Generation No. 2

A letter written in 1861to Joseph Garber by his mother, Fanny, was found. At
the time, Fanny was living in Exeter Twp, Berks, PA. In 1850 Census she was
living in Exeter as Head of Household with Israel 27 & James 16.

3. MARY3 GARVER (JOHANNES/JOHN2, SAMUEL1) was born 1780 in MD or NC, and
died 1869 in Dublin, Wayne, IN. She married PAUL CUSTER 1801 in Jessamine
Co, KY, son of JOHANNES CUSTER and ELIZABETH HAUSER. He was born February
13, 1778 in Bertie Co, NC, and died July 01, 1864 in Dublin, Wayne, IN.

Their son , Samuel G. CUSTER/CASTER, wrote:

My mother was born in North Carolina and raised near Lexington, Kentucky.

My grandparents on my mother's side were of German descent and were of a
stout, robust race of people. One of my uncles, Abraham Garver, lived to the
age of 100 years old and one aunt, Barbary Ritter, lived to the age of 103

My grandfather Garver was a minister and preached in German. I had also 3
uncles that were ministers in the same church. I have understood from my
father that they were restorationists, or what we call North Universalists,
that is the final restoration of all souls from sin and suffering, to
holiness and happiness. There is still some of the younger generations
living in Ohio, Indiana and Iowa, but I have never seen them.

Does anyone have a listing of all the children of John Garber Jr and Barbara
Zook. I would like to check my list. Am also interested in the
Floyd R & Kathryn G. Mason
