Don, I have a Abraham Bear (aka Baer) born 1811 in Waterloo Co. and married to Sallie Witmer. Sometime in the 1840s or early 1850's, they immigrated to Michigan with their one son, Josiah, born 1844 in Waterloo Co. They had two known addition children, David and John, born in Michigan. Abraham died in 1890 and is buried in Goodland, Lapeer Co. Michigan. Can you make a connection to Abraham?
