!S.P. May p.99 Oscar Weed, who lives in the old Sears homestead at Mill Plains, CT., has a deed dated July 10, 1739, from Robt. Hebard, Jr., and Ruth, his wife, of the town and county of Windham, CT, to James Sears, late of Yarmouth, county Barnstable, Province of Mass. bay, of a tract of land in Windham, near the Shautucket river, containing 52 acres, the consideration being L 275. How long James Sears remained in Windham, if he lived there at all, is not known, but he is supposed to have removed to Mill Plains, then a part of Ridge- field, about 1740-45, although his name does not appear in "listable estates" of Ridgefield fir 1746. James Sears was chosen pathmaster, Kent, CT (which is near by,) Apr. 7,1747, and in 1756, of the Old Gilead Church in Carmel. He was one of the organizers of the Congregational Church in Ridgebury, (the norhtern society of Ridgefield) in 1769. After the death of his wife, Desire, he lived with his son Comfort, and trad- ition tells of his orderly habits and rigid religious observances. When he first settled in Ridgefield wild turkeys and other game abounded. It is related that one Sabbath morning a flock of wild turkeys alighted in his cornfield. Taking his gun he started to shoot them, but remembering that it was the Lord's Day, he returned, remarking, "you did not get to me that time, Mr. Devil." !Esther A Savage-The CT Nutmegger, Dec 1992, p. 363 James SEARS(May p.64-65) ... Pelletreau (p.756) says the SEARS family came to Putnam co (Then Dutchess co, NY) in 1743. James SEARS lived on a farm adjacent to that of Eleazer HAMBLIN (No.135 RIN13969) in 1762, as shown by records of a survey of Lot 6 in that year. (Pelletreau, p.269). Near by, in the town of Southeast, "The most numerous families in former times were the CROSBYs"(Pelletreau, p.429), descended from three brothers who came from Harwich, MA. David (No. 582 RIN3725) and Joshua SEARS (No.256 RIN4061?) came in 1749. Thomas SEARS (No.587 RIN3730) settled on a farm south of Carmel in 1753. These three were descended from the Rev Thomas CROSBY baptized ... James SEARS, his brother-in-law, arrived to settle near the HAMBLINs in 1743.

Notes

!HLS notes James Sears, with his wife, Mehitabel Sherwood, and his family left Putnam county, NY. Their dismissal from the church was noted in 1814. They moved to Wayne co, NY where he bought a farm, known as Horace Hallet's. Later he sold that and settled on the "Stringer" land in the woods. James lived in Galen and Savannah Townships. Mr Sears' first wife died in 1824. In March 1829 he married Lucretia Munsell. According to a document from her daughter, they lived together for only about three months. No divorce record can be found. James then appeared to move westerly into Carroll, Chautauqua co, NY, near his son Eli. Here he bought and sold several pieces of land and also lived for a time in Warren co, PA. During this time a son, James, was born to Mr Sears and his third wife, Phebe. About 1840 he appears to have moved back easterly, settling in Tyre twp, Seneca co, NY.

Notes

!S.P. may p.282 James Sears removed from Millplain, CT to Seneca Castle, NY in 1836, having sold his farm (which adjoined his bro. Lewis', and was 2 miles from the old homestead,) to his bro. Joseph C. He was a well-to-do farmer, of excellent literary taste, and of much spiritual culture. His idea of honesty was, good measure, pressed down and running over, and every thing was done heartily, and as unto the Lord, who seemed ever present with him. He was single-hearted, pure-minded beyond most Christians, and had great humility. All his children were taught by example as well as precept. He was a Deacon for 30 years, and was blessed with two most excellent wives.
