My Cousin Charlotte & I like to call this lineage the BBB's
(Bar/Bare/Bearfield) since we have found most everyone shown on this page
at some point with the soundex spelling of the surname.
I had worked on the BBB line several years just dabbling along, then one
day in Feb. 2002 I received an e-mail from Charlotte in regard to a posting I
had put on the internet a few years back. Turns out she & I were second half
cousins! We soon became like sisters and off we went in search of our BBB
roots.
We are full of questions without answers, have laughed until our sides hurt,
cried over the sad past of some and excited to find just a hint of a clue during
our research which isn't over yet. We still have a long way to go and we have
every intention of getting there (someday)!
