I realize this is an old message, but my mother's maiden name is Garfoot. Can you give me any more info on how the different spellings are related?

I am pretty sure we are related. My mother's maiden name is Garfoot' her father Charles, I believe his father William. I remember something about Rutland, England. I would be very interested in coat of arms and meaning of family name if you would be kind enough to send. Also, who are your parents and grandparents? I can ask my mother for more info. I will look and see what information I can forward to you.

My name is Sarah Garfoot. My father is Wayne, and my uncle (wayne's brother) is Glenn. Their father is Keith, and Keith has a sister named Carmen. Keiths father is Vaughn Garfoot. This is what I have off hand, but I will gladly email you back some more of our family history. My grandfather told me that one of his relatives a long while back made a journey to find out our history, and she apparently ended up in Germany. If you will email me back at my actual email address, I will gladly share with you anything that I can get! Thanks!

Kevin,
Does your mother have a sister by the name of LaVern and a brother by the name of Roman? If so, you and I are second cousins.

Hello Kevin,
Are you surprised to see a cousin online? If so, I am glad I could make you happy. Your sister, Eve, and I are close to one another in age and I only live about 1 mile or so from Roman and Henera's farm. Your mother, Dellas, (as my mom called her) were first cousins--making you and me second cousins. My grandfather was George Garfoot--a brother to your grandfather, Charles. The parents of George and Charles were John and Emily Simpson Garfoot. George and Charles were the youngest of the 9 children John and Emily Simpson had. My mother's name was Alice Garfoot Lukken and her parents were George and Elizabeth Meyer Garfoot.
I have been interested in genealogy for both sides of my family as well as both sides of my husband's family for many years. Just recently I received notice of a Simpson family reunion that will be taking place in June in the Madison area. The "Simpson's" are a branch of the family I am not real familiar with so I am going to the reunion. Another cousin that you and I have is more familiar with that branch and she is going to come also. About all I have done with the Simpson's are to gather Civil War Pension records. I have done the same for John Garfoot. Have you ever gone into the online site for the Wisconsin Veteran's Museum? If you haven't, try it and you will see John Garfoot listed in the roster of soldiers as well as relatives of John's wife. Another second cousin of your's has the Civil War sword that John used during the war.
If I can help you with anything, or if you are interested in attending the Simpson (John's wife's maiden name) family reunion, let me know. I will try to supply you with the needed information.
Give my hello's to your mother and also to Eve.
