This information was submitted by David Kane.

     Dave would appreciate hearing from anyone who can help him locate and piece together his Pearce Ancestors.  Thomas Pearce was on of the first settler's to be in the Berwick Twp, area of Warren county and the Berwick Cemetery sits on property once owned by him and he started this cemetery much to the belief that some other people have about it. We are also looking for the last resting place and information on his wife Phebe Pearce. please feel free to email Dave and also if you would happen to have information on Phebe Pearce.

 I would love to know about it also as I have searched high and low for more information about her and her family to no avail.
