Saw your e-mail December 29, 2000mentioning your great grandfather Dudely Geren born about December 10, 1836 in Ohio.Do you have any information re: his children or wife?
You mentioned Issac Geren as possibly Dudely's Father, but I have not run across an Issac Geren in my searchings yet ... sorry.
My own Great Grandfather was also a Dudely.Dudely D. Geren,born 1846 in Columbus Ohio.He was married to Adenia Mary Wilson. They has five children.He had a brother Iraneus A. Geren, born March 1845.They both were served in the army during the civil war.
I have also found an earlierDudely Geren born 1822 in Beaver Co., PA ;son of Joseph Geren and Nancy Hill.Dudely was the first of theten children in this family and the family moved to Marietta, Washington Co.Ohio around 1837.
Have you ever found any link between these "Dudely Geren" families?
I would be happy to trade any other Geren family information with you.
