Hi Harris,thanks for your response.I have information on my line back to Moses McGarrah/Martha D.They had a son, James McGarrah, b 1/26/1809 in Lancaster, SC, d 5/7/1886 in Marion (County, I think) GA.James married Elizabeth Croxton (Father, John Croxton, mother Elizabeth VanLandingham).Among other children (Moses, Willian Marion, Emily, Mary Minter, Elizabeth and Melissa) they had a daughter, Martha, b 10/22/1835 in Lancaster, SC, d 12/14/1884 in Pelahatchie, MS. Martha married Peter Fleming Ragan 12/25/1855 in Sampson, GA.Martha and Peter Fleming were my g grandparents.
I am seeking further confirmation of the above and any additional siblings/dates/corrections/etc. of ones mentined above.How are you related to Moses (first one)? Any additional information?Do you see your Thomas fitting into this family in some way?I think that William Marion may have gone to AR as there are lots of McGarrahs there.Any information on William?
I can supply you with more information after my g grandparents if you are interested.The above is about all that I have prior to them except on the Croxton/VanLandingham branch.
I think that genforum scrambles the e-mail addresses to prevent spaming.That may be what has happened to the address and your attempts to contact me privately.I will include my address again, below, just in case I made an error in sending it to you the first time.
Best regards and SLOW down man!Its O.K. to burn the candle at both ends, however not at the same time!
