John LEAR Jr.

Jemima 1 2

  • Marriage: John LEAR Jr. 1 2
  • Died: After 1809 3

bullet  General Notes:

I can't perpetuate the notion her maiden name was Struman or Sturman without seeing some evidence to that effect. I can find no records for a Struman or Sturman family in Culpeper County, Virginia. I even wonder if the name Spilman might not have been misread for Sturman/Struman, since the Lears did live amongst and interact with the Spilman family, early Germanna immigrants.

bullet  Death Notes:

Both John and Jemima would appear to have been living as of 22 Jan 1809, the date of daughter Lavina Lear's will, which made bequests to them.


Jemima married John LEAR Jr., son of John LEAR and Sarah.1 2 (John LEAR Jr. died By 1811 in Culpeper County, Virginia 4.)
