My niece's Baers are from PA to Wayne Co., Ohio. Michael "Bear" from PA bought land in Ohio and most of his family moved there after he died in 1818.
Son Jacob m. Mary (Polly) Whisler (Andrew + Catherine HE___) in 1831. I've been verifying/correcting family history writings and met several who also seek Catherine's maiden name.
None of those names fit into my line. My line is from Walter C Snodgrass who married Sallie Cobb. They lived in TX and OK. There son Emmett Snodgrass was my grandfather and he lived in CO. Sorry none of this works in. Deb
In an indirect way we are related. Your line is in the "Joseph of Tinkers Creek" line and my line is out of "Mythical John" line. I am a Snodgrass, so we are related. We just have to find out which lines out of Scotland or Ireland we are in.
Hope fully, with a little help from a gentleman that I've been in touch with recently can get us the information. He is not a Snodgrass, but his ggg-grandfather was and change his name to marry a "Highlander's" daughter.
Was that Suzie Snodgrass Schoolcraft that you was working with?
