Biography

Bertha Shearer was born 8 sep 1874 in Michigan. Some family records indicate she was born in Ohio but the official records show she was born in Michigan. Her father was born in Ohio and I think somewhere along the line someone put Ohio as her birthplace in their pedigree chart. Her mother, Rebecca Beaton Shearer, died when she was a baby, and her father, John Shearer, died in 1877 when she was not quite 3 years old. After her father died Bertha and her older sister, Lennie, were taken in by their mothers parents, John and Hanna Beaton; when they died the two girls went to live with their parternal grandparents, John and Fannie Shearer. Later, Bertha lived for a while with her unkle , Charlie Shearer and his family in Stevensville, Michigan.
