John, Since my original post I have found proof that Mary, wife of John McGarity, was the daughter of Simon Murphy.

1753 -- Surry Co., VA Wills Book #9 -- 1738-1754 Page 886
Simon Murfey, of Surry Co., planter. Will. Date 5 July 1753
Simon Murfey and Elizabeth Murfey (now Edward), Executors.
Wife: Elizabeth (Executrix). Sons: Richard of Southampton Co., Arthur of Surry Co., and Simon. Daughters: Catherine and Lucy Murfey, Elizabeth Hines, and Mary Magarrity. Grandchildren: Simon Murfey, James Murfey (son of Arthur) Witnesses: Samuel Peete, Simon Murfey and Catherine Murfey.

I have been trying to find a list of children for Patrick, son of John and Mary. I am a descendant of Henry Alexander McGarity (b. abt. 1810 in SC) and believe he may have been a grandson of Patrick, but have no proof.

I have done a lot of research in Virginia, but there are so many gaps as documents are no longer in existance.
