I may have what your looking for. Johanna Bunnell was the second wife of George Garrabrant. They had three daughters, Emma, Laura, and Charlotte. I believe Johanna married him around 1848. The girls were born
1850,1852, 1854 respectively.They lived in the Newark area in 1860. I'm looking for information on George. I believe he was born in Patterson, NJ around 1811-1813.

I have a peter Garbrant Sept12,1779-Dec 12,1825. married to Ann Van Winkle. They had 2 children: Catherine V B 9/18.1814-2/7/1892 and Abraham 1819 who had 7 children.
I also have some info on Amzi born in 1818 and died @ 12/14/1873. An Amzi appears in in the 1850 Census page 323. There was a daughter Laura born 11/19/1839 and died 12/19/1843. He may be buried in the Mt Pleasant cemetery in Newark. I also have an Amzi dob7/24/1834 son of Peter E or G who was baptised in Stone House Plains on 11/9/1834. There is also an Amzi who fought in the Civil War Co A 14th Connecticut Infantry He lived in Newark in 1863 and was a leather manufacturer. His pension application indicates he had a family. He was born 1828 or38.

Read your message reply to Roy Kierstad. Abraham is my gggrandfather. He married Susannah Fielder 2/14/1847. I have no info on her parents, etc. Do you know where she is buried? (d 9/7/1870). Also, Francis G was the 7th child. He served in US Army around 1900. Have no further info on him. Perhaps you have questions I can answer. Use my e-mail to communicate if you like.

Surnames: Garrabrant/Garrabrandt
I have a soundex copy of the 1900 census in NJ. Vol 58 ED 132 sheet 10 line 31

Amsey Garrabrandt
W b July 1833 age 66 born NJ Passaic County Paterson Pearl St 65
Garrabrandt Mary D W Apr 1847 age 53 born NJ
Roy M S Sept 1883 age 16 born NJ
K?????/Sadie M D Born Sept 1872 age 27 born NJ
William Looks like GS born Sept 18893 age? NJ
Butler (looks like) GS born Mar 1895 age 4 NJ

I can't read Sadies last name ink smeared.
Note on bottom of page says see also it looks like Ganabrandt, Amsey.

You may try to find this on the actual census it may be the person you are looking for.

This is not one of my Garrabrant Family to the best of my knowledge.
