Bob--According to some notes passed on to me about 4 years ago, Abner Embry McGarity was the oldest child of John and Mary Embry McGarity. (This is Mac's line, from Abner's brother John.) Abner E. wrote "Letters of a Confederate Surgeon: Dr. Abner Embry McGarity,1862-1865," a work I feel sure must be in the Georgia Archives in Atlanta. Steve may have gotten over to look it up.
Apparently there were a great many McGaritys.
Don't have much about the McGaritys but will be delighted to share.
Mac, if you read this post, please let me know your sources. According to First Families of Henry Co, GA (ed. J.H.H. Moore, printed by WH Wolfe, 1995) the wife of Abner was Mary Scales. Do either of you know any more about her or her parents?
