Hi Bob, It has been over 3 yrs. since we emailed. I have information reg. Mary Phares/Wm. Zike's children. They were my gg grandparents. Their son Wm.Riley m. Cynthia Ellen Talbert and are my g-grdp. Back to M.Phares - I believe Mary may have been born in MD. I would like to know if her parents were Robert P. (I have also seen a Robert H.) and Jane Brown,m. Ap. 9, 1818 in Hamilton, OH. I am happy to share anything I have that you need.
