They had two children Jasper, my GGrandfather b.1846 d. 1912 and Eliza (married name SPANGLER) date of birth/death unknown. Joseph BEAR died young and in 1827 moved his family to Hopewell, Perry Co. Supposedly Joseph and Elizabeth are buried in VanMetre Cemetery in Amanda Township. My Grandfather\’s name was Clarence Delmar Bare who married Myrtie Ann MOORE. Also have a missing family bible that was at Clarence Bare\’s home and was borrowed by a family member, maybe by the first name of Fern. Any info on the family bible would be appreciated since it held much family info hand-written inside.
