I found and old Birthday and Anniversaries book kept by my g-grandmother. Her Father's Mother was Ann Garniss. In this book I have a list of over 30 Garniss names. I know that most of my family came from Ont. Canada, and many decendants are still there today. I'll list the names in the book and hope someone can make a connection
Ann Garniss b: 11-Aug-1840 d: 24-Sep-1902married Richard Coultas had children Charles Richard and WilliamShe re married a gentleman by the last name of Barker.Her parents I don't know the names, book only said grandfather Garniss born 1800 died 1877 and grandmother Garniss born 1806 died 1899
Here is the list of names that I am trying to figure out relationships.
