In Reply to: Australian Garmony/Garmany Family by William John Garmony (John) of 85

MY name is Alfred Garmany, I am living in Greer South Carolina. My Great-Great-Great Grandfather came to the United States in 1777 or 1778 from Monaghan County, Ireland. His name is John Garmany.
Here is some of the information that I have in my Family tree book.
"In 1775 there was at least one family of Garmany's in Monaghan, Ireland. They gave five acres of land for a presbyterian church, known today as Garmany Grove Church. I have written to the clerk of this church to try to get the names of the first members, but maybe due to the fighting going on there I have not received an answer altho my check was cashed.
According to a Doctor Garmany in London, England there is only one Garmany still in Monaghan, Grace Garmany. A Hans Garmany went to Sidney, Australia. The others came to the United States of America.We do know John Garmany came to South Carolina in the mid 1700 with two Brothers. I have not been able to prove just who the Brothers were.
We know there was a Hugh Garmany in New Berry district, South Carolina in 1790 who handled some of John's business transactions"
I have no informatiom on who their parent's were. That is about all I have. I know that somewhere down the line we are all related but it is hard to know how.
Let me hear from you.
Alfred Garmany
