      SOURCE: Roger Kammerer
      Blount Coleman PEARCE
      Abstract taken from an obituary clipping (source unknown) in the notes of
      Roger Kammerer.
      Blount Coleman PEARCE was born in New Bern, NC on Jan. 5, 1829, the son of
      William Blount PEARCE and Mary HERRITAGE. He married Ann KINSAUL, daughter
      of Robert Marshal KINSAUL, one of the largest merchants in Pitt County.
      After the death of Ann in 1880, Blount took a position with a New York house
      and became a traveling salesman. He later served as Pitt County Register of
      Deeds, filling the unexpired term of W. A. CHERRY, who died while in
      office. Blount served in the Civil War and was a lifelong friend of Dr.
      Charles J. O'HAGAN. He had the distinction of being the first man in NC to
      be arrested for activities as a member of the Klu Klux Klan and was taken
      before the Military Court at Goldsboro, NC for trial. He always said that
      his being a MASON was the cause of his life being spared. He always took a
      prominent part in the public affairs of Greenville, NC. Blount was married
      second in June 1898 to Mrs. Maggie Newby HUNT of Sanford, NC and he moved to
      Sanford where he lived for twelve years. He was appointed the first

            Thanks to all who provided info and links about the Pearce family. Is
            there a way to get copies of items from the Ada Pearce Cherry papers without
            travelling to Greenville? Do they do an interlibrary loan or make copies
            upon request?
