Hi Jeffrey, Dick Wood here in Tucson, AZ.
I know very little about my g grandmother, Barbara Hiers(Hyers). My g grandfather Augustus Wood returned to Wayne County, PA from the Civil War in 1865. The next year, 1866, he "wedded" Miss Barbara Hier of New York City. I do not know where the wedding took place, in Wayne County, PA, NYC or someplace else.
From later census, her birthday is shown around 1846/47. The same census state she was born in NY, and her parents were born Wurtenburg (sp), Germany. In another census, her mother is shown living with her, her name is Barbary, born c. 1810
Sadly, that is all I know about my g grandmother Barabra Hiers.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Please reply directly to me at rwood238 at comcast.net
