I am researching the GEERs, an African American family, residing in Cherokee County or other northern area of Alabama, from 1861 to present.
Please respond if you have any information on this family.
Ancestors were slaves who had been purchased in Anderson County, SC and were brought to the Cherokee, AL, area by a white Geer family in 1861-62. They had already assumed the surname, Geer, before they were sold. the
