I am seeking info on this family, on the 1860 census of Jefferson County, Indianait shows Henry Bear, Mary, Lafayett, Indiana, and Lavinia. On the 1870 census of Carroll County, Kentucky it shows Henry Bare, Mary, Nancy, Iowa, Lavinia and Samuel(grandson).
I know that Lafayett married Arabelle McWithey in 1876 in Carroll County, Kentucky, Indiana married Isaac Brown in 1875 in Carroll County, Kentucky, Lavinia Bear married Samuel Steele in 1877 in Carroll County, Kentucky, also I know that Henry Bear married Mary Hall on January 10, 1850 in Jefferson County, Indiana.
The other thing I know is that Missouri Bell Bear my great great grandmother married Albert Marion McWethy in 1877 in Carroll County, Kentucky and on their marriage record the witnesses are listed as Albert M. McWethy, Lafayette Bear and Isaac Brown.I have also been told that my gggrandmother has a sibling named Iowa Bear. I have been told that my grandmother is Cherokee but I am not sure of this.I am almost positive this is her family listed above and hopefully the 1870 census will prove that. If anyone has any info on any of the bears I have listed above then I would surely appreciate your help in tying this all in together.Thank You!!
