John Thomas Wears: Family Tradition

Source: [Carol Lee Mattocks], information provided by Carol Lee Mattocks.

[Note: Subsequent research has seriously put into doubt the assertion made here that John Thomas Wears was the brother of James, William, George, and Jane.  It seems more probable that he was their first cousin.]

WEARS, John Thomas:  According to Mildred COALE and Luster Earl COLLEY, John Thomas WEARS had
four siblings:

  • James
  • William
  • George
  • Jane A.

Jane A. was probably younger than John Thomas.

Rumour has it that John Thomas changed the spelling of his last name at the time of the Civil War.  John Thomas joined the Union Army while his brothers and father sided with the Confederacy.  John Thomas spent 3 years in the Army as part of the MO Cavalry, 7th Regiment, Company C.
