For the first photo on this page
you have the following information:
Peg Leg Pierce's family: Clem A Pierce (left of Pegleg) Allen Pierce (right of PegLeg). Standing (arm on Peg Leg Pierce) LD Jr (my grandfather), Next- Ora Finley Pierce, Salley Fisher, holding babies
Ora holding Susie Pierce (2 months) Salley holding Valney Fisher.
Visa (Aunt Vice) Pierce Standing between two seated woman.
Other relatives (Lester Jones) says Sophie Holding Felix in Middle, and Salley Holding Harbert Clark on right. and Aunt Vice Standing. Am trying to get this straight and identified properly very soon I think this is incorrect the one above is correct.....
LDP 6-17-99 (QUESTION who would this Sophie Be?)
I think this picture was taken in 1904 and the
two babies are Susie (1904) and Volney Fisher.
Felix (1913) was not born yet.
I believe you have Ora ( 1867) holding Susie (1904)
and Sallie Fisher(1888) holding Volney,
with Visa (1891) standing behind them.
As for the 4 boys in the photo, based on their apparent ages, I would say:
--Clem (1893) (11) standing in back with arm on Peg Leg
--LD (1895) (9) on the right side
--George T (1899) (6) on the left side
--Allen (1901) (3) – in front between Peg Leg and Ora
Although, if you are sure the one standing in the back is your grandfather LD, then maybe he is actually younger than the boy on the right, so the one on the right would be Clem.
The boy on the left cannot be Clem. Clem is the oldest. The boy on the left has to be George T.

Brother to my Great Grandfather LD "Peg-Leg" Pierce Editors Note: My dad J.L. Pierce gave me several boxes of my Mothers Papers the last weekend of June 1999, and my mom had this photograph--a photocopy only. I think it looks marvelous considering it is the only known record of this man. I think it is it is possible this photo's original exists in my Uncle Allen's papers the Vernon's have. or one of my grandmother's aunts has it. Hope to find the original soon, but until then it is very nice to find even this photocopy!! (see below) June 2008 Marcia Tinder Descended from My Great Uncle George Pierce line sent me good scan of the photo of Clem Pierce. She got good copy from Uncle Allen Pierce in the early 1970s. She also send me copies of several other unknown photos.
Editors note: March 07, 2000 received a bunch of photographs from descendants of my grandmothers sister Susie Dacus Pierce. This Photo is marked "Cat Head Pierce 1900" In comparing the two photos I feel sure this is a photo of Clem Abercrombie Pierce. In the 1st photo (left) he is much younger. 2nd photo taken in 1900, he died in 1907. Of course the question is: if this is not Clem Pierce Sr.---who is CAT HEAD PIERCE? Editors Note Oct 2002: I am beginning to suspect that Cat Head Pierce Might be CAP Pierce who was Deputy Sherriff of Old Tascoca and was Killed in a Gunfight According to Wanda Ruby Info CAP Pierce was a descendan of Hugh Pierce and David Pierce
Editors Note Dec 2002: Found info on Clem George below http://www.sagecat.com/cherokee%20legion/CL_COA_C.HTM Company A, Cherokee Legion (Ga) Cavalry "Cherokee Rangers"
WANTED: WE NEED TO CONTACT DESCENDENTS OF THIS FAMILY WHO LIVE IN NEW YORK (WE HAVE HEARD) AND STILL OWN PART OF THE PIERCE RANCH AT GOATNECK JOHNSON COUNTY TX. WE ARE ALSO LOOKING FOR CLEM PIERCE'S BURIAL SITE. (DEC 1999 found that CA Pierce is buried Cleburne Cemetery, Block 28, Lot 20.) THANKS TO INFORMATION AND COPY OF OBITUARY RECEIVED FROM JOAN MARKS OF SALMON, IDAHO, RECEIVED JULY 12 1999 WE NOW KNOW HE HE DIED IN 1908 AT HOME, ACCORDING TO OBITUARY. WE NOW KNOW HE WAS BURIED IN JOHNSON COUNTY TX. WE KNOW THE WIFE AND DAUGHTERS WERE WITH HIM IN 1907 . OUR FAMILY HAS HEARD NOTHING FROM THIS FAMILY FOR 80 YEARS OR MORE. UPON FIRST READING OF THE OBITUARY BELOW I HAD DETERMINED HE DIED IN COLORADO, BUT REVIEWING WHAT WAS WRITTEN AND TITLE, HE MUST HAVE DIED AT GOATNECK PRIOR TO APRIL 5 1908.
