I have just begun to work this family -- I would like to know who has the actual marriage record for Catherine and Uriah Piercefield. I have found a death record for a son where the surname of his mom is listed as JESSOP. I am aware of some VA colony families who listed their mom on death certificates (and some marriage records) using only her first and middle name. IS this the case here? Which takes me back to Catherine's true surname and parents. Many list Catherine's parents as a Bartlett Collins and Judith Leonard.
Hoping someone from this Piercefield family of KY can help me find firm footing with this family.
ALSO I am using DNA to keep my work on track. I need help confirming the branch.
FInally, many list Uriah Royal Piercefield's dad as Bartlett Piercefield. Was his first name John? Has anyone delineated Jeremiah's and John's branches? Determined if Jeremiah and John were related and if yes how?
This is all possible via DNA testing. Here's hoping the Piercefields (and Collins and Jessups of this region of KY will establish their branches via FamilyTreeDNA.
