Timeline Table of Surname SIAS in the Censuses of Mid-Atlantic and Southern States:
Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina,
including the Midwest State of Ohio
My intent here is to present all known SIAS/SEARS/etc. records in the above states.  While a great deal of work has been done on SIAS from New England, little has been done on the comparatively small families originating out of these mid-Atlantic and southern states. 

The surname SIAS/SIAR/SYAR/SYARS/SIER/SIERS/SEARS is misread more often than not, so in compiling the table below, I've tried to include names that may be misreadings of SIAS/SEARS/&c.  There were a great many SIMs and SIMSes, plus some SYMSes, that I did not extract.

Lines known or believed to be related are highlighted with the same color.
Descendants of John SIAS & Mary CHAMBERS
(of Baltimore, Carroll, and Frederick Cos., MD)
