PIERCE, Richard

My mother's grandfather was Richard Pierce resided in Albertville, Al. When he died it was reported that his body was placed on a train and shipped to Ga. and Indians met the train and buried him in Cedartown, Ga. This would be in the early 1920's. His wife Mary Bonds Pierce is buried at Pleasant Grove in Albertville, Al. born 1861 died 1922.
My dad's grandfather was Jim England in Lawrence/Winston county, Al. He married a Mary Nicholson whose family was reported to be Cherokee escaped from the trail of tears. I think Nicholson's wife was a Peggy or Patty Farley. We have a picture of her in the family. Also one of my greatgrandmother's married a Sewell and was reported to be stolen from a stockade in Ga. during the trail of tears and they resided in Lawrence/Winston Co. around the Bankhead Forest. The England's owned a lot of property where the Pinetorch church sits and a lot of my ancestors are buried there. I would appreciate any information you could give me.
