Notes from back of group sheet:

Alonzo Pearce was ordained deacon in 1843 at Redfield N.Y.

Alonzo Pearce and Esther Angel Pearce stopped at Burlington Des Moines Co Iowa on their way to Utah. There a child Perry Pearce was born 13 Dec 1846 and died 26 Dec. 1846.

Esther Angell Pearce died 30 Dec. 1846 at Burlington. The family stayed in Iowa for some time, coming to Utah, settling in Provo in 1852.

During this time after the death of the mother, the father Alonzo let the boy (John?), then in his 13th year, go to live with a family, whether friends or relatives I do not know and as far as I ever know he was never heard from again.

Alonzo was md 2nd to Mary Ann Gardner 30 Jan 1846.
