I almost fell out of my chair when I saw your message posted on Genealogy.com. I had begun to believe that all of the Feary family were either dead or so assimilated into other families that they had forgotten their Feary background. My birth name is Robert Brian Feary and I am the son of Stephen Edward Feary who is the son of Maurice Joseph Feary and Mary Elizabeth Savage. My brother Stephen and I were born and raised in Eagle Rock and knew most of the Feary family - except for John Wayne (I have not heard of him!) and one of the daughters who had moved north to the bay area. She must have been your grandmother, Mary Loretto Feary?? Are you then part of the Skinner family??For the last year or so my brother and I have been trying to put together a Feary family tree but have been frustrated by the lack of info and the various spellings of the Feary name. Which is why I was so excited when I saw your message!!!! I do have bits and pieces of info on various family members that I will happily share with you. Have you been able to gather any further info?? Such as - what was the name of Maurice's brother and what happened to him?? What were the names of Maurice's parents??Re, your question about Mary Elizabeth Savage - the little info I have is that her mothers name was Morrisy.Mary, please contact me for further specifics about my side of the Feary family and please share with me info about your side of the family. Thanks.
