Pierce Mothershead Family Ties
|We currently have
a wonderful set of maps on this site for Jefferson County, Missouri
that were made by my brother, John Pierce, and fellow genaology researcher
Mona Houser. They show how the legal land and deed descriptions (such as
Township, Range, etc.) actually "fit" with the cities and towns of Jefferson
County. As we have time to make more, or find ones we think are useful, we
will add links to them here.
The next three links go to maps of the Chester County Pennsylvania area settled by the three Vernon brothers, Thomas, Robert and Randall, when they arrived in William Penn's Colony in 1682. All links open in new windows.
By coincidence, both the Mothershead's (my paternal line) and the Vernon's (my maternal line) lived in Cheshire County England from at least the 11th Century forward.
