Alexander MEARS was born about 1750 in England, and came to the Chebacco Parish of Ipswich, Massachusetts (now the town of Essex).  He served in the American Revolution and died in Essex in 1824.  He had twelve children! 
MEARS Alexander Mears, my 5th great grandfather, was born about 1750 in England and it seems that he came to Massachusetts as a very young man.  His arrival coincides with the beginning rumbles of the Revolutionary War.  ...
