This is a quote from a book - THE SAILOR SPRINGS STORY
"On the evening of March 15, 1877 Henry GARST 31, his wife Anna Maria, their daughter, Lillie and Anna Maria's younger brother, Fred BRETH (so Anna Maria's maiden name was probably BRETH) whose mother had died when he was a small boy arrived by rail to the town of Clay City, IL then a place of 22 years standing."
"Henry GARST was b in Montgomery Co, OH on Sep 12, 1846. On Oct 7, 1869 he was united in marriage to Anna Marie..." He d Oct 23, 1914.
This man did not seem to be related to the GHARST people in the Ingraham area. I need to give you some names of that family. More later.
