I know this is an old post. My third great grandfather was George Pierce. He came over on a ship from London. I have no idea where he actually lived. He always had England on the census. He was born in 1798. He married Amelia Corbett after moving from SC to the Waycross, GA area. I have heard that he came over with a brother. But have found no evidence of a brother. Rumor also had it that he was an indentured servant here in the US. Would like to hear more info on George.
