Re: Abert Garrard of Alabama/Mississippi
My aunt sent my mother and I information that she had found on the Garrard family.There was a book published about Gov. Garrard of Kentucky which included some family history.William Garrard, the father of Gov. Garrard, lived in Va.Three brothers who are thought to be his cousins came in the 1700s.They were Robert, John, and Jacob.The brothers and William were supposed to be decended from a French Hugonot named Peter Garrard who went to England with two sons when the Protestants were thrown out of France.Jacob settled in NC, Robert in SC and John lived for a while in SC and then GA.I am a decendent of John's son Jacob who was born in 1762 and fought in the Rev. War.
