Adam - stayed in Lancaster county
George - sold in 1870 and moved to Franklin county
Jacob - moved to Mifflin county
Elizabeth married a Mr. Curley
Mary married a Mr. Glendenning
Barbara married a Mr. Northeimer and moved to Chester county

Philip married Elizabeth Donnahour and they had 7 children:
Mary married Fred Graf
Reuben married Ida Spotts
Annie married George E. Bewley

At Mrs. Philip Garman's death, only 6 of the 7 children were still alive
