John L. Pearson
(A biographical sketch taken from One Hundred Years, The Delaware County National Bank Chester, PA 1814-1914)
John L. Pearson (1834-40), was
the son of Joseph and Elizabeth Pearson. He was born in Ridley township in
1772, and was a surveyor and conveyancer. During the yellow fever scourge
in Philadelphia in 1793, he was active in collecting contributions from
the residents of Delaware county to aid the sick and distressed in the
city, and it was through him that much of this money and goods reached the
committee of citizens, compelling Pearson to visit the plague-stricken
town. On June 21, 1802, he was commissioned a Justice of the Peace. John
L. Pearson died April 15, 1842, aged 70 years.
