Seeking info on Robert J. and Addie/Adeline M. Fears Wortham who may have lived in Potter Co. If we have traced Addie into correct line of Fears, we have information at least that some of her family died there - Percival Delmar Fears b. abt 1854 in AL died in Amarillo 4/3 1913; also a child of Addie Fears Williams who would be our Addie's niece--if we are on the right track. This is of great interest to us as we had word-of-mouth from a Wortham line that possibly our Robert & family moved into the panhandle area of TX and they lost contact with that part of the line. Our Addie was b. abt. 1846 possibly AL; may have been a physician. Hers and Percival if we've now traced into the right line were children of James S. & Adaline L. Pruitt Fears. Children of Robert J. & Addie were Mary, Putnam, Claude b. 1876, Geo. T., Lela Wortham Chastain, Addie Wortham Thurmand. I find that there were Worthams still in Potter Co very recently at least and wonder if they could be from this Wortham - Fears line. Any assistance on this difficult line would be so appreciated. Thank you, Sandra
