Robert Garvin was killed when his son was very young. The information on Robert was all he had been told about
his father. I wish I knew more about Robert; but thats when I hit a brickwall. I'm wishing that someone has a
Robert Garvin born in Ireland around 1820 in their family lineage as a son, brother, nephew, or grandson ect....
If anyone has any information please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please share this with others you
might know following the Garvin lineage.
