Fairfield and Allied Families
     Ephraim Geare was the son of William Geare and Tryphena (—?—) (Geare).1 He died on 17 October 1658 in Wenham, Essex County, Massachusetts. A question mark follows the last digit.1
     He is called the son of William Geare in his death record. Because there are so few Geares in the vital records of Essex County, and because he is in the right place at the right time, it is supposed that he is correctly placed as the son of William and Tryphena.
