(1) I don’t know anything about a sister of Charles Sears named Lydia Eliza.Charles was the only name listed as issue of Charles and Elizabeth (Warren) Sears. (2) According to Banta, this branch of the Sayre/Sears families were living in the state of Connecticut. (3) I’ve never attempted to study Warren genealogy, so can’t help you there. (4) There are places all back through history intermixing the Sayre, Sayer, Sayers, Sears spelling, and I feel most after 1800 are traceable to and through our common immigrant ancestor, Thomas. (5) Connecticut to America, NY to Albany is indicated by Banta.
