Roland Sears lived in Harwich, and all his children were l)orn 
and recorded there, but were baptized in Second Church, Tar- 
mouth, to which church their parents belonged, it being more 
convenient to their residence, which was near the Yarmouth 
(now Dennis) line.

2178. iv. Eachel de Forest, b. So. East, May 9, • 1843 ; lives 
at home. 

Mr. Sears was a farmer, and lived on part of the old home- 
stead in South East, 4 miles from Brewsters on the Harlem 
railroad. 

" Mr. S. did not seem robust in his early years ; a tendency 
to asthma was with him in his boyhood, but there must have 
been much vigor in his frame. 

" He was ill comparatively little ; only two severe illnesses, 
and they of the shorter duration, and of a natm-e that might 
affect the strongest physical manhood. 

" In his early married life, in the prosecution of an avocation 
for a Uttle while followed, he was able to endure readily the 
fatigue associated with riding horseback even as far as Lake 
Erie. 

" His death was the first break in the family circle ; father, 
mother, and all the children God gave to them, have been per- 
mitted to live together till the fathei-'s four-score years have 
been reached. 

"During the summer of 1884, when the illness began sepa- 
rating him from more active care, he was disposed to give the 
reminiscences of his early life; to tell of his father, and of his 
own wishes and hopes in his young manhood, and the memo 
ries of the church service and life in the old church. 

" But especially was there always gratef iil dwelling upon the 
comforts and the blessings of his own home. 

" His children were to him pride and joy, and with that trem- 
bling of the lip and moistening of the eye, they who knew 
him the more readily recall, he would speak of their unfailing 
kindness ; of their anticipation of every want ; of how good 
God had been to him and his. 

"He did not seem to be an old man, the years had not so 
told upon him. The face was unwrinkled, and the frame was 
vigorous. Till the last summer he was permitted to be actively 
employed in the concerns of his home. 

" Wlien the difficulty of breathing, and the heart trouble 
abated, some thought him better, and there was the entertain- 
ment of hope. 

" But especially upon his own spirit as the end drew near, 
there was the conviction of approaching death. 

" He would tell the children of what he desired to have done 
upon the farm, as soon as he would not be here, wliile to his 
pastor, who was often with him, he spoke of his consciousness 



Seventh Generation. 337 

of himself as a sinner, and of his tnist in Christ as a Saviour, 
and of the absence of the fear of death. 

" It had been a growinfj peace, and as the spirit advanced into 
the depths of the shadow, the darkness had passed, clinging 
with tender affection to the beloved with him, yet content to 
go at the Father's call, so quietly the spirit slipped from earth. 

" It was as the morning hour advanced that death came. 

"And so for him ' the night passed, and the morning came.' "

"Mr. Sears began his business life as a clerk in N. Y, city. 

" In 1838 he removed to St. Louis and traveled through 
some of the Northern States engaged in different pursuits. 

"In 1848 he located in St. Louis, and entered into the mill- 
ing business with Henry Whitmore, in the Old Momantum 
Mills, on Mill Creek, continuing the business till 1869, built 
the Laclede Mills, and remodeled and rebuilt the Atlantic and 
Empire Mills. 

" In 1863 the St. Louis Elevator was biiilt, and Mr. Sears 
was one of the first Board of Directors. 

" In the fall of 1S69 Mr. Sears was elected President of the 
Board, and from tliat time the company which had previously 
had a severe struggle to maintain itself, entered upon an era of 
success, which has placed it at the present day as one of the 
largest and most successful enterprises in the West. 

" Of late years he has had charge of the Empire and Phoe- 
nix Flour Mills. 

" Few men have been more intimately connected with the 
flour and grain interests of St. Louis, and few have contributed 
as much toward making the city the important grain market it is. 

" He eschewed politics, and directed his wonderful energies 
entirely to business pursuits."

In the life of Dea. Sears there were no strikinsj events, noth- 
ing that could be called great or grand, yet tlie whole life, 
viewed in its coui-se of seventy years, leaves the impression on 
the hearts of all who knew him, of completeness, of beauty, of 
harmony ; his best eulogy is in the hearts of those who knew 
him best and longest. 

One who knew him from youth to old age, testifies that he 
was never guilty of a mean action, even as a boy ; that even 
then his conduct was irreproachable. 

He was a perfect example of a man whose life was a con- 
tinuous moral growth, and yet he sought for the deeper life 
based on faith in Christ. 

His whole speech was a witness to the need of the Christ-life 
in the soul ; but not only in words did his witness consist, it 
was in the course of his daily life, in the faithful performance 
of all his duties, that he gave testimony to Him who came to 
do His Fathers work. 

Those who loved him well, tell how scrupulously he per- 
formed every little duty in the family, and how anxious he was 
to relieve his family, and make their burdens light. 

Like the true Christian, his light threw a cheerful glow 
around his household hearth, and made his home one of hap- 
piness and content.

364 Seaes Genealogy. 

Mr. Sears removed with his father in 1798 from IS'ew Dur- 
ham, Greene co., to Meredith, Delaware co., Is". Y., and was 
married at Franklin, in the same county, to Desiar Phelps, and 
settled on a hill farm in Meredith, where all his children were 
born. 

He was bred a farmer, and followed that vocation until pre- 
vented by failing health, and the infirmities of old age. 

In 1836 he removed with his family to Ohio, and settled on 
a farm near Bucyrus, removing later to Bucyrus, where he 
lived many years. 

After the death of his wife in 1872, he went to the home of 
his only daughter, Mrs. Nicholson, with whom he has ever 
since lived, and under whose roof he died. 

His life was quiet and uneventful; he tried to do his duty, 
and lived and died an honest man. 

His death was caused by falling from a verandah to which 
he went every pleasant day to enjoy the fresh air and sun- 
shine, and the beautiful ontlook over Lake Erie and the adja- 
cent shore. 

After dinner he was helped from his chair, and made his 
way to his favorite resort. He had been out but a few min- 
utes when it was noticed that he was not in his usual place. 

Search was at once made, and he was found lying on the 
ground, to which he had fallen over the railing, a distance of 
about twelve feet. He never spoke and breathed only a few 
times before death came to his relief. 

He was as well as usual, so far as known, and his vital 
organs were apparently almost unimpaired. 

It is probable he slipped or stumbled while leaning over the 
railing, and was unable to save himself, owing to the crippled 
condition of his limbs.

Mr. Sears was educated in N. Y. city ; ordained to the Bap- 
tist ministry in 1S22, and appointed a missionary to the Indians 
by the Baptist B. of M., Jan. 17, 1821, the appointment being 
confirmed by Gov. Lewis Cass of Michigan, under army regu- 
lations, July 16, 1822, and his salary fixed at §400. 

He was appointed to teach the Ottawas, and with his wife 
arrived at Fort Wayne, Ind., August 1, 1^22, his father, Rev. 
Benjamin Sears, and his brother, I'enj. Sears, Jr., a lay min- 
ister of the Baptist Church, arriving the next day. 

Articles of religion were at once drawn up, and on August 
3, 1822, the first Baptist Church at Fort Wa}Tie was organized. 

The Rev. Corbly Martin of Staunton, Ohio, preached on 
the occasion, and the Rev. Elder Benj. Sears gave the right 
hand of fellowship. 

The members of the first Baptist Church at Fort Wayne, 
who signed the articles and thus became the founders of the 
choi'ch there, were, Isaac McCoy, Christiana McCoy, Giles

Jackson, Mary Jackson, John Sears, Mary Sears, Johnston 
Lykins, Benjamin Sears, Jr., missionaries ; and one woman of 
the Delaware tribe, one woman of the Miami tribe, and one 
black man. 

Affliction, disappointment and bereavement soon followed 
Mr. Sears. His father died at Delaware, Ohio, on return- 
ing home to New York. His wife was attacked with sickness 
pecuUar to the country and the season. 

His brother Beuiamin having labored in the mission but 
twenty-three days, was taken down, and after a protracted spell 
of typhus fever, died on the third day of November. 

Rev. John Sears and his wife left the mission soon after- 
ward — Nov. 20, 1822. 

He was settled at Franklin, N. Y., from 1S23 to 1827 ; at 
Ithaca, N. Y., from 1828 to 1S30 ; Mecklenburg, N. Y., 
from 1832 to 18i2 ; and at Newfield, N. Y., from 1843 to 
1845. 

In 1846 he removed to Lake Zurich, 111., where he set- 
tled on a farm, which remained his home till his death in 
1856.

He was converted in 1828, and baptized by Kev. Washing- 
ton Kingsley. 

In 1832, he removed to Mecklenburg, and united with the 
Baptist church in that place. 

He was a faithful and efficient worker in the cause of the 
Master, though for twenty -five years deafness deprived him of 
the blessing of the spoken word. 

His end was peaceful.

Rev. Edmund H. Sears was graduated at Union Coll. in 
1S34, and at Cambridge Tlieo. School in 1S37; began to preach 
as a missionarv at Toledo, Ohio, rem'iining nearly a year, — 
was ordained Pastor of 1st Church, Wayland, Mass., 1839, in- 
stalled at Lancaster, Mass., Dec. 23, 1840, as successor to Rev. 
Dr. Nath'l Thayer; resettled in Wayland, 1848 ; installed as 
colleague of Dr. Field, Pastor of the Unit. Ch. at Weston, 
Mass., in May, 1865, and succeeded him as Pastor in Nov., 
1869. 

"He visited Europe in 1873, and was severely injured by 
the fall of a tree in his orchard in 1874. 

" He was a man of singularly modest and retiring nature. 
His health had long been feeble,' and he shrunk from personal 
display of any sort. But as a writer, as a preacher, and as a man, 
he has left a"memory which will be long and lovingly cherished 
by all who knew him. 
'".^ saintlier soul has rarely been enshrined in mortal frame. 

" But for his eirly impnired health and enfeebled voice, he 
would have been deemed eloquent in utterance, no less than in 
style, for his delivery had every attractive and impressive 
quality, within the limited spaces in which alone he dared to 
seek a hearing. 

"Those who knew him felt that his place was with the be- 
loved apostle, in closest union and sympathy with his Divine 
Master. 

" There was a sweet serenity of spirit in his whole demeanor,

speech and character, which made him in every relation of life 
unspeakably dear. 

"Simple, modest, unassuming, even .diffident, he was the 
last person to make of set purpose any manifestation of piety ; 
but a beauty of holiness so pure and radiant as his could not 
be kept under cover. 

" All who came within its sphere felt profoundly the sanc- 
tity, purity and loveHness of its cliaracter. 

" His style was the transcript of his thought and feeling. 

" There was a view of high poetic inspiration, not only in 
those lyrics which are finding their place in the worship of 
Christian sanctuaries wherever the English tongue is spoken, 
but almost equally in his prose, which is never otherwise than 
rhythmical, glowing and fervent." 

Amongst other works of his were : " Regeneration," " Atha- 
nasia," " The Fourth Gospel the Heart of Christ," " Sermons 
and Songs of the Christian Life," "Christian Lyrics," etc., 
and he edited, with Rev. R. Ellis, " The Monthly Religious 
Magazine." 

In 1857 he published an historical romance entitled "Pictures 
of the Olden Time," in connection with which he edited the 
" Sears Genealogy," from papers furnished him by Hon. David 
Sears of Boston, but which have since been found to contain 
much erroneous information based upon legends incapable of 
proof. See ante, "EngUsh Ancestry."

and to " Appleton's American Cyclopedia." 

In 1S3S, and for several years he edited the " Christian Ee- 
view," and later the "Bibliotheca Sacra." 

In 1864, he published a discourse on the " Completion of 
the first century of Yale College." 

Dr. Sears was in pubhc life from the time he returned to this 
country from Europe in 1837, until the year of his death, 1880. 

By many he was considered one of the greatest men of the 
age, and no doubt he was the foremost educator. 

He had made every effort to secure his own scholarship, as 
his parents were unable to render him much assistance, and 
what he possessed himself he earnestly wished others to share. 

He never was in the company of the voung, that on parting, 
they had not something to remember, wliich he had imparted 
in a pleasant manner. 

His social and domestic life was not so full of incidents as 
might be expected, considering his peculiar gifts of wit, conver- 
sation and quick repartee, for he was a devoted student, even 
to the last days of his career. 

Each year he was accustomed to take some one of the lan- 
guages, and renew his intimacy with it. 

He spoke and wrote with comparative ease, Greek, Latin, 
French, German, Spanish and Italian, and had a fair knowledge 
of Hebrew and Sanscrit. 

In English he was a sure authority, and it was an absolute 
pain to him to hear it badly spoken by those who should use it 
correctly. 

His wife was accustomed to say that she almost wished she 
was a book, as then she should receive his attention occasionally, 
and his children sometimes remarked that they wished company 
would come, so that the sound of his voice would be heard. 

Such things rather pained him, while he treated them as 
jests, and he would lay aside pen and paper, and endeavor to 
" be sociable," but soon he would be seen in his own familiar 
place, utterly oblivious to his surroundings. 

He had a very warm and affectionate nature, and although 
separated from all his brothers and sisters for many years, he 
seidom spoke of them without emotion. 



Seventh Generation. 373 

Of his mother be had the tenderest remembrance ; he always 
described her to his children, who never saw her, as one of the 
best and sweetest Christians. 

His father was quick-tempered and uneven in his spirits, 
bat the mother was uniform and mild. 

He had an old uncle Simeon, wlio used to bo rather severe 
with his mischievous nephews. 

Although Barnas was his favorite, he was very impatient 
at his fondness fur books, and when he found him stretched 
under the shade of a tree, or sheltered from sight in any seques- 
tered nook, he would chide him for laziness, and not unfre- 
quently lay his riding whip about the boy's legs. 

In spite of his fault-finding, however, he was proud of his 
talents, and in later life often said, he " always knew that 
youngster would make his mark." 

"While religious in the deepest and truest meaning of the 
word, Dr. Sears was heithei- sectarian or narrow minded. 

He had a bruad catholic spirit, and saw good in all men. 

When others were sitting in harshest judgment on some im- 
fortunate one, he had a word of exculpation, or a loophole for 
possible escape. 

In a little pocket diary, found in his coat after death, were a 
few rules for self-government. One was, " Criticise yourself 
severely, others mildly." Another was, '' If not able to say a 
kind thing of the absent, keep silent." 

These maxims were most faithfully observed. 

He had inherited a quick temper, but by the time his family 
were grown, he had it under perfect control. 

After he died, an old colored man-servant, who had lived 
with him many years, told his associates that he had ?iever 
heard his master speak angrily, and a colored girl who waited 
on Mrs. Sears seventeen years bore the same testimony. 

Every one loved him who served him, and while the whole 
country took sad note of his death, there was no sincerer regret 
anywhere than amongst the humble poor, who were connected 
with him in domestic life.

They were finally compelled to leave their home, and flee 
for safety to Fort Erie, their flight taking them across the 
Sciota river, and in making the passage their rude boat was 
upset, and two of his sisters and a brother were drowned. 

Reaching the fort they availed themselves of its protection 
until after Perry's famous victory, they being within sound of 
the guns during the engagement. 

They then removed to Cincinnati, and in 1814, ventured 
still further west, settling in Switzerland co., Ind. 

In 1818, they again pulled up stakes, and struck out for the 
Wabash valley, where they Anally located permanently. 

Two years after, David, who was then in his seventeenth 
year, yearning for an education, resolved to return to his native 
State. 

Accordingly, wi-apping all his spare clothing in a cotton 
handkerchief, he started for Xew Orleans on a flat-boat, where 
he arrived safely, and went round to New York by sailing ves- 
sel, from whence he proceeded to his mother's people, living 
near Syracuse. 

Something seems to have occurred which interfered with 
his plans for obtaining an education, for in the course of a year 
we And him on his way back to Illinois. The reason for this 
sudden move may, perhaps, be read in the record of his tirst 
marriage, which occurred in 1824, the woman of his choice 
being Miss Melinda Stokes of Shawneetown, 111. 

The young people commenced life on a farm of eighty acres 
near that place, and for a period of fourteen years Mr. Sears 
made farming his vocation, taking annual trips to New Or- 
leans to dispose of his produce, which he shipped by flat-boat. 

On these trips lucrative inducements were frequently held

out to him by southern traders to enter the slave trade, but to 
accept sucli a proposition was contrary to the cardinal princi- 
ples of his life, and he never attempted to better liis fortunes 
in that way. 

In 1836, Mr. Sears became possessed of a desire to see the 
Upper Mississippi vulley, of whose wonderful fertility and 
beauty he had heard so much, and leaving his home, he di- 
rected his course to the point now covered by the busy little 
city of Moline. 

Not a building; of any kind then stood there, the lovely Rock 
Island had remained as nature had made it. The swift waters 
of the mighty river flowed wastefulh- past it on either side. 

Five miles below, old "■ Black Hawk's watch tower " raised 
its head in primitive grandeur above the broad valley of the 
Rock river, whose enchained water power now turns the wheels 
of numerous industries. 

The scene unfolded to the gaze of Mr. Sears was not only 
one of surpassing loveliness, but it .also revealed, as his quick 
eye discovered, superior advantages for the location and devel- 
opment of large manufacturing interests. 

The purpose of making this his permanent abiding place 
was immediately formed. The building of a habitation and 
removal of his family and chattels was soon accomplished, and 
then began the work which has made the name of Sears 
and the history of Mohne's industrial progress inseparable. 

In 1837, Mr. Sears, in company with J. W. Spencer, Cal- 
vin Ainsworth, and Spencer M. White, commenced builduig 
the first dam across the river between Rock Island and the 
Illinois shore. 

In the fall of ISil, they erected a two-story saw-mill, and 
placed on the upper floor a run of burrs, for the accommoda- 
tion of the neighboring farmers, the nearest flour-miU at that 
time being one hundred miles distant. 

Thomas Patterson supervised the wOrk as millwright, and 
Jona. Iluntoon dressed and fitted the stones. 

In 1843, the company built the " big mill," at a cost of some 
$30,000 ; it was a four-run mill, and the machinery the best 
that could be procured at that period. 

Mr. Sears was noted for liis readiness to adopt improved 
appliances for tlie simplification and lightening of labor. 

He brought to Moline the first rotary saw used in the Mis- 
sissippi valley above St. Louis, thereby incuiring the transient 
displeasure of his employees, who looked upon it as an en- 
croachment on their rights. 



Sbventh Generation. 381 

By an arrangement with his partners, he completed the new 
structure with his own funds, liis right to the water power 
being made for a term of years. 

He controlled the mill and its business until 1848, shipping 
its products to St. Louis and lower Mississippi river points. 

About 1843. Mr. Sears in company with Charles Atkinson, 
laid out and plotted the town of Moline and its " Island City " 
subdivision, which consisted of a tract of thirty-seven acres, on 
the upper end of Rock Island, then held as a military reserve. 

This tract he secured the rigiit from Congress to enter at 
$1.25 per acre, the privilege being granted him in considera- 
tion of the benefits to navigation which had accrued from the 
building of the dam on the Illinois side. 

Mr. Sears established a foundry, erected a store and other 
buildings in Moline, and thereafter for years had a hand in the 
advancement of every project which had the material improve- 
ment of the town for its aim. 

In 1845, he built a saw-mill, and in 1859, a three-run flour- 
mill on Benham's Island, a narrow strip of land lying contiguous 
to Eock Island on the north, thereby developing a water power 
between the two islands. 

He constructed a steamboat landing below the mill, erected 
a house and other buildings on the main land, and when in 
1865, the government took possession of the island for the pur- 
pose of a National arsenal and armory, the commission awarded 
him $145,175 for his property and improvements. 

In 1855, Mr. Sears purchased one-fourth of the present milling 
site of Minneapolis, (one-fourth of forty-nine acres, and one- 
fourth of the water power,) which he sold totlie late Gov. C. C. 
Washburn for §4,00(J, and in doing so made a great mistake, 
as he frequently remarked, and as events subsequently proved. 

He at the same time built a saw-mill and furniture factory 
on Lake Minnetonka, which with a bridge contract was the end 
of his building operations until after the war. 

In August,^! 861, he enlisted in 22d Illinois Regiment, and 
served honorably as Quai-termsfster for three years. 

In 1867, he built the tine SnO-barrel mill at Sears, now ope- 
rated by his sons, David, William and George, and in 1870, a 
flour-mill at Cleveland, Mo., and another at Linden in 1 873. 

In 1875, he went to Tama City, Iowa, erected a large uiill, 
and two years later dug a canal, put in a dam and otherwise 
improved the water power at Ottnmka. 

in 1880, he constructed water-works at Red Oak, Iowa, and 
the f oUowiug year performed a like work at J ophn. Mo. 



382 Seabs Genealogt. 

Mr. Sears was a man of sterling principles. Honest in all 
his dealings, he was respected bj all with whom he had busi- 
ness relations. Lil)eral to an extreme, none ever asked his 
charity, who did not receive what he couid afford to give. 

He was a strong advocate of temperance, and practised what 
he preached. 

Up to within a few moments of his death, he seemed to be 
in the enjoyment of good liealth, in his SOtli year, apparently 
as hale and hearty as at any period of his hfe. 

The history of his life is a record of good deeds, and worthy 
of emulation .

"Wis., and was followed the next year by his wife. Tie located 
upon the land in what is now the town of Caledonia, in which 
town they resided until 1870. when they removed to the house 
in Mt. Pleasant, in which they died. 

As in their earlier years, Mr. Sears preceded his wife to the 
wilderness, she following him after a year's separation, to join 
in the trials, hardships and privations attendant upon the life 
of pioneers in a new and sparsely-settled territory ; so now, 
after a year's separation, she has followed him thrc^ngh the 
dark valley to " that better country," to enjoy with him an 
eternity of peaceful rest. Mr. and Mrs. Sears celebrated their 
golden wedding in 18S3, a rare ceremony, which will long be 
remembered by those who were privileged to be present. Mr. 
Sears was a member of the Old Settlers' Society, and was 
highly esteemed by all who knew him. His wife was a loving 
and devoted mother, a kind friend, and a sincere Christian. 
Her children, friends and neighbors, and fellow-members of 
the Old Settler-s' Society, will ever cherish her memory as fra- 

Srant of all that is pleasant and lovable. One brother survives 
er, Mr. Alvin Ames of Chautauqua, N. Y.. and two sons and 
three daughters, with thirteen grand-children.

years. 

He erected some of the best buildings in Boston ; the Chick-

He had a peculiar fancy for laiilding high steeples. 

He will be remembered by his associates as a man of large 
and muscular build, and reckless of danger, of which many 
incidents could be related. 

He was one of six to organize the Methodist Society in South 
Boston, of whom he wasthe last survivor.

bushel, making the trip with his yoke of oxen. At present he 
cultivates about 100 acres.

" The Peruvian government has decreed an immense conces- 
sion to our fellow-citizen, Major Alfred F. Sears, and it has 
been confirmed with great unanimity by the Congress. This 
concession is to build an irrigation work in the department of 
Piura, the most northern of that republic, and carries with it 
the right to 750,000 acres of public lands. The water rents 
are made obligatory on the people of the district, and are se- 
cured by their crops. 

" The studies and location of this work were made by ^lajor 
Sears in 1874 and 1875, and the grant is tlie result of a three 
years' struggle on his part and that of his friends. Important 
American and English houses have already ofi"ered to raise the 
capital. The English house is known in this country as bank-

ere and cotton brokers. The concern has a house in Pinra, 
which is a cotton-producing district. The work embraces a dam 
eighty feet high and 4,000 feet long, by which is formed an 
artidcial lake eighteen miles long and three miles wide. This 
lake will be navigable and feed navigable canals to a point near 
the coast." [Oregonian, Nov., 1889.] " It is now an open se- 
cret that Maj. Sears is the author of ' The Lost Inca,' a daz- 
zling tale of adventure in a Peruvian wonderland, containing 
graphic and accurate descriptions of natural scenery in Peru, 
fauna and flora, atmospheric phenomena and quaint folk

On the 22d Oct., 1843, Mr. Sears with his wife and four chil- 
dren removed from Camden, N'. Y., to Rome, Jefferson co., Wis. 
They suffered greatly from the lateness and rigor of the season, 
aud lost two children by small-pox. Settled in their new home 
they had a severe struggle to maintain themselves for the first 
two years, until they could get the ground cleared, aud crops 
planted and harvested. 

In 1858, at the request of her pastor, Mrs. Sears wrote a 
long and pathetic account of their trials and tribulations, which 
was read to the Sunday School in Rome, Wis., and which I 
much regret not having space to print here.

Mr. Sears studied at "Waterville, Me., and Amherst, Mass. ; 
was a teacher, and Principal of Gallia Academy, Gallipolis, 
Ohio, for 11 years, and of Elgin Academy 11 years, when he 
retired, and now resides in Chicago, 111., engaged in real estate 
business. 

Prof, and Mrs. Sears took charge of Elgin Academy under 
unfavorable circumstances. The attendance had been low ; 
the growing popularity of the public schools interfering with 
its prosperity ; a debt was hanging over it, and the enthusiasm 
of its friends had waned. 

They brought to the work just the qualities needed ; were 
quick to perceive what to do, and proceeded to the work in 
hand with directness and energy. 

The debt was paid, the grounds improved, the students came 
in greater numbers, the school was advertised, the alumni inter- 
ested, and the students themselves began to help the work of 
building up. 

The school grew to number more than 200 students ; each 
year something was added to the apparatus and to the grounds; 
each year a larger class was graduated, and the school was ele- 
vated to a standing among the best in the State. 

Prof, and Mrs. Sears won the confidence of the community, 
and compelled the respect and love of all with whom .they 
were associated.

As teachers, they were eminently successful ; and as business

Mr. Sears is connected with the house of John H. Prav. 
Sons & Co., wholesale and retail carpet dealers in Boston. 
Both his daughters are fine musicians, and have played in pub- 
lic since they were eight years of age. 

From the " Boston Journal" of June 30, 1885, I cHp : 

" Tussle with a Bcrglar, He enters a south end residence, 
hut is pitched headlong from, a window. 

" Mr. David B. Sears, who lives at 58 Chester square, had a 
lively tussle with a burglar early Friday morning, and suc- 
ceeded in throwing him from the chamber window. 

"The robber fell heavily to the brick yard below, breaking 
his leg and stunning him. He was carried off by two confed- 
erates who were waiting for him, and all three are still at large. 

" Mr. Sears and his wife occupy a room on the tirst tlour. 
facing Northampton street. He is usually a heavy sleeper, but 
Friday morning he awoke suddenly and saw a man creeping' 
stealthily through the window. He had climbed up from the 
yard by means of a trellis, and was crawling noiselessly into 
the room when Mr. Sears saw him. The latter sprang froni 
his bed, and the burglar arose to defend himself. Mr. Sear? 
struck out with both fists, and planted them squarely in t!u. 
burglar's face. The force of the blow was sufficient to knocic 
him headlong through the open window. 

"There was a dull thud, and when Mr. Sears looked out lie 
saw the fellow lying where he fell, groaning as if in great pain. 
At that moment two confederates looked through the gate, bi-t 
dodged back when they saw Mr. Sears. Bnt a moment later. 
having assured tiiemselves probably that he had no tire-arnij. 
they rushed to where their wounded pal lay and dragged him 
out of the yard. This was at 2:30 o'clock. Mr. Sears called 
for the police, but as no officer came round he went to bea 
again. 

" An hour later an officer saw tracks where some one had 
been dragged through the street, and following them found a 



Eighth Generation. 517 

man lying on the sidewalk on Camden street, and asked him 
what he was doinor there. lie replied that he liad been on a 
spree, and had fallen and broken his leg. The officer felt of 
the limb and assured himself that it was really bn)ken. His 
charitable instinct led him to go for an ambulance. 

" Neighbors who had been watching this little episode say 
that the otficer had been gone but a few minutes, when two 
men drove up hastily with a horse and buggy, and lifting the 
helpless man into the carriage, drove ofi at a furious gait. 
When the officer came back with the ambulance, he hunted in 
vain for the unfortunate individual whose leg was broken."^ 

The burglars were afterward arrested, and are now aervdng 
terms in the State's prison.

Endowed by nature with an instinctive love of poetry, Mr. 
Sears early dropped into the habit of rhymino;, jotting down his 
thoughts on paper, or as often happened, when in the woods, 
on birch bark. 

Under the pseudonym of " Nessmuk," he has written much 
for the "Spirit of the Times," and "Forest and Stream," and 
has published a work entitled " Woodcraft," and a volume of 
poetry called " Forest Runes." 

During the Civil war, Mr. Sears served in the "Bucktail" 
Regt. Pa. Vols., and was discharged for physical disability at 
Camp Curtin, Harrisburg, Pa. How resides in Wellsboro, Pa.

Mr. Sears was a mere lad when he began, as he expressed it, 
to shift for himself. He worked for several years on a farm, 
and learned the shoemaker's trade before he was fifteen. In 
the spring of 1851, he removed to Wellsboro, Tioga co., Pa., 
and was for many years a partner with his brother George in 
the shoe business. His career of thirty-six years was marked 
with several reverses, but he kept up good courage, and ener- 
getically labored to surmount all difficulties. 

Mr. Sears was a quiet, unassuming man, and possessed many 
excellent qualities of mind and heart. He was a good citizen, 
and a steady, faithful Christian worker. For more than twenty 
years he was a member of the Meth. Epis. Church, and Supt. 
of Sunday School in the country district for years lie was a 
kind and indulgent husband and father, a faithful, helpful son, 
and brother.

they soon after moved to Petersham as Marlboro has no record of them

ID Lucy, b. Aug. 16, 1797; m. Noyes P. Gregory; d. Feb. 21, 1830. 

The record in the old family Bible at Plattsburg shows six more chil- 
dren: John, Sally, Electa, Charles, Roswell and Hannah, but it is clearly a 
mistake as they already had a John and a Charles, then living. Joel had 
an Electa so it seems more than likely they were all his and we have dis- 
Dosed of them accordingly. Mrs. Haile thinks this the correct solution.

APPENDIX. 



Other Families of Sears. 

In the course of my searches for members of the Yarmouth 
family, I have accumulated much data relative to divers other 
families, some perhaps deriving from Richard Sares of Yar 
mouth, but so far not certainly identified, and others perhaps 
distantly connected with him, though not in lineal descent. 

For the benefit of future genealogists, I will briefly notice 
them. 

1. 

ALEXANDER SEAES' (Seers, Scares,) of Salem, Mass., 
Inv'y filed by Hilliard V^eren and Thos. Rootes, Salem, June 
7, 1667, £61 8 6. "Wife Mary, Exec'x, mentions sons Robert 
and Alexander. He m. Salem, before 1665, Mary Lemmon, 
dau. of Robt. L., (who made his will Aug. 2, 1665, proved 
Jane 25, 1667, in which he names dau. Mary Sears,) she bap. 
Salem, Apr. 7, 1639 ; m. 2d, Steph. Searle, before Nov. 26, 
1667. Sep. 23, 1670, Stephen Haskett of Salem, brought suit 
against " Stephen Searle and wife Mary, adm'x, estate of her 
late husband, Alex. Sears, for £1:0, paid for her to several men 
of debts due them from said estate." ' ' Mary Searle, sometime 
y' wife of Alex. Seers," was witness in a case against AJlester 
Greime and Sarah Lambert, Nov. 26, 1667. 

Alex. Sears was probably not many years the senior of his 
wife, (she horn about 1639,) and most likely had not long been 
in this country at the date of his marriage, which took place 
about 1656. His son Alex'r is sometimes called " Sandy" in 
the records. Does this indicate Scotch descent l Children :

Sears were adm. members of Old South Ch., Jan. 11, 1712-13, 
and were soon dismissed to New North Ch. At the ordina- 
tion of Rev. John Webb, first minister of that church, in 
1714, " the ipembers of the sister churches were entertained 
at Mr. Sears." Alex. Sears was one of the founders, and of 
the building Com. of the ]Sew North, or " Cockerill church," 
on Hanover street, in 1721, and his name appears first on the 
list of members, after the minister. May 23, 1722. He was a 
shipwright, and had a yard opposite the end of Prince street,

Sears and bis wife Rebecca were two most worthy people, who

Capt. ALEXANDER SEARS^ {_Robt?, Alex>\ b. Boston, 
May 23, 1698, bap. May 29 ; d. Mar. 17, 1758, fe. 60, gr.-st., 
Copps Hill ; in. May 2i, 1732, by Rev, John Webb to Hannah 
Grant. 

The will of Alexander Sears gives " out of personal estate to 
wife Hannah, £160, being part of what she received from her 
father; also, negro woman, Hester; all my household goods, 
plaie, household linen, except one silver tankard and two silver 
porringers, which I give to my dau. Sarah Lord. To wife 
Hannah, improvement of all my real estate, and one-half my 
real estate to her heirs and assigns, to do with as she thinks 
proper; also my wearing apparell. To my dau. Sarah Lord, 
all those things I purchased for her housekeeping, and all other 
things necessary to be provided out of my personal estate, and 
the other half of my real estate after my wife's decease. 

"All else to be divided between them." 

The will of Hannah Sears, widow of Alexander Sears, gives 
" all to my dau. Sarah Lord and grand-son Jonathan, except 
negro woman Hester, who is given her bed and bedding, and 
£15, and if she chooses not to be free, and to live with her (my) 
daughter, is to be secured from being a charge, and is not to be 
sold to any one she don't like, but to choose for herself." 

A fire broke out at widow Sears' house and barn on Charter 
street, April, 1759. Children :

20. ii. Sarah, b. Boston, Aug. 17, 1734; pub. Sep. 14, 1757, 
to Jonathan Lord. 



Deborah Siers was bap. in Old South Ch., Boston, Nov. 
20, 1686 ; and a George Siers was a petitioner for a license as 
retailer in Boston, 1732. I find no further mention of either. 



Appendix. 569 

Letters of adm'n were granted Feb. 9, 1651-2, to John Sun- 
derland on estate of Mary Sears of Boston, " her husband, 
Daniel Sears, being at sea." There is no mention of children, 
or other heirs. May 17, 162G, license to marry was granted 
Dan'l Sears, (Seeres in margin,) of Stepney, Midd., Eng., sailor, 
and Elizabeth Herring of same, and they were married in the 
parish church next day, he being called " of Eatcliffe, sailor, 
and she of Ratcliff Hidiway, maiden." It has been suggested 
that he may be the JDaniel Sears of Boston, 1651 ; if so, he 
apparently married again. John Sunderland was a parchment 
maker in Boston, and agent for John Scottoway ; he removed 
to Eastham, and ra. 1665, Tamsen Mayo, widow, whose dau. 
by 1st husband, Tamsen Mayo, ra. Sam'l Sears. What con- 
nection, if any, between Juo. Sunderland and Mary Sears, I 
know not. 



: Soon after lYOO, we find several of the name of Sears 

in Boston, some of whom were almost surely brothers, and 
there is some reason to think that one or more were descended 
from Edmund Seare, Notary Public, who m. Eliz'h Sewell, 
dau. of Rich'd S., of Nuneaton, co. "Warwick, Eng., she b. 
1618; was living in 1648. Her uncle, Henry Sewell, settled 
in Eowley, Mass., and d. there in 1657 ; from him derive the 
Boston family of Sewells. (See Sears of Ulster co., N. Y., 
post.) 

About 1800 several families of Sears appear in Boston, but 
owing to the imperfect state of the tuwii records I have been 
unable to trace them back or determine their relationship.

About the year 1750, several families of Sears are found 
settled in various counties of Virginia. 

I do not learn that their descendants trace any connection be- 
tween the different families, but tliey have a general tradition 
that they are of English origin, except perhaps the Sears of 
Prince George co.,"who claim that their ancestor was trom 
France. While they- may be correct as to the fact, I think 
they were of English origin, though a branch may have settled 
in France. 

Some of the Fauquier co. family think their ancestor had re- 
sided for a time in Khode Island. 

PAUL SEARS^ was probably an Englishman, or of English 
descent, and perhaps resident in France. The family tradition 
is clear that four sons came from France to Virginia early in 
the eighteenth century. Children :

*' A testamony concerning Paul Sears deceast, by his daugh- 
ter Maria Sears. The scripture saith, when the Lords Judge- 
ments are in the erth the inhabetants shall learn righteousness. 

" The awfull and suden maner in which an all wise Provi- 
dence saw meet to brake the shekles of mortality to remove 
from workes to rewards this my beloved Parent, lays with 
weight on my mind that I showld make it publick for the good 
of others. He was born in Dinwidia county state of Yir- 
ginia the 14''' day of the 12*'' month 1768. His parents 
names were John and Sarah Sears who educated him in the 
Principles of the Christian religion profest by friends in which 
he was concurned to walk with circumspection. In 1794 he 
was married to Huldah Simmons a young widow with one 
child, to whome he was as affectionate a Father as he was to 
his own if any ods he rather exceeded. 



Appendix. 587 

" In 1797 my Mother came forth in works of the Ministry 
and in 1810 when their youngest child was not tow years old 
she first received a siirtiticate to travel in the exercise of her 
gift to which he freely gave her up, not withstanding the 
double care that devolved upon liira, six small children and no 
care-taker but himself witliin dores and without. His exer- 
cise and concurn for the upright walking of his family was 
freat, endeavoring to restrain them from every rong thing, all 
is restraints however positive and puncktal ware sesoned with 
}ove. 

" He had many triales to encounter in my Mothers absence 
irora home yet he all ways gave her up with a willing heart 
and encoraging language telling her that his Spirit was at times 
p^rmited to accompeny hers not only in her tride and proveing 
st^ons but also in her rejoysings. 

" Her reply would be, my dear maintain thy noble courage. 

" For 17 years of then- lives she was the most part of the 
time from home on religious service, several times visited North 
Carolina, Philadelphia, Pensylvania, Baltimore and Median, 
twice in Ohio and Indiana, once to Inglant, Ireland, Scotland 
and Walles, was near 2 years at diferent times engaged in vis- 
iting the slave holders of the State of Yerginia in a part of 
which visit he bore her Compeny and they had to remark the 
tenderness of spirit and openess of most that was found amongst 
this tyranical part of the human family, he was lirm in the 
beleaf there was no beter way to worke with the oppressor for 
the releaf of the opprest than by the spirit of Him who worketh 
by love. He bore her company in her last visit to the meetings 
of there own quarter which was finished a few weekes before 
her death. On there return home she told him her worke was 
done, and that he might prepare for a final seperation, the 
which he bore with Christian fortitude, and shortly after her 
death in the year 1827 he removed with his children to the 
state of Ohio and settled within the verge of Springborough 
monthly meeting, he had been for some years before this re- 
moval in the stasion of an elder, and tho not in that stasion 
after he came to this country yet his concurn and exercise for 
the supporte of the discipline was unabated, discoraging the 
aperauce of evil whare ever he saw it, truly a peace maker with 
all with whome he had to do. His death was occashioned by 
a fall on the 9"* day of i"" month, in the evening tlie family 
all from home but he and I, he went to pay attenshion to the 
Creatures, was on an uper flower in the barn when it gave way 
and he come down with it head for most, I herd the alarm

and ran, when I got to him he said I am killed, I said, no 
Father, he continued, I ;ini killed, all dead now from here 
down, laying his hand on the pitt of his stuminack, which was 
indeed true for he never had any more fealing in them parts 
afterward & he continued saying. Lord have mercy on my 
Soul, he said his back and breast was broke all to peasces. 
* the dearest object of my life, a destressing a sean beyond de- 
^scripsion. I had to leave hira a few minites to get assistance, 
when I returned I found him quite composed and engaged in 
l^rvent prayer, saying my time is come to leave the world all 
11 an instant, Lord be pleased to have mercy on my Soul, thou 
h£s been with me through the many trials of my life, be 
ploasd to be with me now, be pleasd to preserve my children 
th'jre Souls, Lord this world is nothing. On this came his 
son to whome he said, my dear child my time is come to leave 
jov. to brave the world all in an instant, he queried how he 
felt he answered, nothing to depend upon but tlie Mercyes of 
the dear Saviour. I have been scutling along all my life try- 
ing to do that which was right, I have no dependence but the 
Mercyes of the dear Saviour. After he was taken in the house 
he had considerable to say to his children earnestly entreeting 
them in all things to do that which is wright. He sufered 
violent pain in his breast, head and back, and great presure of 
water in his pipes, no power to cough, all which he bore with 
remarkable patiance, never making the least complaint, often 
praying for patiance that he might hold out to the end. He 
several times gave council and advice to those about him, set- 
ing forth the certainty of a never endeing eternity, and of the 
uncertenty of all the changeable things oi time that we should 
above all things be concumed to do that which is right in the 
Devine sight, that will bring: Peace at the solem close. Forth 
day the 14 he semd sensable his close was at hand, said to one 
of his daughters, when I expire I want thee to be quiet, and all 
of you, thee in particular. A while after he requested to sit 
up in the bed whare he sit about 3 hours unto the last. Soon 
after he was sit up he said, my breath gets shorter and shorter, 
soon after said, I am worn,-ing along with death, I don't expect 
to see the light of another day. He continued to draw his 
breath shorter and shorter, and remai-kable easy considering 
the pressure in his pipes. A few minutes before his close, he 
said, I was killed all but this little part, the ceat of life, that I 
might speak to you and now I tell yon all farewell to geather. 
He departed this the 14 of the 4*" naonth of 1841, aged 72 years 
and 4 months,*'

Family tradition says that ^' three brothers, Jeremiah, 5tIor- 
decai and John, emigrated to this country from England, one 
of whom, Mordecai, is said to have been with the Indians in 
disguise who threw the tea overboard, and thereafter spelled 
his name Sayre, and it is so recorded in the family Bible ; his 
descendants live on Long Island. One of them, Chas. D. 
Sayre, had a plantation in Brazonia co., Texas, and died of 
yellow fever at Galveston ; also his wife, Catharine." 

Possibly the family derives from the Savres of Southamp- 
ton, L. I. See Howell's Hist. South., ed. 1887. 

" The last battle of the war was fought on John Sears' farm, 
and the last ball fired lodged in his house.' '

CHARLES LEE SEARS- [ Wm.'], b. near Centreville. 
Fairfax co., Va., Feb. 8, 1775; d. Occoquan, Ya., 1862; m. 
Bittie Worster ; 2d, Susan Wells of Colchester, Ya. Chil- 
dren: 

14. i. Achilles De Geasse, D. D., b. near Centreville, Jan. 
1, 1804 ; (and named for a favorite pedagogue, a connec- 
tion of Count De Grasse of the Rev'n) ; at the age of 19, 
settled in Bourbon co., Kj., and studied law. 
" Being a joung man of graceful form, handsome features. 
gallant bearing and bright intellect, he was at once ad- 
mitted to the front rank in the best society, and succeeded 
in winning for his companion through life, Miss Annie B. 
Bowie, one of the first ladies of the country, whose force 
of character impressed itself on every one. Her ancesturs 
were from Maryland, but she was born near Millswoo<l, 
Clark CO., Ya. ; they were married March 25, 182S, and 
had four children, two sons and two daughters. They all 
died in childhood, except one, Mrs. Marietta Major, who 
now resides in Clarksville, Tenn. 

" Dr. Sears was raised under deistical influences ; his 
ambition to defend the doctrine successfully led him to 
investigate the subject, and the investigation interested 
him in religion. He and his wife were baptized at the 
same time by Rev. Ryland T. Dillard, at Bryants' station, 
in Elkhorn river, on the 19th July, 1838. 

" Dr. Sears was solemnly impressed with the beautiful 
figure in emersion given as an ordinance to teach the 
resurrection, and from that moment felt impressed witii 
the duty of preaching the Gospel, and determined to pre- 
pare himself for the ministry. He was soon called upon 
to pray in public, and licensed by the church to preach, 
and in a few months was ordained by a presbytery com- 

Sosed of Revs. R. T. Dillard, Edward Darnaby, and 
osiah Leake. 
/ "The ordination took place at David's Fork at a called 
/ meeting on Saturday before the third Sunday in February, 
1840, according to Baptist forms. 

" Thus he was pushed into the ministry before he was 
ready, according to his own thinking, and forced to com- 
bine practice with study, applying hhnself diligently. 



Appendix. 607 

" For days after the ordination, he engaged with Rev. 
Jas. M. Frost in a protracted meeting at the Forks of Elk- 
horn in Franklin county, Ky. He continued seven months, 
giving his time to protracted meetings at Frankfort, 
Georgetown, and Fleraingsburg, and preaching once a 
month at Stamping Grounds, and once a month at the 
Forks of Elkhorn. He was not the pastor of either 
church, but the people liked his preaching, and even those 
out of the church joined iu a pressing invitation for him 
to preach once a mouth, and sustained him liberally for 
the service. 

" At this time the Missionary Board of Bracken Asso- 
ciation at Maystick, appointed him missionary with a sal- 
ary sufficient to support his family. 

" It is wonderful how God blessed his work. 

"While his family remained located at Flemingsbnrg, 
his home, he itinerated through three or four counties des- 
titute of the Gospel, and holding protracted meetings with 
various churches soliciting his services. 

"The first year he preached three hundred and sixty- 
six sermons, baptizing a great many converts. 

"He held a meeting with Elder Curry, pastor at Shel- 
by ville, Ky., in April, 18-10, preaching twice a day for two 
weeks, which resulted in the baptism of one hundred and 
forty-nine persons. 

" This was followed by a meeting at South Benson, 
where quite a number united with the church, then at 
Bark's branch, where he preached two weeks, and baptized 
sixty-six persons. 

" His success and fame as a minister was spreading 
among the Baptist people throughout the State. The 
First captist Church sent a pressing invitation for his help, 
to which he acceded, beginning with a protracted meeting 
the last week in July. Ibl2, which continued eight Aveeks, 
resulting in his baptizing one hundred and twenty-tive 
converts. He was then called to the pastoral care of the 
Louisville church, which he accepted on the 1st St-p.. 1S12, 
and this ended his evangelical and missionary labors for a 
time. He continued as pastor seven years, and during 
the time baptized over three hundred persons. He re- 
signed the care of his church in July, isi9, to accept the 
appointment as General Agent of the General Association 
of Kentucky. He spent a year in tliis work, traveling 
and preaching. 



608 Sears Genealogy. 

"He held four protracted meetings at Silvesa, Mercer 
connty, Henderson and Hopkinsville, Kj., and one in In- 
diana, in which over two hundred and fifty people wont 
converted. He was called from this work to the care of 
the Hopkinsville church in July, 1S50, which was tlu.-i! 
one of the strongest Baptist congregations in Kentuekv. 
He continued as pastor of this church twelve years, duriii^:: 
which time he baptized about three hundred converts. 

"The war came np, and Dr. Sears, being intensc-h 
southern in sentiment, excited the prejudice of die Federal 
authorities, and had to surrender the care of the Hopkins- 
ville church, abandon his home, and seek freedom and 
safety in the South, where he remained four years, preach- 
ing one year at Macon, and one at Columbus, Miss., as a 

\ mere supply to these churches, and the balance of his exile 
was spent as a missionary of the Southern Board of Mis- 
sions in preaching to the Confederate army. 

"Mrs. Sears remained in Hopkinsville to take care of 
their home and effects, surrounded by warm-hearted, in- 
fluential friends, who notwithstanding the excitement then 
prevailing, never permitted her to be disturbed. 

" Dr. Sears was not permitted to return to Kentucky 
until 1865, when he decided to locate in Clarksville, Tenn. 
There were then twenty-five Baptists in the city. Dr. 
Sears called them together and reorganized the eluiroh, 
and commenced a protracted meeting in the old church on 
what is now part of the Court-House square, which was 
successful, and he was chosen pastor in January, 1SG6, 
which relation has never been changed, and in no proba- 
bilitj will be until he is called tothat blissful reward 
which awaits God's faithful servants. Dr. Sears set on 
foot at once a move to build a good church house to cost 
about $25,000, Notwithstanding the congregation was 
weak, and the membership poor, the work was prosecuted 
with untiring zeal and energy, and by degrees the work 
was accomplished, and paid for as it progressed, and the 
cause prospered greatly in his hands during the time, tho 

/ membership soon increasing over two hundred. The old 
saying, and generally a true one, that new churches always 
change pastors, was not verified in his case. 

"He had become so engrafted in the affections of hi^ 
congregation, that nothing could separate him from the 
love of the church, and the ties have continued to grow 
stronger with each succeeding year. 



Appendix. 609 

" Dr. Sears is now (18S6) in his eighty-third year. His 
face is a little furrowed, and his hair slightly gray, but 
his eyes are bright, and he stands erect in the pulpit and 
preaches two sermons every Sunday with more power of 
eloquence and Gospel sweetness than ever. His meetings 
are well attended, and good attention paid to his ministry. 
He rarely ever preaches over forty minutes, and never 
reads a sermon. He is a student, prepares his sennons 
well, and often, when enthused with his subject, takes 
lofty flights, thrilling the hearts of his hearers by his Gos- 
pel eloquence. 

" Dr. Sears and his wife celebrated their golden wedding 
eight years past, and every year since the ladies of his 
congregation pay some attention to the anniversary. 

"Mrs. Sears was born July 25, 1797, and is now in her 
ninetieth year ; still active, able to attend service regu- 
larly, visit, etc. ; attends to her own housekeeping, culti- 
vates her flowers, of which she is very fond, etc. She is 
a lady of superior intellect, and has given her husband 
great assistance in his studies, and much comfort through 
Ufe, always looking at the bright side, possessed of a cheer- 
ful spirit and a hearty good will. Pleasing in manners, 
interesting in conversation, bright in repartee, sparkhng 
in wit and humor, and keen in sarcasm when sarcasm best 
suits the demand, and at her present ripe old age few peo- 
ple are so charming in conversation. 

" Dr. Sears flgured conspicuously in the estabhshmeut 
of Bethel College at Paissellville, and Bethel Female Col- 
lege at Hopkinsville. During his ministry of forty-seven 
years, he has, perhaps, baptized over two thousand persons, 
but has served in that time as pastor of but three churches. 
Few ministers have been called upon oftener to solemnize 
the rites of matrimony, and preach Commencement and 
introductory sermons. _ 

" Dr. Sears has been a most zealous and active Free 
Mason through life ; was elected Grand Master in Tennes- 
see in 1870, and served the usual term of Eight Eminent 
Grand Commander of Knights Templar of Tennessee. 
He is now Past Grand Commander, and a prominent mem- 
ber of the Grand Encampment of the United States. 

" His days are full of love's labor, his years bright suth 
honors worthily won, and his life blessed by the approving 
spirit of a loving and All-wise Providence." [•' Chroni- 
cle," Clarksville, Tenn., 1886.]

WILLIAM SEARSS sometimes called Wm. Sewall Sears, 
is said to have been one of four brothers born in Boston, Mass., 
their mother being a Sevmll of that place. I do not find such 
marriage recorded there, or mentioned in the Sewall Genealo- 
gies, but going back to an earlier generation, I find that Rich- 
ard Sewall of Nuneaton, co. Warwick, Eag., by his wife 
Mary, sister of Sir Wm. Dugdale, Garter King of Arms, had 
a dau., Elizabeth, born 1618, who m. Edmund Scare, Notary 
Public, and was livang in 16 iS. Henry Sewall, the elder bro. 
of Richard, came to this country, and died in Rowley, Mass.. 
in 1657, 86. 81. From him descended the Boston Sewalls, and 
here, I think, we find the basis of the traditionary Sears and 
Sewall alliance. Probably Wm. Sears was born in Boston,

Which agrees with the tradition of " four brothers." Very 
likely an examination of the registers of Nuneaton, and wills 
of Sears of that place, might show a connection with the Bos. 
ton Sears, and perliaps other branches of the family. 

William Sears removed to White Plains, Westchester co.,
