      James Fears, born about 1828 in Charlotte County, Virginia, was
      the third child of James Fears, Sr., and his wife Rebecca Dungy.

      He married Serena Catherine St. John, "free persons of colour,"
      18 December 1847 Charlotte County, Virginia bond.

      He registered in Charlotte County on 7 October 1850:
      'Bright complexion, aged 22, free-born
      son of James Fears & Rebecca his wife'.
        

      Shortly after the birth of their first child Henry Brooks Fears, the
      couple moved to Henry County, Indiana, with his parents and siblings.

      He enlisted in the Civil War, farmed in Kansas and Nebraska and was
      listed as a mail carrier in the census for Custer County, Nebraska, in 1900.
