Notes


1. Descendants of JOHN WILLIAM PEARL
Generation No. 1
1. JOHN WILLIAM1 PEARL was born 1741 in Fredrick Co., Md., and died Unknown in Hardin Co., Ky. He married Chistina Baumgardner 1762 in Fredrick Co., Md.. She was born Unknown in Fredrick Co., Md., and died Unknown in Hardin Co., Ky.


Our ancestors were farmers and black-smiths, and knowing nothing of soil preservation they farmed the land until it was no longer productive. Then moved on to more productive lands, until again they wore out the land, migrating all the while further west. Having heard of the fertile lands in the new territories, they decided to head for "Old Kentuck". Sometime after the birth of their youngest son "George Pearl", the family migrated to Kentucky, which was then part of Virginia and referred to as the New Territories.


They came down the Appalachian Trail, through the Cumberland Gap into the southeastern part of Kentucky. Northwest up the "Wilderness Trail", through what is now Rockcastle, and Laurel Counties, to "Old Fort Harrod" (Harrodsburg), then into Nelson County, Kentucky. This was a long and dangerous journey into the unknown. Mostly on foot, with only a very few were allowed to ride in the horse or ox drawn wagons and carts, (only the very old, the very young, the ill and the infirm), many did not complete the journey. All along the way they encountered hardship, accidents, illness, and fights with Indians. Some settled along the way before reaching Kentucky, some were born along the way, some died along the way, and some later moved further west into Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Texas, Nebraska, Idaho, and Washington. Many of our ancestors were veterans of the Revolutionary War of Independence against the British, and as a reward for their service were given land warrents (land grants) in the New Territories.


In the early years when Kentucky was still part of Virginia, there were only three counties in Kentucky, Fayette covering all of the eastern part, Jefferson covering the northwestern part, and Lincoln covering the south-central and southwestern part. In 1785 Nelson County was created from part of Jefferson County, with Bardstown as the County Seat, becoming the 4th county to be created in Kentucky. What is now the Big Clity area of Grayson County was then part of Nelson County.


In 1793 Hardin County was created from Nelson County, becoming the 15th county to be organized in Kentucky, with the County Seat in Elizabethtown. Grayson County was created in 1810 from parts of Hardin, Nelson, and Ohio Counties, with the County Seat in Leitchfield.


The first Governor of Kentucky was Isaac Shelby, elected in 1792 as a Jeffersonian/Republican. He was a Farmer, Surveyor, and Soldier, who was active in the American Revolution, and as an Indian Fighter. He was reelected again in 1812. The Commonwealth of Kentucky was admitted to the Union as the 15th state in 1792. Kentucky did not elected its first Lt. Governor until 1800 when Alexander Scott Bullitt was elected. He served in office until 1804, and was a Jeffersonian/Republican like the Governor at that time. Many early settlers of Kentucky were veterans of the French and Indian Wars and the Revolutionary War of Independence. Many of them coming to Kentucky to claim the bounty land granted for service during the above mentioned wars.


One of the many interesting things that we found during our research was that the spelling of our name has either changed over the years, or was misspelled due to the fact most of the people in those time were at best semi-literate, and names were more often spelled phonetically as they sounded. We have found our name spelled as PERREL, PERRELL, PEREL, and PERRIL.


When gong this far back in history, a great deal of genealogical research is by necessity based on deductive reasoning. Our research of Frederick County, Md. records list a large number of Pearl's up to and including the present time. We do not discount the possiblility that "John William Pearl" might not be the father of George Pearl. However, the dates seem about right, and when you compare the number of times down through the generations the "given names" of "John" and "William" are used in our family history, we feel that it is a safe assumption that he is our forefather.


We further feel that it is again would be safe to assume that John William and Christina, (as well as many more of our ancestors), had more children than we have listed. Families in those times were of necessity large, however we can find no records of any other children except those as listed.
