Thank you for responding. Sounds like we are related.
I have some info I'd be glad to share, especially on Mary Alice Beamer's father. I also have some pictures of some of the Barris girls. I had no idea Clara was adopted!
The Barris family is on my grandmother's side.
Mary Alice Beamer is connected to the Croninger line, and I have a lot of info on them.
The Beamer and Barris lines are my brick walls and I have not been able to find much on Ransom's father,
and Mary's family.
I can email you privately for more info, if you like.
Sincerely, Kimberly Paul
