The following is from the Bible of my great-grandparents, Jesse B. Pierce (b. 1861 Clinton Co.) and Esther Lucretia "Ella" REEVES (b. 1867 Clinton Co.)
Jesse PIERCE's parents were Francis M. PIERCE, d. abt. 1860 Clinton Co., and wife, Sarah "Sally"SMITH, of Clinton Co., KY.
Ella REEVE's parents were Arthur Duffield REEVES, b. 1816 Carter Co., TN, d. 1899 Young Co., TX (a son of Edward Prothero REEVES and Sarah PIERCE), and Mary Ann "Polly" BURCHETT, b. 1830, d. 1921 Grayson Co., TX (a daughter of Icil BURCHETT and Elizabeth "Betsy" HENRY).
