Hello. I am searching for any information concerning my Great Grandmother. I do not know what years she was a student. Her maiden name was Bear (Behr, Baer) whether or not it was shortened from something more, I do not know.
She married a man named Sharrow (Shorraw)but do not know if that was his original name or not. We think she was Mohawk, but do not know for certain. We know nothing about him, except the name. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi - What is your grandma's first name? There were no Mohawk Bear's or Sharrow's or Shorraw's. Any more clues?
