  • Deaths Reported in the Boston Recorder and Telegraph, 1827 and 1828 SEARS SEARS, David, 97, d. at Lenox. Ag. 10. 1827 Death Tracy Norstrem Steiner I'm wondering how accurate the May's Sears book actually is. Does anyone know if he listed sources anywhere? I have been unable to find supporting documentation to link David Sears, 1761-1842 (number 737 in the book) to his supposed father David Sears, 1731-1827 (number 294 in the book). My only source is the May's book. Is anyone else working on this line? Thanks
