Hi Benny,

Here are links to the photo you requested, plus a photo of Asa's wife Frances and a photo of Burgess and his wife. Hopefully these are in the same family line you refer to in the posting. My Great-Grandfather was Burgess' son, also named Asa. My father, Harold Geer passed down a shaving mug that supposedly had belonged to "old" Asa. Burgess eventually moved to Ravenna, OH, my hometown, to live near or with his son Asa. I was told he was hit by a car in 1914 and could not recover from his injuries. Burgess' son Asa and my grandfather Lawrence Geer both worked for the Riddle Coach and Hearse Company in Ravenna. Lawrence drove President Harding's hearse to the cemetary during the funeral in 1923.

I have captioned these photos:
(click on the images to save them to your computer - they are a bit large, so they can be scaled down to print sharply at 300 dpi)
