About Shubael Stearns

The latest research on this family comes from Whitney, Earnest Eugene, "Shubael and Rebecca (Larriford) Starns and Their Ten Children," Connecticut Nutmegger 46 (June 2013):12-29; (Sept. 2013):145-8

It corrects a few things, and adds a tremendous amount of information to the Stearns Genealogy, referenced below


In about 1714, Shubael removed to Tolland, Conn., of which he was the first Town Clerk. About 1750, with his sons and daughters and their families, he left Tolland on account of ecclesiastical difficulties, and settled near New Bern, N.C. He and his family were Baptists and some of them have exercised a great influence upon the religious sentiments of the South. Their residence in North Carolina was at a place called "Pepper Cotton, " and a pamphlet was published at the time giving an account of the troubles in Tolland, Conn. Reference Book: "Genealogy and Memoirs of Charles and Nathaniel Stearns, and Their Descendants, " Courier Publishing, 1901 by Mrs. Avis Stearns Van Wagenen, p. 41 Married to Rebecca Lariby.
