I think your 8/1 followup got mangled in xmsn..'cause, at least what I received, just sort of runs out in the middle of what I suspect is the word "John."
You had said, tho, that you had pretty solid info "back to Abner" which if you have in some sort of E mailable form (or snail mailable for that matter, 'cause I'd be glad to send you a SSAE), I would really appreciate learning whatever I can.
I remember my Grandfather (WK McGarity of Athens, who grew up in Vannah, I believe) telling us that there were McGarity's in Elberton to whom we were not-too-distantly related, but he never named any names that I remember--much less mention common ancestors or how/when they all got to that part of the state. (I found the ref to them all having been in Carroll Cnty BEFORE moving to NE GA really interesting, as movement back to the east from "almost Alabama" seems unusual enough to prob have a good story behind it.
Anyway, I can't say for sure that the Abner McG that started all this discussion is in my background, but I suspect so--and what you have tracing the Elberton McGs back that way would prob help.
Mary and Steve--would also greatly appreciate anything y'all might have along these lines.
And again, if anyone needs any Confederate McGs (or even inlaws) looked up in National Archives, let me know their full names and Confed State of service, and I can prob help next time we have a really rainy Saturday. (Nice Northern VA Satudays are of course for battlefields.)
Many thanks, BobMcG
