__________

Jonathan Pierce's 24 acres. Deed entered April 19, 1821, Columbus County.[7]

  • Grant no. 351
  • "On the SW side of Bogue Swamp".
  • "...lying between the lines of 160 acres granted to Thomas Lucas Dec. 31, 1735 and 100 acres granted to Stephen Smith Oct. 23, 1782..."
  • If my facts are straight, Thomas Lucas, Sr. (1719-1795) never came to Bladen or Columbus counties, but his son, Thomas Lucas, Jr. (1748-1792) appears in Bladen County. Mary Pauline Lucas is the daughter of Thomas Lucas, Jr. Mary Pauline marries Jesse Smith.
  • On image 640 of 1456, it put the first initial and last name (Very difficult to read the first initial.) But it appears to state "J. Pierce Dwelling House". If so, this is Jonathan Pierce's house.
  • From the deeds of Arthur Smith in Bladen County (Now Columbus) it appears that Mary Holland Smith and her siblings may have been born on Bogue Swamp.

__________

  • There is a Samuel Holland Pierce born Aug. 5, 1820 in Columbus Co., N.C.
  • Columbus County was created from Bladen County.
  • Samuel is buried in Elbow-Pierce Cemetery, Columbus Co., N.C.
  • I have not identified Samuel yet.
  • Where does this "Holland" name come from?

__________

  • Speculating on where Mary Holland Smith's middle name may have come from:
  • Mary Holland Smith's father, is Arthur Smith.
  • Landgrave Thomas Smith Senior (1648-1694), Governor of South Carolina, married first, Barbara Atkins, and second- Sabrina de Vignon about 1687.
  • Sabrina de Vignon's first husband was Jan Van Arrsens.
  • "Jan Van Arrsens led a small group of settlers from Holland to the province of Carolina around 1686..."[13]
  • Landgrave Thomas Smith, Sr. and Barbara Atkins had two sons- Thomas Junior and George.
  • Landgrave Thomas Smith, Jr. (1670-1738). His Will (1739) is in Charleston County, South Carolina. In his Will, Thomas Jr. names his children. His sons are Henry, Thomas, George, and Benjamin. He, (Landgrave Thomas Smith, Jr.) gives them land at the mouth of Cape Fear River, etc. (Brunswick County, N.C.) (Brunswick County is next to Bladen County.)
  • There is a Benjamin Smith Esquire, in the 1790 Brunswick County, N.C. census. He has 221 slaves. This appears to be the Benjamin Smith that becomes the 16th Governor of N.C.
  • I am still searching for Arthur Smith's parents.
