This thread was so long ago but I'm hoping that someone will read this message. I have a George W. Phares, son of Soloman Vandevender Phares and Mary Ann Bouse, born in Pendleton county, WV, that is in my husband's family line. Unfortunately, that's all the information I have on him. My husband's direct ancestor is George W.'s sister, Sarah Elizabeth Phares (1845-1926). I do have the names of Soloman Vandevender Phares's parents: Soloman Phares (1780-1860) and Elizabeth Vandevender.
I would love to share information with anyone and hopefully fill in some blanks. You can contact me here or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
