For Christmas, my grandmother Pearce gave me two family heirlooms.
E. P. Pearce Jr. stamp
Grandfather E. P. Pearce Jr. was the secretary for the Guilford County Board of Education. He must have used this worn stamp for many years.
E. P. “Ebbie” Pearce Sr. tie pin
Great Grandfather E. P. Pearce Sr.‘s nickname was Ebbie. This engraved tie pin must have been a favorite.
Thanks Nana for the gifts and for giving me the genealogy bug.
