  • Notes 
    • I am trying to gaing some perspective on James Fears b. TN 1829 according to multiple census reports in Arkansas 1840,1850 and Missouri 1860-1910. He is noted to be born in TN in all of the census reports but the birth date varies
      in only one census (1880 MO. census puts him at 1825) though the majority have him at b. 1829. It is also clear that this James Fears is married to Nancy Counts. I have noted some researcher to give this James Fears another wife, Mirinda Pyles/Piles. Since we find this second James Fears in Santhuff Cemetery,Reynolds County Missouri with incription on tombstone stating 1823-1889 with Mirinda buried adjacent I am skeptical that these two James are the same. Considering that James Fears is noted with Nancy in 1910 one would have to explain these discrepant facts away before saying James Fears b. 1829 in TN is the same James Fears b. 1823-1825 and dying in 1899. Also various researchers have the James Fears married to Mirinda being born in Alabama and, in some cases Kentucky.

      Richard Counts married Julia McClain or McClane 11 Sep 1838 in Washington County, Missouri. He appears in Washington County 1840 Census with a wife and a female child under 5. This female is Nancy Ellen Counts. Richard never appears in census records again that I can tell; however, the family grew between 1840 and 1860. The family moved south to Shannon County or Reynolds County depending on the year they moved. Julia can be found through 1870 and probably 1880 (I just haven't researched her that far).

      James Fears and Nancy Counts Fears are in Iron County, Missouri by 1880.

      William and Mary "Polly" (Douglass) Fears had six sons...Ebenezer, William, Pryor, John, James, & Josiah.
