There is a lot of information about 1st Wife Nancy E Abercrombie Pierce on the www.ldpierce.com website. That union produced 10 or 11 children and I have not gotten them all added here to find a grav.

Andrew Jackson Pierce married second wife in 1882.
Sara Elizabeth Bilbo Dyer. He was 67 years old when he married her. He lived 10 more years and died when he was 77.
There were no children from this Union. Mrs Dyer and 4th husband did sue the children of AJ Pierce see ldpierce.com/andrew.html page

Obituary of Andrew Jackson Pierce 
dated 24 May 1892 Johnson County Texas:
"Mr. A.J. Pierce died at his home May 20, and was buried in the family Cemetery, by the side of his former wife [Nancy E Abercrombie]. He was born in Hall County, Georgia. July 15, 1815, and so was 77 years old. In 1866, after losing all his property, because of the war, He moved to Texas and settled in, what was then in the Wild West. He settled and improved the farm in Johnson County, in 1866 on which he died. In early life he married and he and his wife had born to them eleven children, five sons and six daughters. Three of their sons and six of their daughters are still living. There are of his descendents, forty-five grand children and twenty great grand children. Mr. Pierce was a member of the Baptist church. He loved his family and friends. He was bold and fearless in the expression of his option and never deceived anyone. He leaves a wife [Sarah Ann Elizabeth Bilbo] and many friends to mourn him. The family has the sympathy of this community, but the hope and trust sustains us that when life's parting comes, that beyond the fleeting dust the severed links are gathered home and God, in love and patient care, will reunite them over there."
 
Thse New insertions from John Hemstra of CA descendant of Sarah Bilbo Pierce Dyer 2nd wife of AJ Pierce Another obituary is also given at the same site. It has some factual errors but adds some interesting details:
Old Settler Dead. Capt. A. J. Pierce died at his home on Friday Last. His home nestled in the timber overlooking the Brazos. He was born in Hale (Hall) county, Georgia on the 16th of July 1815. His home was under the shade of mountains where their peaks kiss his new home above. He was one who lived to love a friend, his friends. He feared no enemy. In 1851 Capt. Pierce went to California. He was there when the golden gates were opened to the outside world. He came to Johnson County in 1866. He selected his home where the bluff banks of the Brazos reminded him of his Native hills. He has gone to his grave. He leaves behind forty-five grand children and twenty great grand children. Two of his boys fell in battle, and sleep under the soil of their native state. His aged wife, who was before she took his name, Nancy C Abercrombie [an error, it was Sarah AE Bilbo who was his wife at the time of his death], lives to mourn his going. Their Children, C.A. Pierce, L.D. Pierce, Mrs. G.W. Pierce and Mrs. Roddie [Rhoda] Wilbanks are here to mourn the loss of a father and friend. We write this only as a token of respect to him who is one of our mourned dead. May the youngest of his great grand children only live to emulate his example."
Comments: I cannot find any record of military service and thus have no idea where he got the rank Capt.  The first (and more accurate obit) makes no mention of his travel to California or return from there to Texas.

These two obituaries contain at least one bit of conflicting information. The first names His wife as Nancy C Abercrombie and states she was living. The second states he was buried beside his former wife, but also states that he is survived by his wife. I believe he was married only once and this to Nancy Abercrombie. (in this case Dorman was incorrect) (This analysis furnished by my almost cousin Dorman Thomas of Arl, TX now deceased )
