Hi Jan, My research indicates that the Lamar Co., Garmany's descend from Hamiliton Garmany who was b. in Newberry Co. SC c1803. He md. Margaret McDill. Hamilton died of accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound while hunting birds, a few years after he moved to Walker Co., GA, from Gwinnett, Co., GA.
Hamilton Garmany served as Captain in the Greek Indian war in 1836 in Stewart & Gwinnette Co. GA. A record about his service is in the "History of Gwinnette County, Georgia" by James C. Flanigan 1818-1943, Vol. I, p. 115-145 and a Bio-Sketch on p. 360-363. Published by Tyler & Company, Hopeville, Georgia.
Hamilton's son George Washington Garmany md. Sarah Ann DeMara Liddell. They moved to Lamar Co. TX between 1860 and 1870. I think all the Garmany's in Lamar Co. descend from this family. I think these are their children: Fannie E.; William A.; Peter Hamilton; Moses L.; Mary Anna Margaret; Laura Josephine; Lilliam Tullula; Ralph Spencer; George Styles and Emma Damaris. I have lots of information to share, and I welcome any information that others can share on this family.
