Birth: Mar. 18, 1849
Death: Jul. 3, 1910
Snohomish County
Washington, USA

Source: The Stanwood Story, V. 1, written for the Stanwood News by Alice Essex, 1971, pp. 61-62.

She gave her name to the town in 1877:
Clara Stanwood Pearson, the woman who in 1877 shared her name with this then-struggling trading post, died at the family home on the corner of Pearson and Market Streets on July 3, 1910. The stately residence still stands as a landmark of pioneer days and is now known as Heritage House, owned by Mr. and Mrs. Frank Noble.

Mrs. Pearson's death was mourned by the community for it was her vision, courage and indomitable spirit that had led the fight for the first grade school on North Street. Without her esprit de corps, Stanwood youngsters no doubt would have continued for some time in scattered one-room schoolhouses.

Mrs. Pearson's influence also spread to other community improvements. She helped establish the first Sunday School and promoted beautification of the village by planting shade trees along the streets and on city property. Born in Massachusetts, she came to Puget Sound via the Isthmus of Panama at the age of 19 to marry D.O. Pearson, who had settleed in Coupeville. When they moved to Stanwood, she was one of three white women living along the Stilly.
