My gggrandmother was Matilda Favors, b.1817
in Jessamine Co., KY.; d.1854-56 in Dade Co.
MO. Census records seem to indicate her father as Silas Favors and grandfather John Favors.
On Dec.12, 1835, Matilda married William Sears, in Logan Co. KY. William is the son of David Sears and Catharine Coffman.
William and Matilda soon left Logan Co. to live in Hopkins Co., KY, near other Favor relatives. They were active in the Baptist Church.
Their children were:
Martha Susan b.1839
Henry b.1840 (my ggrandfather)
Ann M. b.1841
William Franklin b.1843
John R. b.1852
All were born in Hopkins Co. KY.
In 1854, William and family moved to Dade Co. MO. Several of Willaims cousins lived in that area of Missouri, as well as the family of his Aunt Madeline Sears Acock.
