S.P. Mears is my g/grandfather. The S is for Simpson and I am not sure what the P stand for--we were always told that his middle name was Lawson. He was married in McLennan County in 1875 to Alice Francis Wilson. The first documentation I have for him is his marriage. I have not been able to locate him in the 1860 or 1870 census.
A.W. Mears may have been married to a Driver from Falls County, TX. I do not know his given name.
I believe that the J.L. Mears is a brother, but have no proof.
Any information that you could share on this Mears' family would be greatly appreciated.
