Response to Carolyn Garreau:I have traced the name Garreans (present day U.S.A.), TO Garrean (present U.S.A), Which have evolved from Garreau (early american & Canada), and France 1500 to present. One of the frist to change was Alphonse Garreau, changed to Alphonse Garrean while serving in the Confederate Army 1862,in a New Orleans,LO. regiment. If you or any one else has any more information to share,please post or E-MAIL me. Monte Garreans MGarreans2@webtv.net

Please share some of your information with me. I have traced
my ancestory to the late 1600's, where the name was spelled
Garren. These Garren's lived in North Carolina mostly.
If you could share some of your information, maybe I missed
something along the way.

Whats up Steve As I spell my name "Garreans", about half of our family spell it like yours, with out the "S". As I am of French decent I have traced our family back to the 1600`s in France to the Garreau name. I have actually found cases of relatives changing thier names from Garreau to Garreans during cesuses taking in the 1800`s and also a caseof a confederate soldier from Louisana during the civil war.Alphonse Garreau to garreans. Most of my immeditate family came out of Nebraska and Iowa in the late 1800`s. But a few were on the east coast and in Canada. Now were are spred out all over the United States,coast to coast. Now if you are of Irish decent you are most likely of Garren ansestry, because its a irish name. Good luck, let me know if you find anything new!

I too have family that spell their name with an 's' on the
end. It's funny you say that your family was from Iowa and
Nebraska. I currently live in Nebraska, but my grandpa moved
his family here from Iowa. Please share some of your ancestors that were from Iowa, there may still be a connection here. Some of my ancestors from Iowa are: Noah Garrean and his wife Catharine "Katie" Copple. Noah was a
son of George Garren and Ruth Faine. The period that these
people were alive would be early to mid 1800's. If either
of these couples appear in your ancestory, that is a definate hit, but still share some of your ancestors from IA, because there could be some other connection.

It is very funny that you refer to us as cousins, because
that is exactly what we are. You mentioned that your
father was Earnest Lyle, well Earnest Lyle is my grandfather's first cousin. Ernie and Mable were my grandfather's aunt and uncle. Noah garrean is in fact your
grandpa Ernest's great-grandfather. Noah Garrean and Catharine Copple had David Garrean who married Margaret McCready, they had Jacob Garrean who married Ella Howery.
Jacob and Ella had Ernest Garrean and my great grandfather
Charles. If you'd like, I have tons of information on your
family that I am willing to share with you. By the way, on
an interesting note, about twice a year, I visit your grandfather's grave when I go to visit Charles, David, Margaret, etc. They are all buried in the same cemetary.
It is true that some of Jacob and Ella's children started spelling their names with an 's' on the end. There are a few other spelling variations that I can inform you of if you would like.

Write back Cousin,
Steve Garrean Jr.

Steve, Whats up? Sorry I took so long getting back to you.I work for the railroad and I`m out of town alot. I had a gut feeling when you said your grandfather (charles) lived in Nebraska that we were related some how.So our fathers are cousins, My grandfather (Ernest) is your great uncle and your grandfather (Charles) is my great uncle. That makes us second cousin, is that correct? Yes, I would be interested in any other information you have on the family. Well cousin IM glad to know you! I`d like to keep in touch and maybe meet you someday when i`m up your way. I still have many reatives in the Omaha and Council Bluffs area. Later Monte

Sorry Monte,
I have been extremely busy lately, but I am very happy to share some more info with you. Let's see, I'm not sure where to start. My mother and father are Steve Garrean Sr. & Julieann Denise Oldenburg. Steve Garrean Sr. was born to Harold Paul Garrean & Viola Study. Harold Paul Garrean born to Charles Garrean & Ressa Wilbur, Charles is Ernest Lanford's brother. Charles & Ernest Lanford Garrean were born to Jacob Garrean & Ella Howery. Jacob Garrean was born to David Garrean & Margaret McCready. David Garrean was born to Noah Garrean & Catherine "Katie" Copple. Noah was the Garrean who changed the spelling of the last name originally, our name is derived from "Garren", but when Noah entered the Army, they mispelled his last name "Garrean", and he decided to stick with it, thus creating our versions of the name. I have so much more information including dates/locations/marriage dates, I also have our family traced all the way back to the first one over from Germany. If you would like more of my information that is fine, but if you could I would like more info on your branch of the family, like your aunts & uncles, brothers & sisters, mother with maiden name, dates, locations....if you could help me there, I will share all my info with you.

Cousin,
Steve Garrean Jr.
