"History of Audrain County" Pages 519 and 520.
"Rufus Stanley Pearson was a very prominent early settler of Audrain County, Missouri arriving there in 1834 with his parents. He was born in Burke County, North Carolina in 1826 and reared on the farm near Mexico, Missouri. With his two younger br others, Marshall C. and Clinton P., he owned one of the earliest general merchandise stores in the area. It was located in Vandalia, Missouri. In 1850, with gold fever running high throughout the country, he headed west to California with many othe r men of the County to try his luck in the gold fields. But, like so many others, he returned home in a year or so poorer but wiser. When he left, his wife Lucy Ann stayed behind with their new baby Charles who was only one year old. In later years , Mr. Pearson became a Charter member of the Vandalia Triple Alliance Camp #79 organized November 10, 1883. He attended the first annual meeting of the Old Citizens Association held in June 1883 in Mexico, Missouri."

"It was on June 14, 1848, that Rufus S. Pearson and Lucy Ann Ward were married at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Ward. Mrs. Pearson was born in Callaway County, near Williamsburg, and her father was a leading pioneer blacksmith , and people came as much as 100 miles to have him make one of his augers he was famous for making. The Ward home then stood where the S. and N. Phillip store stands and the ceremony was performed in the parlor by Rev. Theodore Boulware, with thebr ide attired in a white Swiss dress she had made herself, and the bridegroom, one of the most desirable beaus of the section, wearing a full dress suit. The Pearsons lived for a time where the Missouri Military Academy now stands, and when they buil t their home, there was a woods between their home and the town, and a dense forest behind it. Mrs. Pearson lived until September 5, 1917, when she passed away in her eighty-seventh year."

This is a prime example of a census taker and/or informant gone wrong. This has so many errors it was very difficult to find. The most glaring error is the name of the head of household. Should be Rufus S. Pearson. I would have discarded this one but I didn’t want anyone having to waste time looking for it in the future. Even with the errors I am sure this is our Rufus S., Lucy, George and Nina Pearson.. -Jane

AUDRAIN'S OLDEST MARRIED
COUPLE LIVED IN MEXICO.
Almost all of the happy, young
couples that are married these
days wish they would live together
for an indefinite period. Golden wed-
ding anniversaries are not so un-
usual but it is seldom one hears
of a couple enjoying sixty four years
of wedded life.
Such is the history of Mr. and
Mrs. Rufus Pearson, of this city,
the oldest married couple in the
county. Mr. and Mrs. Pearson
Pearson were married June 14, 1848,
a long time before most of the citi-
zens of Mexico were born. It was
in the good old days that we read
about and when they were very
young.
Mr. and Mrs. Pearson are as hap-
py today as any young couple, just
married and they look upon one an-
other with even more love and ad-
migration than when they first start-
ed Life's journey together.
They were married at the home of
the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. C.
R. Ward - Mrs. Pearson was Miss
Lucy Ann Ward - Their house then
standing about where S & N Phil-
lip's store now stands. The cere-
mony was performed at 8 o'clock in
the evening in the parlor of the
home by the Theodoric Boul-
ware an old hardshell Baptist min-
ister.
Miss Ward was only 18 years
of age, had for her bridesmaids Miss
Nancy C. Ward, her sister, who
was later Mrs. Dingle, and Miss
Mary Kirkpatrick. The bride was
dressed in a white Swiss dress
which she had cut and made her-
self. This fact her husband tells
with great pride.
Mr. Pearson then a young man of
22, and one of the most desirable
beax of this section was attired
in a full dress suit. No ring was
used in the ceremony and the en-
tire wedding was very simple, yet
most impressive.
After the ceremony the guests -
about 50 in number - enjoyed a de-
lightful and plentiful supper and re-
mained to make mery until late
in the night.
"In those days there was no charly
arling and "cutting up" like there is
now," said Mrs. Pearson, "and we
had a great deal better time.
After the ceremony Mr. and Mrs.
Pearson lived with Mr. Ward until
November when they moved to
where the Missouri Military Academy
now stands and lived in the house
which was recently moved. At that
time there was woods between their
home and town and a dense forest
behind it.
At the time of his marriage Mr.
Pearson was in the dry goods busi-
ness with his brother-in-law S. B.
Gass.
Mrs. Pearson, who celebrated her
83rd birthday, Jan. 4th, of this year,
came to Mexico in 1845 with her fa-
ther C.R.Ward. She was born in
Callaway county, near Williamsburg,
but her father moved to Audrain coun-
ty when she was very young.
Mr. Ward was one of the leading
pioneer blacksmiths in Missouri and
and people came as far as 100 miles to
have him make an auger. He was
noted for the famous augers he
made and many of them are still in
use, so carefully were they manufac-
tured.
Mr. Pearson came from North Car-
olina and settled with his father,
John A. Pearson in Callaway coun-
ty near Concord. His father was a
farmer and blacksmith and was later
was County judge for a long while.
Rufus Pearson came to Mexico
with his father in 1835, when he
was nine years old. In his early man-
hood days he was a printer and
practiced his trade in Paris, on the
Missouri Sentinel. That paper is now
the Paris Mercury. He later went in-
to the dry goods business at Fulton.
Mr. Pearson will be 87 years of
age January 29.
Mr. Pearson is one of the oldest
residents of Mexico and an authority
on Audrain and Mexico history. In
speaking of Mexcico, in the early
days he says:
"My father, John A. Pearson, came
to Mexico in 1835 and built a home
on what is now known as Highland
Addition. It was a double log cabin.
The white folks lived in one room
of the cabin and the negroes in the
other.
We had plenty of corn bread,
fat pork, venison, wild turkey, prai-
rie chickens and quails and also wild
ducks and geese in season.
"Our nearest neighbors were, Wil-
liam Levaugh, W. C. West, Ackley
Day, Thomas Hook, Francis Armis-
tead, William Jesse, Richmond Pear-
son, Joel Haynes and John C. Mar-
tin. The latter owned a horse mill
which ground our meal.
"The nearest settlement on the
south was four miles; ten miles on
the east, twenty miles on the west
and twelve north. Wolves roamed
there in the daytime and occasional-
ly a bear was seen even after the
county was organized and the town
of Mexico established.
:Lots in Mexico were laid off and
sold by Mansfield & Smith. J. B.
Morris built the first house and R. C.
Mansfield, the next. James H.
Smith in 1837, built about where J.
J. Steele's home now stands.
"For our mail, we went to Ful-
ton, and paid 25 cents postage. Lat-
er a mail route was established be-
tween Fulton and Paris and John B.
Morris was appointed postmaster here.
"George W. Turley built a house
where George Brock's home now is
at the corner of Love and Clark av-
enue. He started a store on what
afterward was known as the Harper
corner. Robt. Taylor and T. T.
Stone came about the same time.
