Several Garris went from Northampton Co, Nc, Halifax Co., Nc and New Hanover Co., NC in the 1840's. Some to Washington Co, others to Lauderdale Co., and other areas of Alabama then some stayed in the Muscle Shoals, Ala area and Leroy, Washington, Ala and other areas. Some went on to Louisiana, Texas, Missouri and other states. Any information is appreciated. We have 12,000+ names and are trying to tie in some loose connections.
