Seeking info about Charles Pearce, father of James Washington Pearce

+1 vote
I have reached a brick wall and am seeking information.

have traced my Pearce family back to my great great grandfather James Washington Pearce born 1833. He was the husband of Lidia Clendaniel. James Pearce was born in Maryland, and also lived in Phuladelphia and Baltimore. I have a death certificate that lists his farther as Charles Pearce and (unknown) Clark.

James Pearce's sons included my great grandfather as William Edward Pearce who was born in Pennsylvania and later moved to New Bern North Carolina and Suffolk Virginia.

If anyone has any leads they would be appreciated.

Hi John, the Charles you have is not connected to anyone. There are no sources for him at all. Profiles should not be created without at least one appropriate source. Whilst searching for sources you can add a ==Research Notes == header directly above the sources header on the profile you wish to connect to. Then you can make the new profile when you feel confident.

Thanks. However, I'm not sure I unerstand. When I tried to post  the question without a profile, Wikitree asked asked me to create a profile before I could post the question.

I don't have any information about him other that what I gave, for a proffile.
I don’t think you were asked for his profile, but rather if you have a profile that we could refer to, like the son, where we could get information from whilst looking for Charles. So please don’t feel compelled to create a profile with no sources as it’s not the Wikitree way.
Okay. I added and connected his profile to his son and grandsons from family knowledge and othr sources.
