There is an acount from a family member of the Mears family of Hacks neck, Pungoteague area, estern shore Virginia in the book "Hacks Neck and its people past and present" by James Egbert Mears (1963) F86325.58. On page 30, a fairly elaborate desscription of Richard Mears family (Seaside) exist who made a will 30 Dec 1817 and probated 27 Dec 1824 Accomac Co. No wife is mentioned but the children appear the same. The names Kellam and Fisher are prominent families of the Pungoteague area as well mentioned in the account.
Another acct of the Accomac Mears family is "Ames Mears and Allied families of Accomac Co Va" by Lucy Ames Edwards (1967) Eastern Shore VA Historical Society includes a fairly elaborate Pedigree chart back to the immigrant Bartholomew and Mary Mears (will 1682 and 1705, respectively).
I too am interested in this line from the 1790 and 1795, respectively, in Norfolk Co Va wills of Elijah and his wife Elizabeth Mears.
I have some PDF digital copies of these accounts on my web site at http://karenandmike.biz/graphics/mears/ and my email is at firstname.lastname@example.org
