I have a Mahlon Stanley Garis b. Oct 18, 1839 New Britain, Bucks, Pa and your Mahlon Stanley may be his son, he and Sarah Ann Beidleman had 6 children, Joseph, William, Carrie, John Frank Cottman and Mahlon Stanley probably Junior or II. Mahlon Stanley Garis b. 1839 was son of William Garris b. 1811 and Lavinia, then Johann Phillip Geres III, back to Hans Jacob Geres b. 1637 in Germany. I am at chgeagle@yahoo.com

Mahlon Stanley was the brother to my grandfather, Abraham Augustus("Abe", m. Mary Ella Coller), who son, Mahlon A.("Mal", m. Vera Sofie Martens) was my father. We are, of course, cousins! Your g.g.grandfather was known as "Uncle Mahlon" by my father and his cousin, Chester A., whose father was John Albert(m.Mary), and older brother to Mahlon Stanley.
I am still searching for earlier Garis roots. Please feel free to contact me.

Dear Chris,
Yes indeed! We are in the same family! John Garis (your grandfather) and my grandfather, Abraham(Abe) were brothers. I don't know if we ever met, although as child we would visit my grandparents in Reading. Your mother's brother, Chet and his wife, Grace, were the main family members I knew as a child, although we visited Betty Mason, as your grandfather lived with the Mason's here in Florida. Bobby Mason was a bit older than my sister (Verlane) and I, so we never knew him very well. I am still in contact with Chet's children, Gerry, Skip and Bonnie and see them when they visit Florida. My Mom just celebrated her 97th Birthday in July, but my Dad died about 26 years ago. My sister also died unexpectedly almost 5 years ago.
As for the "Mahlon's" in the family there were several. My Dad was Mahlon Augustus, but he was named after his Uncle Mahlon Stanley, Abraham and John's brother. I have photos and stories, but have not had time to assemble much to add here since I take care of Mom. Please send a note if you would like to exchange emails and more info.
All my best,
Lonny G.
