While going over some old records I found reference to a Bear genealogy. My line of Dillers married into a line of Bowmans (names all have a familiar ring, don't they) who married into a line of Bears.
It was "A Genealogy of the Bear Family and Biographical Record of the Descendants of Jacob Bear" by Walter Scott Bear, 1906, Central Printing & Publishing Company, Harrisburg, Pa.
I don't have it and I know books of that period are often flawed but I'll wager it's, at the least, interesting reading . Any one seen it?
