Pearl and her husband moved from Georgia to to Texas with their two small children in 1977.  While living in Georgia, the push to get county history books published for all counties across North America had inspired her to start working on genealogy and her desire to complete the family study was strong.  In 2003, after retiring from American Airlines, she resumed her research, taking several long road trips to visit courthouses, cemeteries and other dark corners in several states including Tennessee (her home state), Kentucky, Alabama, Oklahoma, Virginia, California, and Missouri.  She also teaches genealogy classes to seniors at The REC in Grapevine.
