Joyce..... I don't know how to reach you, but I live in Fredericksburg, VA too ! My grandmother was Rachel Garland who married John N. Yarber and settled in Unicoi, TN.

Her name was Rachel Jenet ("Nettie") Garland, b. June 18, 1888 in Mitchell, NC. and d. February 27, 1972 in the Buffalo Valley area of Unicoi County, TN. Buried at McInturf & Barnett Cemetary, Unicoi, TN. Funeral Service held at Marbelton Community Church, Unicoi, TN. She was married to John Newton Yarber, s/o Newton Yarber, s/o William Dawson Yarber, s/o Shem Yarber, and many generations "assumed" have been identified for that Yarber line as well, but not noted here.

Rachel's father was William G. Garland, b. abt. 1864 and d. abt. 1954. Rachel's mother was Elizabeth Norris, b. abt. 1864 and d. abt. 1904.

William G. was the son of Steven Garland but I don't have his date info at hand.

Elizabeth Norris was the daugter of William Norris b. 1838 in Sullivan Co. (TN I believe), who married Emeline White in abt 1856 in Washington Co., TN.

Would love to get together if you're still around here!

I have tried to email you recently, but am not sure you've received it, so I post it here.

Due to water damage from a storm, I have lost most of my genealogy paperwork and am recompiling everything now. I would love to have anything you can share with me regarding the Garland lineage. You mentioned a picture of my grandmother, Rachel Garland... is this one you have? I'd love to get a copy.

I have just acquired death certificates for Unicoi and Carter County, TN for the late 1800s and early 1900s. I am posting a list of these on the Ancestry.com and Genealogy.com boards... if any are of interest to you, please let me know :)

Thanks !

Teresa,
My grandfather was David Jackson Garland. He was a brother of your grandmother, Rachel Garland. There is a picture of your grandparents, John and Rachel Yarber along with two children named Ruth and Edith, in the heritage book "Unicoi County and its People 1875-1995". You may already be familiar with this but I thought I would mention it just in case. Do you own or know of any photographs of our great grandparents, William Garland and Elizabeth "Lizzie" McInturff or perhaps other Garland ancestors?
