John McGarvey b. 1785-ish in Scotland or Ireland
I'm looking forinfo on a John McGarvey who married Elizabeth Eaken in 1806. She was born in 1785. Not sure what year he was born. Family is unclear on birthplace. Family lore says he was born in Scotland and she was born in Ireland, but this may be incorrect. They had a daughter, Jane McGarvey who died on the shipwreck of the Lady Elgin in Lake Michigan in 1860. She had $12,000 in gold sew in to her dress at the time. Her body was never found. Jane McGarvey was married to William Cook in 1831.
