    Mr. Sears [III] is of an excellent family; his parents were both natives of the Empire State, his father, James, Sr., born in Orange County, and the mother, in her girlhood Miss Hester Rutan, in Sullivan County.

    The father of our subject was reared to manhood on a farm in his native county, and upon starting out for himself in life took up his abode in Sullivan County, N. Y., where he engaged extensively in agriculture, and like his father before him, also operated a sawmill. He became prominent in the affairs of Sullivan County, represented his township in the Board of Supervisors many years, and after the organization of the Republican party was one of its most active members. He departed this life in March, 1888, at the old homestead, when ninety-six years old. The mother had preceded her aged partner only a few weeks, dying in February of that year, at the age of seventy-eight. She was a good woman in the highest sense of the term, and a conscientious member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

    To the parents of our subject there were born ten children, namely: Margaretta, Abigail, Elizabeth, Isaac, Deborah, James, Mary, Alfred, Charles and William. Charles died when about thirty-six years old.
