Our family spelled it Geary, but research has shown that it may have been changed in the late 1800's from Garey. We believe we are of Irish descent, tracing the name from it's root O'Gara. Counties Cork, Sligo, and Waterford primarily. My search is for an Ephraim Garey (Geary) born in May of 1822 in VERMONT. Anyone with information please reply via email.
The name Garey can be found in many countries, inc. Germany, Ireland, England, Scotland and Canada, and Australia.
