What you're about to see is the family album created by Harrison Gordon ("Harry" or "Gordon") Pierce (1868-1959) for his elder son Robert Gordon ("Bob") Pierce (1904-1988).
Volume I focuses on the PIERCE, PARMENTER, ANGELL and BOYNTON families of central New York, though other families (both related and unrelated) are discussed. It covers these families up to the marriage of Gordon himself in 1902 (though the mysterious photo of a distinguished older gentleman, at the end of the volume, may be Gordon late in his life).
Need an every-name index to Volume I? We've prepared two: in sorted order and in order of first appearance.
Volume II (uploaded, but not yet proofread) shows our PIERCE family from 1904 to 1950. The focus is on Bob, his wife Ellie (born Ellen Wait LORD), and their son "Ricky", now the grown-up Rik Pierce -- creator of this electronic version. Bob's younger brother Paul and his family (wife Nancy, children David and Pat) also appear.
While we've succeeded in transcribing, scanning and uploading the entire album, the interface is still a work in progress. We're working intermittently on a low-graphics, no-frames version, and have almost finished Volume I -- please bear with us while the construction is under way. (If you have comments or suggestions about the presentation, we'd like to hear them.)
Also, if this album helps you in any way, please let us know. And enjoy!
