I have been researching our family name for over 15 years and have been contacted by Claire Grey from London and she has filled in half our family tree. Richard Dearie married Margaret Wattt but when she came to America (1836) he wasn't with her and I wondered why. Seems he was a drunk and she left him and took their five sons to this country. He did have another family in England and the half brother, George Dearie, did come to this country and fought with 3 Dearie boys on the Southern side during the UN-Cival War. She informed me that Richard made his way to America and he and George ran a store together in Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania!!!! George died there in 1903 and now we are searching for his children and family he had in Pennsylvania. If you know of any Dearie's that might have been children/wife of George please contact me. Seems Claire is a desendant of Annie Dearie born in America but can't find out where in America--just lists her place of birth as America.
