George Pearsall:, son of Henry Pearsall, is buried in the graveyard on the farm where he lived, and all his people for several generations lie there beside him. The few gravestones there some years ago had been removed to the yard of the Searingtown M.E. Church. The farm recently became the grounds of a mansion on the edge of the hills overlookiong the plains, the owner whereof has planted the old graveyard with a clump of evergreens so that the dead may not be disturbed. (Pearsalls, v. 3 p.1201)

Speculation on the absence of records for the Pearsall family at this time as to wills, registry of birth, weddings and deaths is that their association with Quakers led them to avoid this worldly practice. It is probable that record was kept somewhere among Friends and is yet to be discovered.

The Valentines were Dutch-English traders associated with the Pearsalls in Virginia in Isle of Wight County where they were also closely related by marriage with the Marshall family, so much so that it is generally accepted that from the marriage of a Valentine and a Marshall descended John Marshall, Chief Justice of the United States and Thomas Marshall, Vice President of the United States. He was one of the founders of Hempstead, Long Island and was engaged in the family tobacco trade. He was the son of Thomas Pearsall.
