States: New York: Cattaraugus
Help! I am stuck! Looking for information on the family of David S. Sears born abt 1837 (according to 1860 census) in New York. Traveled to Illinois as an adult where he married Harriet Crose in 1857 in McLean County. He was a blacksmith. He had 3 children: George, Effie, and Charles. I believe he died between 1862 and 1867 (wife remarried in 1867). Unfortunately no probate records, death records, land records--marriage records do not list parents. I think it is possible that he came from Cattaraugus county---there is a Nathan Sears that was also in McLean County and would have arrived from NY about the same time as David (seems very coincidental). Any information apprectiated. Thank you very much.
