Hi, My name is Barry Carley. I too am a descendant of Ambrose Bierce. Am trying to trace ancestry also. My Grandmother was Dorothy Mae Bierce Johnston. Married to George Johnston. Born 1900 in CT. Niece of Ambrose. died 1987 in fort Myers fl. having hard time finding records. Have picture of Bierce sister (grandmothers aunt)signed A E Bierce on back. Looks just like my grandmother! Very old pic. also have tintype in rough shape of Ambrose as child. Any help or communication would be appreciated. I live in Florida and can be reached at this Email address. It would be fun to communicate with other descendants, swap info. see what we can figure out!
Barry, this old message board gets very little use -- so I forwarded your message to our new Ambrose Bierce Bierce Facebook Group, which has a number of Bierce descendants as members, and which you are cordially invited to join. https://www.facebook.com/groups/ambrosebierce/
