About Barnabas Sears, Capt.

The early life of Barnabas Sears was spent at sea, shipping at the age of nine in his father's vessel, he and another boy taking a man's share. About 1820 he was induced to stop ashore to engage in the then lucrative business of salt manufacturing at South Yarmouth. He was most successful on the sea, rapidly rising to master. He manufactured salt eighteen years, and passed the remainder of his days in the cultivation of his farm. He enjoyed the full confidence of his townsmen, but would never accept any trust that would interfere with his social and business relations. His life was one of marked loyalty to truth and honesty, and his ready sympathy and genial nature won for him many friends who sincerely mourned his death, which occurred at the homestead, July 17, 1875."
