Re: Beery 'Pop Bear' 1940's
Twila Beery (1937- )was daughter of "Lou" (1908- ) and Elza Beery (1901-?).
I've never heard Elza called Pop Bear, but I wasn't around him that much. I knew him as a minister of the Churches of God. His family had some connection to Eagle Boys Village in Hershey, MI.
"Lou" was the daughter of Ora and Maude (Parks) Shoemaker, born 1908 in MO. Could Ora have been the one known as "Pop Bear"?
