Re: GARRETT SAWMILL-ALABAMA 1800's
I have an idea we are related.Check and see if your Garrett comes from Laurens Co. SC.I know that Edward Garrett and his wife Anne Bayne West Owsley Garrett had about 17 kids!!!!!!I think I read somewhere about some of the sons going to AL.I come through Moses Hosea b. 1785 to Elijah Garrett who lived in Bedford Co. TN to James Garrett who was b. in TN, but the family came to Benton and Washington Co. AR early on.James Garrett fought for the Confederacy under the Cherokee Chief, Stand Waite, in the Cherokee Cavalry during the Civil war.James also stsrted a church in Washington Co. AR and it's still there.
Hope to hear more from you about your Garretts.It helps to piece the story together.Let me know if we are cousins!Drina
