Title: Samuel S. Pierce and his Mother
Description: Samuel S. Pierce, (1870-1936) posing with his mother, Hettie (Starks) Pierce (1829-1944). Hettie was 115 when she died. Hettie, Samuel, his wife Mollie, and their son Theodore moved into the house at 1438 Williamson Street in 1910; the house number was changed in 1941 to 1442 Williamson. Theodore Pierce (1906-1999) was actually Sam and Mollie's nephew, but they raised him as their son. Ted also served as an Executive Messenger in the Capitol, and lived in the house until 1998 (for 88 years).
