As to where else they may have lived. 1880 census said
Va for the birthplace of Thomas B PIERCE father.
It also said Va for the birthplace of Rebecca UNKNOWN's
father. But of course I have no idea where in VA

If anyone sees anything that sounds familiar please let me know.
Be happy to share. Would love to find someone else researching
