JOHN SEARS, farmer; P. O. Kilbourne; son of Henry Sears, one of the oldest settlers in the county, who was born in Wake Co., near Raleigh, N. C. in November, 1805, and came to this State in 1822, finally locating in Crane Creek Township in 1828, where the subject of this sketch was born Feb. 16, 1835. He remained with his father until his marriage with Mary A. Turner, who was born Aug. 29, 1838, in Buckingham Co., Va. Their marriage took place Nov. 5, 1863; two children are the only ones living out of six born to them-Ewin and Miles; since their marriage, they have remained at their present place of abode. Mr. Sears is a man of few words, quiet and unassuming, and attends to his own business, paying no attention to the affairs of others
