i am searching for the Edmo(u)nd FEARS/FARE/FAIR family who were on the 1790 Census of NC He fought at Kings Mtn and has been doucmented as being from Burke Co. After the Revolution he and Silence continued in the area and then removed to Old Lincoln Co. KY and finally to Casey Co.Ky
The maiden name of SILENCE is my main concern. It has slipped past family reserchers for years and I am hoping that someone out there will know who she really is.
Some family members say she was a Native American but I do not believe this to be true as she was a witness in court in Burke Co against her Tory neighbors. Native Americans had no sway in court in those days from what I have been told.
If there is some one out there that can help me with Silence I would appreciate any information
