Gerald Leonard and Pattie Neal Hunt provided me a copy of the Plummer Pearce Book (1811 – 1856).
Reverend Plummer Pearce was my 3rd Great Grandfather. He lived in Franklin County, North Carolina; married Martha Ann Leonard in March 1833; and his parents were John Pearce (1776 – 1831) and Rebecca Allen (1764 – 1869).
Plummer used this book to document his family’s births, along with some church activities. Here are scanned images of the book along with a transcription.
