Thank you for your very generous offer. Hope I don't abuse it.
My mysterious Bears married into 2 of my families in Cumberland County.
In the Heikes family -
There is a Benjamin Bear 1812-1862 buried in the Heikes Farm Graveyard and I don't have any idea who he is.
Elizabeth Heikes married John Bear born c.1790 and who's will was written 1835 and proved 1836 in Cumberland County. (They had at least 8 children).
In the Diller family -
John Bear married Magdalena Diller c.1835 in West Pennsboro Twp. Cumberland. (She was born 1815 and they had 8 children)
Catherine Bear (3/12/1821-1/12/1892) married Samuel Diller and they went to Nebraska in 1878.
Jacob Bear married Martha Bowman 4/12/1831 in Newville, Cumberland and they went to Illinois c.1852.
Thanks for any help.
