Jeremiah Pierce
Of Mobile County ALabama

Jeremiah (Monroe?) "Jerrie" Pierce, Sr. born about 1783 North Carolina and believed to have died in Mobile Co., AL., and buried at the old Pierce Creek Cemetery.

He married 20 November 1805 in Oglethorpe Co., GA., to Nancy McLain or (McClain). She was born about 1790 in GA., and died before 1855. She is buried in Pierce Creek Cemetery, which is located on the Tanner Williams Road in Mobile County. Part of her tombstone is missing.

It is said that Jeremiah Pierce came to AL., in a high top buggy. If he married in Georgia then he came from that State to AL.

Jeremiah is found on the 1790 and 1800 census of North Carolina in Bertie Precinct. This only left five years for him to move from North Carolina to Georgia and marry there.

It appears he stayed in Mobile for a while, then left for Mississippi, but later returned to Mobile by 1850 as he is on the Census in Moble.
