I am a Virginian, now living in Alabama. There is a large amount of information on Alabama Fears here at the main library. There is also a grave of James Fears, a War of 1812 spy, which has been overgrown with weeds. I would be glad to help anyone with basic info from the library and possibly a picture of the grave if needed. The geneologists here have researched this James Fears and have quite a bit of info on him and his relatives. Unfortuately he's not the James Fears I'm related to.We will be moving back to VA./MD./PA. area this summer.
