PIERCE, (Joseph White)was born at Middletown, Middlesex, Connecticut, June 5, 1805, to John and Abigail Stowe Pierce, and was raised as a farmer. When ten years old removed with his parents to Berkshire County, Massachusetts, and subsequently to Ontario County, New York. There he married Amanda Mary Heath in 1827, and soon afterwards removed to Niagara County in the same state. The following year they removed to Kirtland, Ohio.
In early Utah days he was a hard-working pioneer.
In the midst of severe persecutions, being driven from his home by mobs five different times, he has stood firm and unshaken in his religious convictions. He is the father of eleven children. His children were Elizabeth, Edwin, Mary Adeline, Catharine Amanda, Joseph Henry, Roxey Abigail, George, Isaac Riley, Adelia Delila, Lucy Jane, and Julia Ann Manetta Pierce. He is buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery.
