Jesse William PEARMAN was b abt 1795 in VA and married Margaret S.???. She was born abt 1801 in KY and they resided in the Hardin, LaRue, Hart County areas. Jesse's father was Nathan PEARMAN. Jesse and Margaret's children were Elizabeth (COFFMAN) b abt 1819, Nathan W b abt 1823, Mary (LONG) b abt 1827, Nancy (DAVIS) b abt 1831, Elisha G. b Sept 1832, Anna Mariah (OWEN) July 1833, Johnathan R b abt 1835, Susan J b abt 1837 and Martha Ann (GIBSON) b abt 1841, all in Hardin, LaRue or Hart Co, KY. Several of the children seem to have moved to Missouri before the settling of Jesse's estate. I think Jesse's siblings were Price and Anna PEARMAN. If anyone can help me on this family, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Gemi

Once to a Gregory and once to a Day poss in Allen or Monroe Co, Ky. Both Willis and Prosser witnessed a paper for Clarissa Cruse in LaRue Co in 1820's and 1840's. No relationship stated.
