Hi: Mary Scales was born in 1787 in VA and died 1872 in GA, being buried at a Ben Hill, GA Church Cemetery. Mary was my GGG Grandmother. I am descended from Abner and her through their son John McGarity (1807-1893), then John Cass McGarity (1848-1910), then David Abner McGarity (1881-1949), then my father, Leonard Wilson McGarity Sr. (1912-1977). I was born in 1955. Hope this is of use to you.
