Obituary for Josiah Pierce Josiah Pierce Is Claimed By Death Had been unconscious Since Last Friday-- Survived by Widow and Nine Children Josiah Pierce, 82, died at the family residence, 1031 Boulevard avenue, late Thursday evening, after a lingering illness of several months duration. Several months ago he suffered a severe attack of pneumonia,and apparently recovered, but later complications set in and last Friday he became unconcious, remaining in that condition until the end came. Mr. Pierce is survived by his widow, nine children, 29 grand children, 10 great grandchildren and an aged brother and sister and sister. The children are: Mrs. MinervaWhitehead, Cabot, Arkansas; Mrs. Flora Davidson, Lebannon, Indiana; Mrs. Clara Taylor, Dreedsville. Michigan; George K. Pierce, Grand forks: Rev. J.H.

The funeral will be held at the family residence Saturday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock. Services will be conducted by Rev. R.G. Pierson, pastor of the First Baptist church of this city. Burial will be at Memorial Park cemetery. Notes for HARRIET EMALINE KUNKLE: I haven't been able to discover the mother and father of Harriet Kunkle Pierce, but there were Kunkles in the letters and pictures sent to Martha. There is a Walter Kunkle referred to as Uncle I believe by Lena. Martha must have had a request from a Newton Kunkle for the names and dates of the family of Josiah and Harriet. She had them in an envelope addressed to Mr. Newton Kunkle, RR 1, Box 150, Indianapolis,Indiana. Walter and May Kunkle were from Indianapolis also. An Olive Kunkle married and Al Kellermeier and lived in Indianapolis. So it appears the Kunkle connection may come through Indianapolis, Indiana. I know a couple of years before Martha died she flew back to Indianapolis to visit her sister Lena and spent some time with her mother's family according to one of the letters. Martha was living in Spokane with her daughter Mary Miller at the time. Obituary for Harriet Emaline Pierce Mrs. J.

CLARA MAY3 PIERCE (JOSIAH2, UNKNOWN1) was born March 11, 1871, and died May 27, 1940. She married UNKNOWN TAYLOR. Notes for CLARA MAY PIERCE: CLARA MAY PIERCE TAYLOR - married unknown Taylor. Josiah's first marriage to Elizabeth Price Pierce produced a Clara May Pierce. I am convinced now that this is Clara M. Taylor . ( Clara in her letters communicated that she had a sister, Flora. Josiah's first marriage also produced a Flora Belle Pierce. Armed with that and the fact that Clara Taylor had a middle initial M. convinced me that it was more than a coincidence - they had to be the same people.) In 1933 she was living in Breedsville, Michigan. CHILDREN: HARRY M. TAYLOR - resided in Breedsville, Mi in Martha's address book. WESLEY TAYLOR HAROLD H. TAYLOR - married.

She married HENRY JOSEPH CUNNINGHAM RICE 1918 in Ashland, Kansas. Notes for MARTHA ONOR PIERCE: There were three letters to Mrs. Martha Rice (or Mrs. Joe Rice) from Martha's mother - Harriet Emaline Kunkle Pierce. Martha lived in Ashland, Kansas with Joe at the time. The first letter was dated March 29, 1917. This was about a year after Josiah's death. The letter was from Grand Forks,1031 Blvd Ave, North Dakota. It sounded as if the family had moved there from Kirklin, Indiana. Perhaps after Josiah died. The second letter was written April 19, 1917. The last letter from her mother was dated April 23, 1918. This was about 4 months before her death. All were from Grand Forks, North Dakota. All were signed Mother. Joe Rice married Martha Onor Pierce and lived for a short period in Ashland, Kansas and also it appears in Grand Forks, North Dakota. They then moved to Shasta County, Shasta(Redding), California. Joe was a rancher/farmer. He raised sheep. Before marrying and coming to California he was part owner in a ranch near Ashland, Kansas with his brother William John "Tuck" Rice. He sold his part to his brother. Martha and Joe remained in Redding on the ranch until Joe died. Martha stayed for a while. She later sold the ranch and gave up a state pension of $80/month to go and live with her daughter and son in law in Spokane, Washington. Martha was a god loving woman and a Baptist. She often donated contributions to her church and to causes for her church -Voices for China and Asia,etc. She once received two letters from Germany, written in German. They were thank yous from families for care packages she had managed to give them. Martha had little money but always made do. She died in 1958. Addresses: Mrs. Florence Parrott Plymouth, Mi (Joe's Friend) Kit Rice Route 1 Box 3276 Redding,Ca Phone: Chestnut 1-5067 Terrence & Mira Watthall(Joe Aquaintence?) R. Route Ridge Farm, Il story written by Martha Pierce Rice titled "A True Story". It has no date or place on the letter and was never finished. I am typing in the first two paragraphs. "My people were farmers, there were six children in our family 4 boys and 2 girs; we lived in a closely settled neighborhood, father owned 80 acres. 40 faced the county road the other 40 lay first behind it. The man that owned 80 acres, 40 across the road from us and 40 on our side joining us on the west died with cancer and his widow devided the land with her five children. She kept 1/3(I think this is what she wrote) with the home on it. One son and one daughter builded on their acres. The others sold theirs, one daughter to her sister 1 son to his bro. The other daughter's acres joined us; she sold to a working man and he builded a home on it. Our building were in the west corner of our 40 so there were only our garden and west side of our yard, his garden and east side of his yard between our houses. Prices owned 20 acres across the road and his buildings were about mid way of his I O A(this is what it looks like anyway) house. The neighborhood was called String Town, by strangers passing through. We had a church within one and one half mile of our home and mother took us there to Sunday School and church services nearly every Sunday unless we were sick and sent us when she was to weary to go. Father very seldom went to church." The rest is about how the children played and worked and a little bit about how they were raised. The part about the Prices living near them caught my attention. Too bad no places or dates. More About MARTHA ONOR PIERCE: Fact 1: 1934, Melville, Mississippi Fact 2: 1918, Ashland, KS Children of MARTHA PIERCE and HENRY RICE are: 12. i. MARY MARTHA4 RICE, b.
