The Descendants of Richard Sears by Samuel May
page 226

In early life Mr. Sears followed farming and coopering, with his father; removed from Chatham, Ct., to New Durham, Greene Co., New York, and thence, after two years, he penetrated the forest still further to Delaware, Ohio, where he resided till his death.

He filled with honor and esteem various military offices. Changing his views of the Christian religion, he joined the Baptist Church, devoted himself to the ministry, received ordination, and after serving his church for some years, to its great increase, took his leave for a more exttended field.

He received his appointment as missionary, and, traveling with his two sons, John and Benjamin, and John's wife, he went to Fort Wayne, Indiana, his sons having received appointment to labor as missionaries among the Indians. He aided them in the constitution of a church at Fort Wayne, the first one established in Indiana.

He returned from the mission to Delaware, and died soon afterward, much lamented as a man of energy and piety.

Benjamin Sears married Ann Bigelow on February 2, 1794. They had 8 children.
