It is my hope and has been, to tie my Grand father +, to a German linage, and could be possible to be Kin of the German family that Phillip Garner of Surry County North Carolina belonged. Points of interest to consider are:
#1. John Garner who married an Eaton lived on Dutch man Creek. Noted because of the Germans who made their homes there.
#2. Some of Johns children married German spouses.
#3. You would think a young woman would marry close to her parents as in state or city, [new Brittan twp in BuckCounty Pennsylvania, not North Carolina or Virginia.]
#4. A German John Garner was living in New Brittan on Margaret Eatons land as a renter. 1793 and owned land there from 1779 and kept it in the family for a century.
#5. That Garner may have moved back to Montgomery County Pennsylvania from Bucks County.
#6. Later Johns son Samuel moved back to New Brittan 1862 to own land and die there.
#7. Note: Phillips father and Grand father lived in Montgomery County, not far away.
#8. All links showing John Garner of Dutch man Creek is English and related to the Garner & Keene line has yet not to prove it with strong or plain to see evidence.
#9. The son of Ben Garner, Thomas Durham Garner or his son made a new start and in the late 1800s, It said, my line comes from Wales [England] and Germany. It is clear that Eaton was from Wales, and so it seemed clear the Garners were German.
So you see, [I think!]
That there should be good reason to think the John Garner on Dutch man Creek could be [German].
John Garner of New Brittan [Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Montgomery County, Pennsylvania had Eight children. The 6 that was still alive when John died is as follows: Samuel, George, Henry, Peter, Catherine Buntt, and Anna. Note: Perfer the youngest son born 1776 and died 1845. Henry was a preacher in Chester County,
Pennsylvania. Samuel went to New Brittan, Bucks County Pennsylvania in 1793. Samuel had children there two were George and Jesse.
The Information started in the last two pages come from The Book History Of Seven Central Bucks County, twp. By Edward Mathews. The Garner farm tris and published in Doylestown Democrat. There seemed that there was no remarks about John Garners wife. In around 1790 John was estimated to be 50 years old. His death took place September 1827 age over 90 years. He died in Gwynedd, in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Buried in the Mennonite buring ground at line Lexington.
Now some data on my John Garner of Dutch mans Creek in Surry and Rowan Counties, North Carolina.
Could it be he has no paper trail, because he was Born in Rowan County. I doubt that.
Was some of his children born some where besides Surry or Rowan County, North Carolina.
I have Johns will and the will of some of his children.
Johns wives seemed to be, 1st, Alcy Eaton, mother of all children.
The names of John and Alcy Garner is as follows: #1. John who married Catherine Hartman.
#2. Jacob, who married Mary Hoots.
#3. William who married Eve Can. Benjamin married Margaret Eaton.
#4. Burgess, who married Mary Hicks.
#5. Henry E. who married Elizabeth Reves.
#6. Anna married George Wilkins.
#7. Lidia, married William Wales.
#8. Elnora, married John Miller.
Much work has been found on Johns children [But] not John.
John Garner the father of the above had a 2nd wife. Margaret Seigler and husband went to the same church as John and his family. John and Margaret married at a late age. I have their marriage request. He was still alive when Margaret died. Stated in the will.
There is a list of Rowan County in 1778 it shows a Peter, Henry, Phillip Garner who Iam sure are all German and the same family. Also there was a Job. That one could be part of the Garner leeve line [English] maybe.
Note: This German family of Phillip Garner is the line from Glenna Beck here in Pueblo. She lives in Belmont Area of Pueblo, Colorado.
The long and short of it all is.
No body I know of, Knows much about John Garner of Dutch man Creek [my line]. Some claim the line follows the Parrish Garner line, others say same line different branch out of North Hampton County, North Carolina.
Others say his line is John Mathew Garner. But are divided between Garner/and English.
So there you go!!!
If we never know John we will never know ours.
