We used to have a customer Hank Baer at my dads gas station in Somerset county NJ but of course I can't recall if it was spelled like that. I don't believe it was spelled like the paint. He owed a local radio station until he passed away. Figured I'd mention it in case it rings a bell.
Wrong family. I found his obituary, spelled Behre

Besides Russia and Ukraine, also search in Belarus - that was also an area that used to be part of Russia back in the day. I have ancestors from there - Minsk, Hlusk/Glusk, and Bobruisk are some areas where Jewish people lived.

I have a set of great grandparents from Minsk! My middle name was given in memory of that great grandfather.
