James Mears, Scranton, Lackawanna, PA
Posted by: Tracy Dallmeyer (ID *****2971) Date: February 07, 2011 at 16:11:35
  of 1060

I am related to a James Mears from Scranton, PA and I am stuck. "My" James Mears married Anna Ford (1861-1911) and had 5 daughters. I am related to the oldest daughter, Catherine Mears (1883-1965.) JM was either from PA or Ireland. I have performed several searches and see that James may have been married earlier and possibly had other children. However, since I cannot find any documents on JM, I am not sure if they are the same person. My JM would have died between 1891-1899. (1891 was the birth year of his youngest daughter and on the 1900 census, Anna Ford is married to Patrick Martin and has a child born in 1900.)

If you know anything about my relative, I would really appreciate the assistance. Thank you!
