​​​Garriott Family Genealogy

Welcome to my Garriott website..................


REFERENCES on this web page are in many forms. Early information is presented without specific reference. General references from a particular government agency are sent to a reference page. Specific references, such as marriage records from a courthouse, are listed on that specific page. Sometimes a single sentence has information from many sources.

COURTHOUSE RECORDS: show Book/Page numbers for courthouses I have been fortunate enough to visit. Military and pension records presented are abstracts of records from (hand-written, difficult to decipher) government sources. The (sometimes fanciful) words can be interpreted many different ways, dependent on the person collecting the information. I have tried not to correct spelling, even when I know better.

CEMETERIES: (reference 2) are presented on a single web page and their reference numbers are being deleted from the text as I wander among the pages.

GENEALOGISTS: Most of these records are built on the work of those genealogists listed in RED below, over the years. You will see their names throughout the text. Genealogy has been revolutionized in this computer age. I salute those who have slaved through limited information sources and provided their own family lines. It is obvious whose work is presented. I apologize if I have used your information and have not given credit.
