie A. Tisdale. Martin Pierce and family moved from Dyer Co, TN to Forestburg, Montague Co, TX just before the 1900 Census. They had several offsprings too lengthly to list here. My cousin just reminded me that a grandson of Martin and Mittie Ann Tisdale Pierce spent the night with her father in Dyersburg, Dyer Co, TN probably about the 1950s. She said that he grandson was a rodeo rider from TX. I have been fortunate to hear from researchers about the family of Martin who have given me information heretofore unknown.
Martin Pierce served in Company G of the 20th TN Cavalry in the Civil War. Wounded and sent to the Lauderdale Confederate Hospital in Lauderdale Co, MS; recovered; returned to Dyer Co, TN; married Mittie A. Tisdale; farmed; and then moved to Montague Co, TX just before turn of the twentieth century.
