I'm looking for information relating to the family of Dr. Milton Gary. His full name was John Milton Gary. Per 1860 records, he was 42 living in Crockett, TX with his brother, Harvey (age 38).He was born in South Carolina, but Harvey was born in Alabama.I'm guess he is part of the Garys that moved from Newberry, SC to Alabama.Based on information, it is believed that Milton was married to a Malissa McCraw in 1842 in Perry, Alabama.She is buried in Perry, Alabama (1823- 1853 per tombstone in Ocumulgee Cemetery).They had four children - William, Thomas, Mary, and McCraw.They are listed on 1860 census.
Milton would later marry Mary Ann Arledge daughter of John Fisher Arledge and Lucy Featherston.The only had one child who reached adulthood -Dr. John Milton Gary.My great, great grandfather was murdered in 1902 while making a house call in Galveston, TX.He married Ada Dickson Taylor of Wharton County, TX.They had one child, John Brooks Gary, my great - grandfather.
Mary Ann Arledge Gary, her son John Milton Gary, and her daughter, Sallie Gary were all buried in Groveton, TX.I have no idea what happened to his children from his first marriage nor where he is buried.
