EBENEZER PIERSON

From "The History of Morris County New Jersey," Volume III, Lewis Publishing Co., 1914

"Ebenezer Pierson, father of our subject, served in the war of 1812 for a short period, and was stationed at Sandy Hook. He was the owner of a large farm of three hundred acres, on the Mendham road, a part of which is now owned by James Pierson, who occupies the old homestead. Ebenezer Pierson was twice married. On the 22nd of August, 1812, he wedded Miss Permelia Lindsley, and they had three children- Lettie, Julia, and Elizabeth. He was married, January 13, 1822, his second union being with Johanna Trowbridge, who was born October 8, 1797, a daughter of Austin Trowbridge, who was born April 19, 1767, and died June 7,1845. By the second marriage of Ebenezer Pierson were born five children, as follows: Samuel F.; Hannah, who married Charles M. Foster and is now living in Chicago, Illinois; Silas, deceased; George, who married Nancy Miller and moved to Chicago, where he died; and James, who wedded Catherine H. Halsey and is living in Morris township."
