Sorry for taking so long to reply but I just noticed your message. I don't have anything definite showing that the John Pearl listed in this message was married to an Alice Phillips. There is a land transaction signed by John and Alice Pearl abt. 1803 in Kings County. John Pearl's
death record states he was married to Susan Chappell but I believe this is wrong. When John died in 1844 his wife's name was Alice.
John is my ggggrandfather. Thank you for your interest. Another Pearl researcher had told me years ago she had received an e-mail from some
one stating that Alice Phillips had married a Pearl from Annapolis
County. We are trying to find the source.
