Our known Pierce heritage begins with the marriage of Sabina to a Mr. Pierce in Tennessee about 1820 to 1825 period. We know this from census records and the birth dates of Bird and Young Pierce and the approximate birth date for their older sister. There could be other siblings besides the three we know about. Bird Pierce married Sarah Scoggin in Coryell County Texas on the first day of September in 1855. It was one of the first marriages in the newly formed Coryell County. Bird Pierce died in the Civil War in 1863 and later Sarah married Bird Clements. The marriage ceremony was performed by Sarah’s half-brother Isaac Scoggin who by then was a well known Methodist minister who performed dozens of marriages for the citizens of Bell and Coryell Counties.
