Warren E. Pierce:
1860 Census-daughter Ann, 16, born in NY - daughter Phebee W. , 9, born in Wisc. Indicates Warren Pierce came to Wisconsin after 1844 and before 1851. But he didn't marry Jane til 1849. Ann must be his daughter from a previous marriage (to Lucy M. Streeter in 1844.)
1860 Census says very clearly that Warren was born in Vermont.
Occupation - "Farmer" - value of Real estate - $300.00. Value of personal Estate - $200.00.
Also listed in the Warren Pierce household on the 1860 Census is Sarah Willard, age 13, born in NY.
We have determined this is the niece of his wife, Jane.
1850 Census - Waterloo, WI - two of Warren's brothers, George and Abel are listed.
It appears the sister of Abel's wife, Harriet Vanderpool, married Charles Streeter, a probable brother to Warren's 1st wife, Lucy Streeter.
1850Census - Warren is listed in Dane Co, York twsp.
His name is misspelled "Orrin Peirce"
but family gives him away and living next door is Eliza, Jane's sister!

[Gilley or Gilla Bundy was divorced in 2 May 1863 in Vernon County from Bundy
These children are most likely hers from previous marriage and not Pierces.]
The children on the 1870 census were his wife's children by her first marriage to William Bundy. Either the census taker mistakenly assumed that they were Warren Pierce's children or the couple misrepresented them as his children.
Gilla was divorced from William Bundy in 1863. I found the divorce record in the Vernon County Circuit Court April Term 1863, to wit May 2d 1863 - 6th day of term. The original court record book is at the Wisconsin Regional Archives in the library at the University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse. Most Mason researchers assumed that she died before 1880 since William Bundy had a different wife by that time. Gilla actually died in 1898 in Marshall County, Iowa.
I found the record of Warren Pierce's marriage to Gilla Bundy on the following microfilm:
Lafayette County (Wis.) registration of marriages,1854-1881(Names arranged by first letter of husband's surname, then by date.), FHL microfilm 1276064.
He apparently abandoned Gilla, too. I did not know what became of him after the 1870 census
