Family Names

I’ve picked through a little bit of the family geneology that Carole Pierce Gardner recently sent. One great thing about having information about our ancestors is that we now have a rich set of names that can be used for any of our future children, assuming we are going to use family names. Here’s a few of the possibilities arising out of the Pierce line prior to the Revolutionary War.
