Thanks for the response. I guess we are distant cousins. That is really neat!
I learned a little about Leon from my aunt Cindy, but she only had a bit of information. She did know that his father and mother were Bertha and Charlie Weare, but I don't have birth dates/places or death dates/places so the trail stops there for now. I also don't know Leon or his wife Ruth's birth/death information.
I am trying to map the family name upward, so any information you might have about Bertha and Charlie and/or any of their forebears would be greatly appreciated. I guess your family tree from your father (my great uncle) on up would be the same for me. I know that genealogy can be very difficult work, so anything you are able to share would be super helpful.
