George Ulysses BEARLEY was born 5 Feb 1881 in Henry Co. OH. His obit states that he lived in Toledo more than 40 years, coming here from Texas with his parents. Maybe, "Texas" is the community in Henry County, about 5 miles southeast of Liberty Center!
His survivors were wife Zella, son Chester and daughters Gladys, Norma and Mrs. Margaret STACEY.
