Thanks a million, Larry "Joey"! I don't have my hopes up, but it would sure be nice to find her. I wish my g-g-grandpa Fears would have had the forethought to make a note of her burial for me! :)

RE: Mary Susannah Jones Fears
I have no idea where Mary is buried. The Fears' were living in Jonesboro, AR when Mary died, and her obit states that "her funeral will be held at the family burial ground, 12 miles north of the city". Would love to find her!

After she died, her husband James along with their two children made their way out to California. James died about 30 years after Mary and is buried where I live in San Diego. Even though he had remarried, I believe my great-grandmother Alcia Fears paid tribute to her mother by adding Mary's name to his gravestone.

Hey Larry!

That is fantastic info. Here I was just looking for Mary's parents. Didn't even think that far back! Good stuff.

These are all ancestors on my mom's side of the family. Thrilled to share these amazing findings with her.

Hey Cousin!

Great to meet you too. I can't tell you how thrilled I am about Mary's parents. Thanks again, so much! They have been a mystery in our family, from my aunt's extensive research in the 80's and my research in the last 15 years. You solved it for us!

I added John and Sophronia (what a name!) to my Ancestry account and a huge amount of information popped up. One in particular was a civil war pension card with Sophronia Jones and Mary S Fears listed as dependents. Bingo!

Anyway, thank you again. I love putting the puzzle pieces together!

Hi Larry,

I just noticed your edit to add the parents of Mary Jones to her memorial. Thank you very much! She is my great-great grandmother and I have been searching for her parents for years. I was just wondering what source you used and if you are related as well?

Thanks,
Lannie Bartlett
