My father, Russel Motimer Geer, lived in West Hartford, Conn. His father Curtis Geer was a professor at a seminary in Hartford and also pastored a Congregationlist Church in the area. My father married my mother, Elisabeth Wyman Geer, of Arlington, Mass. They had three children; David Wyman Geer born in Providence, RI on Nov. 13, 1925, Barbara Ann Geer (born in Providence in 1929), and myself Richard Gillette Geer (born in Providence on Nov 19, 1933). My Father had been previously married.His first wife's family mane was Gilmartin and I believe she was from Colechester, Conn.They had one child, Russel Mortimer Geer, Jr. born in 1921. This first wife apparently died in childbirth or shortly following birth of Russel Jr.
