Greetings from Northern Virginia:
Read Mac McGarity's latest with great interest. Had meant to follow up with Steve W before now, who had answered me (thanx Steve)--but don't know where the early summer went.
Anyway, let me see what I can add from from up here. Probably mostly questions.
The DAR has a fairly extensive Rev War entry on a William McGarity who was born in Cecil Cnty MD, moved to Chester Cnty SC, and was in the SC militia (I believe) incl a stint as a Lieutenant in a Cavalry unit. I didn't see an entry on his brother, but I'll look again.
I also found an Abner (E, I think) McGarity who served as Asst Surgeon in the 21st GA during the unpleasentness of '61-'65. There is also the Gardner McGarity in the 24th GA I mentioned in an earlier entry--who I believe I must be related to somehow,'cause the name Gardner crops up again later. (There were some 50 McGarity's in the National Archives files as having been in Confederate service--counting all the spelling variations--but mostly "McOneR's.")
Finally, do your records connect to the McGarity's of the Vannah, Bowman, Royston (and later Athens)area--a little north of you? Those are the ones in my immediate background--although I still have to get down there and go thru records, graveyards, and things to try to get it all lined up better.
Thanx again, Bob McG
