Franklin Co marriage bond: 17 Dec 1865: Archibald Pearce to Adaline PRIVET; Clem Alford, bm; married by W.S. Cheves (Cheaves), JP.
This Archibald/ "Baldie"/ "Baldy"/ appears to be the son of John Jackson Pearce & Jane ____? who are in Wake Co. in 1850 (Cross Roads District) and 1860 (North Eastern Division).
Possibly Jane is Jane/Jiney Alford..... there is a Wake Co. marr. bond which seems to fit - dated 29 Nov 1831, John Pearce Jr. to Jiney Alford, Timothy Barham bondsman.
"Baldy" Pearce is shown age 11 in 1850, then age 18 in 1860, but there is no doubt this is the same family.
Other children of John Jackson Pearce & Jane (per the 1850 & 1860 censuses):
Allison (male) b ca 1832; Bryant (b ca 1836); Calvin (b ca 1836 - shown same age, 14, as Bryant in 1850; shown age 20 in 1860; possibly these were twins, but Bryant is not in the household in 1860); Richard b ca 1846; James b ca 1848.
Also in the household both in 1850 & 1860 is a Lotty Pearce, b ca 1825, who could be a sister to John Jackson Pearce.
John, Jane, Alison & James are residing together in Wake Co/ Wake Forest Twp/ in 1870. Archibald & wife Adaline, along with Junius (2) &
William 2? months, are in Franklinton Twp, Franklin Co.
Hope this helps.
(descendant of Haley Pearce who md Martha Pearce 10 Sept 1816, Franklin Co.)
