On November 12, 1786 William Kierse was granted 100 Acres on the waters of Great Saltcatcher's Cowpen Branch in the Orangeburgh District of Winton County, South Carolina.

South Carolina's first census was taken in 1790.  From this census we found that a George Kierce lived in Orangeburg District, South Carolina.  His family consisted of 2 males over 16 years, 4 males under 16 years, and 4 females.

Rev. Wilson J. Kierce was born in South Carolina in 1810 to John and Rebecca Kierce and sometime after that moved with his family to Emanuel County, Georgia where he grew up and married Bedy Jane Curl on November 11, 1829.  Wilson moved his family to Baker County, Georgia in 1842 and on December 25, 1855 he moved to Elba in Coffee County, Alabama.  Sometime after 1860 he moved to Andalusia in Covington County, Alabama where he lived until his death in 1886.  His remains are intered near Florala in  Covington County, Alabama.
