Hey out there, I do realyze that this name is not BEAR; however I have searched the genforum and the rootsweb and there are not Bearhope listings. Does possibly even sound like perhaps could be an Indian name, too.
Am searching for info on this surname who married Cora Elizabeth Burton; somewhere perhaps in Monroe County, New York, or a nearby county of New York.
Joseph would have been born ? late 1850's as Cora was born 1862, so am looking at this date range.
Can anyone in the surname list help me out? Need also any descendants or ancestors? Or can someone figure out the meaning of this name or where it might have come from as in Indian, or English, or ???
This would be so very much appreciated.
Thank you so much. May e-mail me atHarley6364@aol.com Thanks for allowing me to post this in your area. Judy
