Weddings a Good Time for Taking Family Photos

Twenty years separated the birth of the oldest and youngest of the nine children of N.B. "Bonie" Pierce and Julia L. Moody of Mobile, Alabama. They didn't often get together for a photo. One occasion when they did was the marriage in 1948 of Beatrice V. Pierce to Ralph E. Poore.

From left to right and from youngest to the oldest above are, Raymond Lamont Pierce (1923-1981), Beatrice Valara Pierce (1921-1993), Ralph Bailey Pierce (1917-1984), Velma Moree Pierce (1913-1993), George Carl Pierce (1916-1989) always called Carl, Wilson Taft "W.T" Pierce (1910-1983), Hazel Lee Pierce (1905-1985), Cecil Alvy Pierce (1907-1975), and Ina Mae Pierce (1903-1977).


  1. Thank you for these postings. One day I will figure out my Pierce lines.

    1. Thanks, Dorothy! Lewis Monroe Pierce (b. April 15, 1832, d. March 1, 1902) is a real brick wall for me. I'm not sure who his father is. Many researchers list him as the son of John Pierce, but there doesn't seem to be evidence of that. Take a look at this post Good luck with your research!
