I am desperately seeking information about my great-grandmother Ida Bare [Barr] Hodge (b. abt 1908).
All I know is that my grandfather's mother was named Ida Bare (or Barr), and she lived in Ashe Co, North Carolina. She married Gurney Hodge some time before 1930. My grandfather's name is Richard Blaine Barr (1926 - 2005). I do not know his father's name, but family members have told me it was Joseph Bukowski. (this is an entirely other dead end...)
I have been able to trace one Ida Bare through 1910, 1920 and 1930 census searches in Ashe Co, NC.
I believe her parents were Jesse Bare (b. abt 1873) and Alice (unknown maiden name), and her siblings were Sampson (b. 1902), Sarah (b. 1904), Wiley (b. 1906) and Walter (b. 1910).
Unfortunately there are numerous Jesse Bares living in that region at the time, and I can't seem to trace parents for my Jesse or his wife Alice.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
