Dear Family Genealogy Forum
If you are searching for Dears in La please,if possible put birthdate or at least around when they were born of the person you are looking for.There is such a mixup of names on the census that the spellings overlap withDear/ Dyer/Dyess/Dial/Dyal/DOYAL and every spelling in between, and for every James Dear there is probably 3or more James Dyers I have had such a hard time pinpointing who is who. If it not for the fact that I know the area they lived I would never figure out who was who. I have William b 1846 James b 1857 sons of John Dyer b circa 1815 who may posibly be Dears.I know they were in Rapides parish in 1850 any help is appreciated.
