I have to say that the info on Josiah Fears matches even better the info given to me from several generations ago by one of my predecessors.I have that J. Fears b. abt. 1800 married Sary(sp?)b. 1807.They had Lucinda b. 1833 who married Hugh Carter.Hugh was born in Tennessee.When you look at the probate for Catherine Fears Counts in Lampass Co., Tx she wills some land to a nephew Frank Davis.I believe Lucinda Fears may have been married to a Davis prior to marriage to Hugh Carter.If Josiah is the father, then I suspect he must have come from TN or Va.I see an Edward Fears notd in Franklin Co., Tn in 1810-1815 time frame.
