Descendants of William Baer

Contributed by LDietle@compuserve.com (Lannie Dietle)

I am descended from Ludwig Baer and Catherine Shallus via their son Wilhelm Baer. I have always known him as "William Bare" from the wonderful little book called "Genealogy of the Relatives of William J. Miller", Meyersdale: 1963.

William Bare's daughter Catherine married Jacob _Peter_ Miller, who was b. Oct. 24, 1845 in Greenville Twp, the son of Peter Miller and Mariah Harden. Jacob and Catharine had the following children (from the Miller Book):

Sarah Miller, b. Sept. 27, 1871, d. June 21, 1957, married Jacob Paul Harvey Miller, b. Sept. 21, 1873, d. June 8, 1957, married Belina Baer Ellen Miller, b. Feb. 22, 1876, died Feb. 15, 1947, married Levi Shockey William Wilson Miller, b. Oct. 28, 1877, married Alice Lowry Minerva Miller, b. Feb. 10. 1883, died Feb. 12, 1959, married Franklin Lloyd Hostetler Milton Peter Miller, born Sept. 8, 1884, died April 8, 1949, married Agnes Spence

Harvey Miller, son of Jacob Peter Miller, was my Great Grandfather. He married Belinda Baer, the daughter of Elisha Baer and Mary (Polly) Beal DJH1277. (Mary (Polly) Beal shows up in your Peter Biel Descendant's list) The book "Descendants of Jacob Hochstetler" lists Elisha Baer as being the son of John and Elizabeth (Hutzel) Baer of Pocohontas, Pa, and states that Elisha died on March 1, 1896.

The children of Harvey Miller and Belinda Baer are as follows (from the Miller book):

George Henry Miller, b. Sept.10, 1899
Alma Catherine Miller, b. Feb. 7, 1901
