This Pierce family migrated from County Tipperary, Ireland to Prince Edward Island, Canada in 1842.  Family tradition places them previously in England.

Our newest Crawford match in group C is an adoptee searching for the identity of his biological parents.  He is a perfect match with the modal markers for Capt. Michael Pierce and virtually all of his dna matches are with Pierces.  It is very likely that his father was a Pierce.  He is actively continuing to search for the identity of his biological parents using dna.

 

This Pierce family has as its oldest known ancestor Lawrence Pierce, born 1783 in New Hampshire.  Ezra Pierce from New Hampshire, a descendant of Capt. Michael Pierce, may be Lawrence's father.
