Trying to find descendants of Jacob and Susanne GARR to help in saving their Cemetery. I live in Alabama, so not much physically I can do. If you are a Garr.Wilhite and live in or near Louisville, please contact me and I will give you details of what has happened. If you want you can read the article about Jacob Garr here:http://history.ky.gov/pdf/Publications/Ancestors_v39n3_pt3.p... , and you can find the Cemetery at Find a Grave.
Jacob Garr was born 20 Mar 1782 in Culpeper County, Va., a son of Andrew Gaar and Christina Wilhoit. Jacob died 28 Oct 1854 in Jefferson County.

His wife Susan Garr (born 03 Feb 1781, Madison County, Va., died 07 July 1861, Jefferson County, Ky.*) "was her husband's double first cousin,** a daughter of John Gaar and Margaret Wilhoit.***

Susan and (husband) Jacob share the same maternal and paternal grandparents, Lorenz Gaar and Dorothea Blankenbaker and Johann Christian Willheit and Margaret ‘Peggy' Walburga Weaver.

They were married on 18 June 1812 in Madison County, Va., and had at least seven children," according to a Kentucky Ancestors article.

Thank you,
Sandi
