Hi Kyle;

My name may not mean much, but my GGMother was Ester(sp?) (FEARS) PEW of Gloucester MA USA.

We could be cousins???????

I have read all your past postings on "" "Fears" forum, and wanted to respond to you.

Did you get any other responses?

The Fears in Gloucester MA, were mostly fisherman, and it seems that most of the Fears men died at sea.

This info is found at the "Perfect Storm" sponsored web site:

see Part-1:
Pg-18? Josiah H Fears, d.1837
Pg-20? Isaac (Jr) and Joseph (Jr) Fears, d. 1843
Pg-22? William Fears, d. 1849

Also the Fears, Pews and a few of the Fentons have two large sections of "Oak Grove" cemetery in Gloucester MA.

The Pews in Gloucester were fish salters who started "Gorton and Pew" Fisheries.

It is now "Gortons" only, and is a VERY big fish processor in the USA.

Thank you very much for the info about George Fear(s) to New England in 1750.

Sorry, I don't have much.....but I really just started with the Fears.

I was looking for Dennis Fenton (from London) and Bridget (?) Fenton (from London?).

I believe she emigrated to the Boston area in early-mid 1800's with a young son Edward F., (my GFather).

I am 58 years old and live in the Greater Boston area of Massachusetts.

Please respond, if you get a chance.

I think there are people on the Fears Forum that could use your info.
(Lots of inquiries from rest of USA, NOT New England!)

Thanks very much; Charlie (Charles H Fenton)
