Edward's Children - the Next Generation

I think I've entered about all I have at this time on William Pierce. His info is documented in FTM and most of it on this blog. Moving on to Edward's children now I have the following issue recorded:

William Henry Pierce
Mary Jane Pierce
Emma Pierce
James F. Pierce
Thomas F. Pierce

I have five children recorded and will start with the oldest, William Henry.

William Henry Pierce

William was born about 1831. I only have the basics on William - he married Susannah April 5, 1857 at approximate age 26. They were married 13 years and he died July 5, 1870.
He is buried in Chester Rural Cemetery, Section N, Lot 117, grave 5.

Delaware County American - April 22, 1857
Marriage: In Upland, on the 5th inst. By Rev. Mr. Wilder, Mr.
W.H. Pierce of Chester to miss Susannah Harris of Upland

Delaware County Republican - July 8, 1870
Death Notice

In Chester, on Tuesday, the 5th inst., William Henry, son of E.D. and
Jane Pierce, in the 39th year of his age. The relatives and
friends of the family are respectfully invited to attend the funeral,
from his late residence, No. 529 Front Street, on this Friday afternoon,
at 2 o'clock.

His mother Jane died in 1857 so it's interesting that his obit does not state his "late mother" or that she predeceased her son.
