Joseph Gastin GARLICK (b. 2 May 1827; Providence, Bedford, PA and died 28 Dec 1915; Fairview, Sanpete, Utah) is my GGGrandfather. He was divorced from my GGGrandmother Amy Amelia JONES. He and Amy Amelia were the parents of 8 children. I come from his son William HowardGARLICK's line.
Joseph was the only son of David Gaston GARLICK (1780-1843) and Elizabeth BUCK (1795-1887). He had 6 sisters; Hannah (1818-1892), Susannah (1820-1890), Mary Jane (1822-1900), Talitha Cumi, (1824- 1902), Sarah Elizabeth (1830-1904) and Eliza Elizabeth Grace (1835-1841). They were all born in Pennsylvania and died in Utah with the exception of Eliza, who died as a child in Nauvoo, Ill.
Joseph was a body guard for Joseph Smith. Two of his sisters, Talitha Cumi and Hannah were nannie's for Joseph and Hyrum Smith's children. David Gaston GARLICK was buried in Nauvoo, Ill. Elizabeth Buck GARLICK came to Utah and eventually settled in Springville where she died. Please let me know if you would like any more information on the GARLICK'S. I don't have much information on his 2nd wife Mary Jane Gillispie.
