Just made contact with a Geer cousin who had a 1999 book by Alice Geer on this Geer family. There was no address or phone # or publisher information on the title page. Anyone aware of who this Alice Geer is and where she can be contacted?
She shows the descendancy of John R. Geer (b. 12-24-1846) in Terra Haute, Indiana. He married several times. Her book showed the descendancy of his last wife, Lulu Hughes. I am descended from his first wife, Ellen Barton (or Burton) and their daughter, Rosa Belle Geer, who married Edward Everett Hite.
John and Lulu had several children, including daughteres Ida Geer Garber, Nellie Geer Snowden, and sons, George, Caesar, Martin, Frank, Richard, Joe, and John.
John R. and Lulu Geer lived in and around Bates and Vernon County, Missouri in the early 1900's. Before that, John R. Geer was in Kansas, including Howard, Elk County.
Any contacts or information on this family would be greatly appreciated.
