Tammie Just to add to your confusiuon. Pearl Shears 1875-1961 Lived Xenia,Ohio, and probably Cedarville, where he/she is buried in North cemetery. Was told this is a male, not female. I don't know who he/she is, but Pearl was listed in Xenia city directory as living at 432 E.3rd, 1930s. Due to poor notes, am not sure if he also lived with Otis/Eunice Shears at 432 S. Columbus. Odd, same number, different street, or maybe not. Also my GGrandfather John P Shears lived at 423 E.3rd 1937/38/39, and his daughter at 434 E.3rd. Buried North Cemetery, Cedarville, Geene Co, Ohio. Grace Shears 1877-1929 & Artie Shears 1880-1966. John T.Shears 1843-1909 Iva Shears 1887-1894 Frank Shears 1883-1937 Ethel Shears 1848?-1900? Issac Shears Co.G 178 Ohio Inf. Retta Shears 1862-1943 Pearl Shears 1875-1961 My John P Hughes was s/o James/Sarah Shears. Go to rootsweb.com, and look for Shears posts. Several related to your search. As for Maggie/Maraget, is interesting my John P Shears obit, 1939, lists sister Marguerite Arnett.
