My ggggggrandfather Peter Garey came to America from Ireland in the mid 1700's.There is oral history that maybe the name used to be McGarey or some derivation of Gary. He is apparantly listed in the 1790 census in Frederick Co. MD.He had 4 sons: John, Peter, Cornelius, and Frederick.The last two we have no info on.
This Gary family came from the eastern shores of MD adn NJ before the Rev. War and than later in PA.Confusingly enough there happen to be way too many Johns, Peters, Samuels etc to know who is who for sure.
Here is the rest of my line: gggggrandfather John born mid 1750's (MD) married a Catherine ??? Had 9 children: Elizabeth, Peter, John, Frederick, Samuel, Margaret, Anna, William, and Cornelius.
ggggrandfather Samuel born March 6, 1794(MD) married Ann??? and had 9 children: Richard, John, George P, Isabella, Catherine, Samuel Jr., William, Soloman, and Cornelius.
gggrandfather William born March 20, 1833 (Allegany Co. MD) and married Rebecca Gaumer and had 9 children: Isiah, Daniel, Catherine, Simon P, George E, James, Flora, Henry, and Minnie.
ggrandfather George born Jan 15, 1865 (Iowa) married Mary Martin and had 6 children: Charles, Nellie, Grace, William, Mabel and Mary.
grandfather William married Lola Chally father William married Rebecca Gary then comes me
I would truly appreciate if someone can connect to this line or even connect me back to Ireland.Thanks
