Our new Group B family has an unusual origin for those at the Pierce DNA southern U.S website.  The family has its oldest Pearce ancestor in Shropshire, England. 

There is no match of this family with anyone at the Pierce dna North website.  The line as shown in the pedigrees is all that is currently known about the ancestry of this family. 

This is our first jump across the Atlantic for those in the Pierce south project with a DNA match. 

Group K continues to add matches.  The oldest Pierce ancestor in this new line is George S. Pierce (Pearce) b. about 1831 in Georgia.

A couple of new participants have matching DNA and form a new Group SS.  They do not know their common ancestor at this time.
