Pierce Mothershead Family Ties
Locations of Mothershead Families in Census Years
There are, of course, many more Mothershead families than the ones listed here. I have not yet included the ones in Virginia and Missouri, plus I haven't started with the collateral lines! But I'm trying to track the Mothershead families coming out of Virginia to Kentucy in order to find out more about my great-great-grandfather, William Mothershead.
If you know of other Mothershead or allied families than the ones I've listed here, please email me! Eventually I hope to have the page integrate this information with the tax lists, deed records and marriage records.
