I have some info- My father was John Edmond Geer born 8-28-1909 in Canton Oh. My grandfather was Edmond Byron Geer born 7-1-1888 in New Cumberland WV. He was married to Margaret Laughrey born 12-12-1886. My grandfather died 10-1-1946. My great-grandfather was Arthur Owen Geer born 10-31-1859 he died 2-6-1933. Arthur Owen was married to Martha Adah Hartford born 9-28-1868 and died 8-11-1950. Martha Adah's father John B. Hartford born 1825 died 7-22-1907 he owned a Grist Mill which is now part of Tomilson Run State Park. I believe Arthur Owen's father was Benjamin Geer born 10-18-1831. I spoke to Paul Geer in WV in 1989. His father was Orange Geer (my great-great Uncle). He stated that the family had originally come from the Boston area in the early 1700's. I had heard from my great-aunt Caryle Evada Geer Murray born 10-15-1893 that the family was from New York.My grandfather added the "s" to Geer.
