Hi, I am searching for the Mairs / Mears / Meares line, from The Scots- Irish in Ulster, Ireland to Steubenville, OH, and Browning area of Missouri. I live in S.W. Michigan and frequently travel the back roads of West Michigan, Southern Indiana, and Southern Ohio. My favorite cemeteries to explore are the small, somewhat forgotten cemeteries, well off the beaten trail. The large cemeteries that require maps, and lots of research.. not my strong suit. If there is anything I can do for someone, please ask. Also, If I have made any mistakes please let me know and I will do my best to correct them. Happy Hunting.
