I believe you are interested in the Garlands from Milton, NC. Unfortunately, the oldest member of my Garland family from Milton, NC passed away this August (Rachel Garland Long). The last time I spoke with her she was mentioning other Garland relatives. She said I had a cousin named Osborne who married Eliza and remembered a few of their children's names: Robert, Jasper, Dorsey & Bettie. I think I saw a message from you on one of the genealogy boards mentioning some of the above names so I thought I would e-mail you. My great/great-grandmother was Fanny Garland (she had 8 or 9 children) and my great/grandmother was Caroline Garland. Perhaps we are related. Good luck in your search.
I am still trying to gather info.
