I hate to disappoint you, my info. shows that Samuel Cheairs was not in Milam County until after 1850. Are you
sure you have the right Cheairs? My info. show that the Cheairs family came into Texas around 1835 just prior to the Battle of San Jacinto. The settled in Nacogdoches Co., which later branched off partly and formed Houston Co.
After the battle, around the 1840 census Samuel and his
youngest brother moved to Bell County passin through Milam
Co. and then later Milam. I do not think they are the same
person. If you have any info. suggested otherwise, please let me know.
