Lewis Garr, b KY, wife Mary F.

I am interested in Lewis GARR, and in his wife Mary F. GARR.

I find a Lewis GARR, age 4 in the h/h of Adam GARR (45, b VA) and Margaret (30) in the 1850 Green Co, KY census.

I find Lewis GARR, b Jan 1855 in the 1900 Hart Co, KY census (Hart and Green border each other) Lewis' wife is Mary E?, b Jan 1857. They had been married 7 years, and she reports 4 children, 3 living. The children in the h/h (both born before 1893): Nellie, b Mar 1888, Willis L., b Jun 1892.

I have an entry from "eaves of the Gum Tree" that mentions one of my greatgrandmother's sisters marrying a Garr. She had a sister named Mary Frances. However, in the 1860 census I find Mary Frances m to a Van Fleet. From the above, it appears that Mary E? is a 2nd wife.

I find on the KYVS database death records for Lewis GARR (5 Nov 1917 Hart Co) and Mary F. GARR (26 Aug 1932).

Does anyone descend from either of these and can help me?

Thanks,

Marguerite
