I have a copy of the book. I also found a copy of this book at a Mormon Genealogical Library. I bet you could order this book through your local library. They would have to bring it in for you. I also have our line which is through Govenor James Garrard/Elizabeth Mountjoy > James Garrard/Nancy Lewis > Massena Garrard/Elizabeth Fry > Edward Hector Garrard/Susan F. James > Mary Slemmons Garrard/Albert Gallatin Johnson, Jr. > Anne Mary Johnson (who is in the book by Anna Russel des Cognets)/Charles Owen Bride > Kenneth Gregory Bride/Dorothy Elizabeth Henrich > to me Cathryn Anne Bride. I have our family genealogy on the internet.

I am interested in any family connections. Thank you!

Dear Donald, What a wonderful response to my inquiry. My great grandmother was Massena's daughter. She was Mary Slemons Garrard and she married in to the Johnson clan.

We are of the same line. Where do you live?
I am so interested in any Missouri family history. Do you know any?

If you go into the and look up James Garrard or Massena you will find his line. Actually I have it in place to the 1600 on the Mountjoy side. I have not entered it yet. I must do so.

I am also interested in your lineage. I would love to have it added into our family tree. If you send me your e-mail address I will forward you an invitation into the myfamily program where all of our family now resides in peace. Ha Ha Ha.

This is great! I look forward to hearing from you. Cathryn

Cathryn, your great grandmother wasn't Massena Garrard's daughter, she was a granddaughter and her father's name was Edward Hector Garrard (1827-1883). Do you have information re the Mount Lebanon home near Paris, Kentucky?

You are soooooo GOOD! You are right. As soon as I sent that last e-mail I realized my mistake.

No, I want to go there. Actually there are Garrards still living there. I wrote them, but received no response. I imagine they get a lot of mail, and do not want to be involved/burdened/etc. We are a BIG clan at this point.

I was trying to figure out how far removed I am. Me, my dad, my grandmother, Mary Slemons, Edward Hector, Massena. So we are probably of the same generation.

Where do you live? I live in Sacramento, California. I was born in 1944.

You do not say if you knew any of the Missouri history. I am so interested.

I am so glad you responded. Your cousin, Cathryn

I am a 6th generation descendant of Governor Garrard and I am trying to find out who his real Mother is. I have found 3 books which give her name as Mary Lewis and 3 books which give it as Mary Naughty. Anna Russell des Cognets book has it both ways in different places. This really perplexes me.

My line is: Governor James Garrard/Elizabeth Mountjoy>Col. Daniel Garrard/ Lucinda Toulmin>Gabriel Winters Price/Elizabeth Ann Garrard>James D.G. Potter/Ann M. Price>Howard E. Bonebrake/Elizabeth Ann Potter>John H. Bonebrake/Myrtle D. Smith>Janet C. Bonebrake

Any information welcome.

I am looking for information on who the parents of my Great-Grandmother Gabriella Augusta Hawkins were. I know she was a granddaughter of Governor Garrard of KY (how I received my middle name). Her first husband was George Washington, grandson of Laurence Washington (brother of President George Washington). Her second husband was my Great-Grandfather Leo Tarleton of Georgetown, Scotts County KY.
I would be interested in any info as I just discovered this connection.
