Briles Descendant Runs for Thomasville City Council
Joel Pierce is running for City Council of Thomasville, NC. The Nonpartisan plurality election is set for November 8, 2011 where seven seats are up for grabs. Joel Pierce is a Briles descendant, twice! He is the son of Nolan Irvin & Bonnie Grubb Pierce. His lineage dates back to Ansel & Mary Briles Pearce (Mary, Frederick Briles, Conrad Briles) and through his grandmother's family, Millie Barnes Pierce. Her line also goes back to Conrad & Margaret Rush Briles because her grandparents are Henry and Elizabeth Kindley Barnes (Elizabeth Kindley, Jacob, William, Shadrach and Margaret Briles Kindley, Michael Briles, Conrad Briles). Joel's election page is on Facebook and on the Internet at Joel Pierce.com. We wish Joel the very best in his bid for city council!
