My friend and fellow Jefferson researcher, Herbert Barger has lost his wife. Our prayers go out to him and his family.
Evelyn Dorothy Lee Bomar Barger
(December 6, 1930 – November 9, 2009)
She was a member of the Washington D.C. Constitution Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and served that association as Registrar and Treasurer for many years.
She was a collateral descendant of Thomas Jefferson and co-authored, with her husband, Herbert, the family genealogy book, “The Jefferson Family of Virginia.”
