Bear Family Letter Series

Collection Source:

This series of letters was sent to me, already in electronic form, by Debbie Bear. I have added them to my website at her request, as they nicely complement my own series of Gibbons/Kemper/Yancey Family Letters. Another reason I agreed to host these letters here on my website is that I am also a Bear descendant myself.

These letters came to Debbie by way of Elizabeth Hall Bear, who got them from Frances Eugene Bear (1894-1966), who in turn got them from Jessie Hough, the granddaughter of Bishop John Bear.
