Jo Anna dale jdale@@swbell.net- Jesse Allen Pearson was born November 22, 1845, in Middle Tennessee, and moved to Quitman (Van Buren and Cleburne Counties) in Arkansas when he was nine years old. His parents were Jesse Allen Pearson (Sr.) and Mary Elizabeth Harrison. Jesse (Jr.) was the youngest of thirteen children. His education was in the public schools around Quitman. When the War broke out, Jesse joined the Confederate Army. He enlisted as a Private in Company E, 8th Arkansas Cavalry, at Conway, Arkansas. When he enlisted on December 1, 1863, he gave his age as 18. He was five feet, seven inches tall, with fair complexion, blue eyes, and light hair. He was with General Sterling Price's army at the end of the war. His regiment was surrendered at Jacksonport, Arkansas, by Brigadier General M. Jeff Thompson to Major G.M. Dodge of the Department of the Missouri. He was paroled June 5, 1865. On the Federal census record of 1870, Jesse was shown as a boarder in the household of W.W. Garner, in Red River Township, Van Buren County, Arkansas. His occupation was a teacher. However, on later census records of 1880, 1900, and 1910, his occupation is shown as farming. According to his obituary, "He was a member of the Masonic Order for about 50 years, and lived up to its tenets of right, honesty, and charity during all that period."
