Youngest child of Thomas Mears and Adeline Gray Mears; research from Lulu Harriet Mears Wyman (his sister) shows he married Hattie Roby. From the Vermont Vital Records, on December 7, 1911, Percy married Sarah "Sallie" L. Whitcomb Nichols, a widow of Charles Nichols. In 1918, Percy's WWI draft card shows him to be 37 years old, employed as a farmer with Saunders Bros., in Dorset, Bennington County, VT. In 1921, he and wife Elizabeth applied for a passport to travel to Africa and Australia to visit relatives. He was 6'2" tall, blue eyes, black with greying hair. The passport was to be delivered to Hartford, CT. He and Elizabeth sailed on the S.S. Ventura from Sydney, Australia, December 20, 1922, arriving at San Francisco, CA, on Jan 9th, 1923. The ship's passenger list shows that Elizabeth was naturalized through marriage in 1918. In 1930 Percy and Elizabeth are residing in Oakland City, Alameda, California; he was employed as a carpenter, she was doing housework. Elizabeth is listed as being from Ireland. In 1940 Percy and Elizabeth lived on 1912 Linden Street, Oakland; he was employed as a carpenter at U.S. Navy yard. WWII draft card shows Percy living at 2206 Grove Street in Oakland CA, employed at the Wayside Cafe.
