Welcome to the Young Pierce Family website. These pages are dedicated to the memory of Willie Eugene Pierce born in 1901. Gene, the seventh of Young and Roxie Pierce’s ten children, recognized the need for documenting family history and was the first to publish and distribute our story. His small pamphlet included a short narrative of the death of his grandfather at the hands of Comanche Indians as well as vital statistics of family births, marriages, and deaths.
The purpose of this site is to facilitate connections among living descendants, encourage a dialogue of family stories, document our shared history, and support frequent family reunions.
Our hope is that you will find these pages useful and interesting and in turn share your information to further extend our common family history.
We offer this information as a tool to your own research and do not represent it as the last word. Indeed much of it was obtained from family members and other researchers and is not supported by acceptable source documentation. We are happy to furnish such sources as are available and solicit your viewpoints that sometimes may differ.
Corrections, additions, recommendations, comments or shameless praises are welcome. I hope you enjoy your visit and return often.
