Jeff thanks for posting these pictures. Trying to do some of the genealogy now for our side of the Geer line. I'm your Mom's first cousin, Ira's daughter. Glenn was our Grandfather.

Geer and Wadding Family

My Great-Grandpa told me a story several times about him heading into Wyoming around 1917 to live with his Aunt Mathilda. He always said we had family out there last name was Geer. I found this photo and it all came together! Thanks for sharing! Contact me anytime.

Geer Family

Jefferey. My grandfather is the great grandson of Gerald and Mathilda and the son of Perry Geer. He would like to get in touch with you.


My Great-Grandpa Paul Wadding was born in 1900 and he told me this story several times about him moving to Wyoming to stay with his aunt, last name Geer. Not sure what year he came back to Pennsylvania. I did a little searching and found this photo which just put the puzzle together and confirmed everything he had told me! Thanks for sharing. Contact me anytime, would be a pleasure to talk to you.
Best Regards,
Paul Wadding
