David L Hare
My name is Dave Hare. I am decended from a line of Hares in North Carolina, pre Revoluntionary war. I have run into a roadblock there and can not find where exactly that they immigrated from. Family stories say Ireland, which is true, but DNA says I'm also Scottish and English. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Would anyone possibly remember an Albert or Raymond Hare? About 1900 'so from Meath Ireland
