    I am continuing to search for my Shearer ancesters. My Great Grandfather is “Robert Augustus Shearer” born in westmorland, pa. Feb 7, 1843. He is a Civil War Veteran. His Father was named John Shearer and his father was Robert Shearer. I have very little information beyond robert Augustus Shearer. Do any of these names tie into your line? I keep running into dead ends. Any info would be helpful.
