    Fred Pearson was my Great Great Grandfather. I would like a link to some information about his ownership of those mountains. My family and I have been trying to gather information on the Pearson side of our family for years. The search has been amped up in the past few years…My grandfather, Freds grandson, is in ill health. Any help in our quest for knowledge would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank You!!!
