At various times during the past ten years I've been trying to find more information about my Phares ancestors.I'm hoping that someone on this message board might be able to connect my ancestors to people in their databases and family trees.
My great-grandfather George William Phares was born in Ohio on November 14, 1861. Unfortunately we don't know the county.His father seems to have been named William Oscar Phares, but I have also seen it listed as "William P.," "W.O.," and "W.P."He was supposedly born in Ohio in 1835, but I have no further information.His mother was Elizabeth (Watson) Phares and she seems to have been born in Massachusetts in 1843.
George William was one of only two children that I am aware of.His sister Ida may have been born in Missouri in 1859 (Albany County)?George William was married three times.His first wife Venadia Kidder seems to have Pennsylvania ties.His second wife is unknown.His third wife (my great-grandmother) was Edna V. Stewart.She was born in Illinois, but met George William after he had relocated to Missouri.
If anyone can help with information, it will be greatly appreciated! Sincerely, Adam
