Girty Family Genealogy Forum
I am sure they must all be connected somehow, but who the parents actually were may never be known. So many different authors give conflicting accounts of where the Girty brothers were at various times throughout their lives, it would be really difficult to pinpoint to any great degree a detailed history of their day to days whereabouts. I have no doubt that Simon could have had children outside his marriage to Catherine Malott, but have never seen anything that has recorded him ever having been in Arkansas. Could be if he was the father, Simon and Simon's mother may have been in Kentucky, etc. at the time of conception and she moved on with the tribe to Ark. since their was so much movement among the Native American's at that time. Would be interesting to find out though. Your wife's family must have a great deal of history to tell. Would be wonderful to learn more about them.
