This is not the Rev. James Fears who was the first minister of the Flat Lick Baptist Church in Pulaski County, KY. This is another James Fears entirely. He was a prominent citizen here where he died. His grave is here in Northport, AL. and there are alot of Fears still alive today in this area. I am a descendant of the Rev. James Fears and the Fears who went on to Indiana and then to Missouri.
