Pierce Mothershead Family Ties

Eliza (Rogers) Pierce assisted several family members and friends when they were giving birth. The records below, along with many others, are also available on the Missouri State Archives website. Please note that the first record listed Eliza did not help with the birth, but I believe the father, Wiliam R. Pierce, was Eliza's nephew so I included the record. The relationships as I know them will be in italics.

The order of information is:
Name of child ~ Sex of child ~ Birth order ~ Race ~ Date of birth ~ Place of birth ~ Nationality of father ~ Father's birthplace ~ Father's age ~ Nationality of mother ~ Mother's birthplace ~ Mother's age ~ Mother's full name ~ Mother's maiden name ~ Residence of mother ~ Father's full name ~ Father's occupation ~ Name & address of medical attendant ~ Returned by ~ any other notes. All fields are separated by a "-", so when you see 2 hyphens with a space in between, it means there was nothing on the form for that field. Question marks mean something was illegible.
