Pearson clan has reunion On Sunday, July 19, 1981, a reunion was held for the descendants of Walter and Mollie Pearson. Fifty-six relatives were in attendance at the Transco Clubhouse. Paul Lynch, Chairman, welcomed the guests, and Richard Cowart gave the invocation and blessing prayer. A bountiful lunch was served at noon, and the afternoon was spent in happy fellowship. Some of the group journeyed to the old home place at Bald Rock. During the business meeting, the following officers were elected: chairman, Terry Simpson; vice-chairman, Milton Pearson; secretary, Sara Cotney; treasurer, Mauryce Moore. There were four births during the year: a daughter, Rachel Aimee, to Mr. and Mrs. Randall Gourdouze; a daughter, Laurie Alexis, to Mr. and Mrs. Nick Vezertzis; a daughter, Jennifer Dianne, to Mr. and Mrs. Craig Elliott; a son, Jonathan David, to Mr. and Mrs. Mark Farr. During the past year there were three marriages: Stanley Cotney to Nancy Caldwell; Morgan Pearson to Mary Cole; Steve Lynch to Cindy Hughes. It was noted that one death occurred during the year when Pearson Elliott died at his home in Roanoke. A memorial flower was presented to the family. Walter and Mollie Pearson were the parents of seven children: Ruby, Morgan, Tom, L.G. "Doc", Florence, Mary Lou, and Myrtle. Florence, Mary Lou, and Myrtle are the surviving members of this family.
