I have the book "Letters of a Confederate Surgeon: Dr. Abner Embry McGarity" (1832-1915). It was published around 1946 by the GA Historical Society. I have gone thru the entire book and extracted all McGarity family references to my FTW file. The book is a wealth of info back to Abner McGarity (1780-1832) and descendants. I would just post my file, but feel I need to go over it carefully for other dubious information which is interspersed, primarily from the net, first. I am willing to do lookups based on what I have. Good luck.
