  • Name Comfort SEARS  [1, 2
    • Comfort Sears, like his father, was strict in the observance of the Sabbath, and required the same of his children, though he never united with the church.

      In February, 1793, his house took fire in the night, and was entirely destroyed. He turned out with only his shirt on, and got out the things; first of all a barrel of pork; in some way he injured his great toe, either by freezing or a bruise, and it was the cause of his death many years after.
