Hello Lydia, I am sorry but this must be another branch of the Gears. My Gears were John Gear and his wife Eliza Jane Penney (my g-grandparents), they had 13 children and lived in the Salmon Cove, Conception Bay area in the late 1800's. However, you can go to the NF Genweb project and post a message, with your information; it would be easier to find info if you have a location and time frame to go by. Let me know if you have any luck. Good luck and take care, Lois.
