Pearson's work is prone to errors (children assigned to wrong parents, etc). He was a college professor.
It has been reported that he used students to do some of the genealogies. Use this book only to get clues
to be confirmed in other sources. To use the site's search engine, click HERE. Be aware that it misses
names. Because of the way that the book is arranged (surname is listed, then given names are listed
below in a column), a search will find only the first given name in the list. In order to check the other
names, you must use the link that the search provides.
