My great Grandmother was Luci Garrabrant and lived in Jersey City. She had two brothers Jesse and Arthur and her mother was Sarah Garrabrant. Sarah's husband was in the civil war and suffered wounds at the Fredricksburg VA battle. I have records of several Garrabrant in the Bayonne/Jersey City area of NJ in the 1700 & 1800's.The Garrabrant family is one of the founding families for that area. The area was know as Bergen then and intermingled with New York and Essex county communities. As early as 1661 a Ferry to New York City was established. Most of the Garrabrants originate with Garrebrante Cornelius who arrived in NY in the 1660's. In the Dutch custom his offspring took his first name as their last. By 1776 the land now known as Bayonne was owned by three families the Van Hornes, Garrabrants and the Brinkerhoffs. They were farmers and brought their produce to NY markets by sailing slops
