Dr. Peter Franklin Marion Geer is my great-grandfather. I submitted the information to the Calhoun County, GA history book that has been referenced to in messages regarding this ancestor. According to records from the Calhoun County Courthouse list of medical practitioners, he was a graduate of the Medical College of Georgia which is located in AUGUSTA, GA.
According to newspaper obituaries, Dr. Geer and his wife, Caroline Elizabeth Blocker, died within two weeks of each other of pneumonia in Nov. 1884 leaving my grandfather, William Idus Geer, and his five brothers orphans. Ralph and Walter died as children. One had congestive heart failure and the other had kidney failure (Bright's disease).
Your information on my grandfather's children is incorrect. He was married twice and had five children. William Idus Geer was married first to Ada Dancer. They had Peter Zack Geer, Sr., Laverne Geer (Bush) and Camille Geer (Ross). Ada Dancer Geer died in childbirth with her 4th child which also died. William Idus Geer married my grandmother, Ethel Johnson and they had my father, William Asbury Geer, Sr. and Walter Idus Geer.
I have no information regarding Dr. Peter Franklin Geer's parents other than they were born in Ireland. Dr. Geer was born in NY, NY about 1835 and was in Darien, GA by 1850 according to census records.
No further information on Stephen Blocker Geer, the youngest son of Dr. Geer & Elizabeth Blocker Geer is known other than he is believed to have moved to Texas as a young man around age 20.
