I am Martha Garren(maiden name) and my family came from Buncombe Co. N.C.I have info. that Joseph/Thomas is my line(perhaps his father was Andrew).Used to correspond with David Gilbert of NC(Garren Goodies) and his evaluation was my line was Andrew.But, this has never been proven.
My father was Samuel Edgar Garren, b. 1896 Roff Okla.son of Nathan Mitchell Garren.Nathan's wife was Martha Jane Vanlandingham.She was from MS. This family had previously been in Pope Co. AR.
Samuels brothers were: Henry, Earl, & John.My father, Samuel, & his family went to CA in 1934-35 and settled in the Los Angeles Area.Samuel died on Dec. 7, 1937 in Huntington Beach CA.Is buried at Sawtelle VA Cemetery in Los Angeles CA.(was a Vet. of WW.I)Anyone researching this line please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.Thanks
