    He was a cordwainer.

    As of 16 Dec 2018, ancestry.com's transcription of the record of his will and probate erroneously calls 2 Jan 1772 the date of his probate. But the eighteenth-century probate record that ancestry.com links to -- a piece of handwriting so elegantly legible it could be read from outer space -- clearly says that Josiah Sears made his will on 2 Jan 1772 and that it was probated the following 11 Feb. Whenever possible, always look at the original documents!
