I am related to a James Mears from Scranton, PA and I am stuck."My" James Mears married Anna Ford (1861-1911) and had 5 daughters.I am related to the oldest daughter, Catherine Mears (1883-1965.)JM was either from PA or Ireland.I have performed several searches and see that James may have been married earlier and possibly had other children.However, since I cannot find any documents on JM, I am not sure if they are the same person.My JM would have died between 1891-1899.(1891 was the birth year of his youngest daughter and on the 1900 census, Anna Ford is married to Patrick Martin and has a child born in 1900.)
If you know anything about my relative, I would really appreciate the assistance.Thank you!
