Samuel Nelson Pierce, son of Jesse S & Elizabeth (Goff) Pierce, is the only Samuel Pierce in the 1850 census of Preston Co.

What a coincidence that Samuel Nelson Pierce and Samuel Wesley Pierce were both around the same age and both had a wife named Mary Ann.

Also, Samuel Nelson Pierce had a brother Adam WESLEY Pierce and their brother William married Ellen SINCLAIR. Could the two Samuel's have been cousins?

I found your Samuel in the 1860 census of Preston Co as Wesley Pierce age 30 born Va Farmer, Mary A Pierce age 25 born Va, Charles Pierce age 6 born Va and Sarah F Pierce age 4 born Va.

In the previous household is Robert Sinclair age 49 born farmer and Jane Sinclair age 39 born Va. In the 1850 census is Robert Sinclair age 48 born Va Farmer, Minerva Sinclair age 32 born Md, Mary A Sinclair age 15 born Va, Margaret K Sinclair age 10 born Va, Alexander Sinclair age 7 born Va and William Sinclair age 2 born Va. Is this Mary A (Sinclair) Pierce's family?

Can you provide me identifying information from Samuel Wesley Pierce's Civil War pension application; such as, place of enlistment, date and place of marriage etc? This may help me determine the "right" Samuel Pierce.

Sorry for misleading you but I hope the Pierce information I posted to the Forum will help other Pierce researchers.
