In Reply to: Re: Snake Girty, Jeff (Jacob) Girty, Wilson Girty by James Sellars III of 181

After a little digging and question asking I came up with some information. The information you provided matches what I had found. Jeff Jacob Girty was the son of Snake Girty. Maggie Girty and Jeff Girty were married. Jeff had a child from another marriage named marie who married a man reffered to as "dod" parsons. I remember this well as growing up dod and marie only lived a few hundred yards from maggie and jeff.

Maggie's father was George Wilson Girty. That is where I get my middle name "Wilson" from. George Wilson Girty's father was John Jack Panther Girty.

Snake Girty's adopted father was Panther Girty.
Snake and Wilson Girty were both raised by Panther Girty, Snake being adopted and Wilson being his biological son.
This answered many questions I had about my grandparents both being named Girty before they were married. Now I understand how it happened. Snake's son and Wilson's daughter married. Jeff and Maggie.

They had 13 children.
Two of the children were twin boys being named Jeff and Jacob Girty. Another child being named George Girty, My father being named Kennith "Wilson" Girty.

Jacob Girty died just a few short months ago, he left numerous children and grandchildren behind. He was 62, his brother Jeff Girty still lives in the area. My father Kennith Wilson Girty died in 1996, he was 50. George Girty still lives in the webber/porum area. He lives in a home very near Jeff and Maggie's old home.

I understand that Panther Girty's father was George Girty jr. which make sense giving the naming conventions that have been used in my family naming children after aunt's, uncles grandfathers and such. I think we are up to 6 or 7 Kennith Girty's now.

Also from what I gather, George Girty sr was one of the Girty brothers, who's father was Simon Girty sr. who came from ireland.

If you can give me any more information I would be truly grateful.
