It was named after a man named John Peirce from St Louis and that is the correct spelling for his name, it was changed later on to Pierce

Thats funny, I dont know where you get your info but I think you really need to do some research before you post on the web.... ok Janet here ya go :)
Pierce City, named after railroadman Andrew Peirce, was incorporated in 1870 as Peirce City, and then, in a thus-far unexplained historical twist, was reincorporated by a different group, again as Peirce City, in 1871. The "i" before "e" rule has influenced the spelling of Pierce City over the years, as has the widespread but mistaken assumption that the town was named for President Franklin Pierce. The spelling has been Pierce City in common usage since about 1930 or so, but the spelling was not officially changed until the 1980s
I hope this answers your question

why was the country school "Possom Trot"
named that?
My mom when to school there.
Her last name was Hunnell. My grandparents
lived down the road from the school.
I am painting a picture of it and wondered
why the school the was named that.
