William Pearce 1735 - 1799

Looking for information on William Pearce (family) died in Manasquan, buried in Atlantic View Cemetery. My research is conflicting - I have him married to Mary Martha Green in 1755 and perhaps having 3 children - William, Samuel and Charity. He then married Lydia Tilton Curtis (previously married to Herbert Curtis having a child Thomas). William and Lydia had 3 children - James, Asher and Benjamin. I have found millenium records on ancestry that state that William and Lydia had a son William born 1770, I have also found information that there was a William Curtis born 1757 to Lydia. Perhaps the Williams are mixed up on some of these sites. Can anyone shed some light on which children belong to which set of parents? I decend from Asher (Mary Ellison), but I want to keep my records straight.
