The five hundred and eighty-ninth note in a series on the Germanna Colonies

The fourth surviving child of Andreas Gar and his wife Eva Seidelmann was
Elizabeth Barbara Gaar who was born in Bavaria 11 Feb 1730. In Virginia, she
married Michael Blankenbaker, the son of John Nicholas Blankenbaker and
Apollonia Kaifer. Michael was the brother of Dorothy Blankenbaker who
married Elizabeth Barbara's brother Lawrence. Seven daughters are given in
the book "Garr Genealogy" with estimated birth years (one seems to be known
exactly). Using the dates from the book, the seven daughters were

28. Jemima, b.1745, m. Michael Crigler (?), m. Absalom Utz,
29. Mary, b. 1747, m. Daniel Wilhoit,
30. Margaret, b. 28 Nov 1749, m. John Clore,
31. Elizabeth, b. 1753, m. John Wilhoit,
32. Eleanor, b. 1755, m. Elias Crisler,
33. Christina, b. 1760, m. Ephraim Utz,
34. Rosanna, b. 1763, m. Lewis Wilhoit.

Several of the estimated birth dates above are in error, some by a
significant number of years. Some information on this subject comes, not
from birth and baptismal records, but from confirmations at the church.
Three of the girls have recorded confirmations and two of these give the
ages of the girls. The confirmation record does not give the parent's names
but the women can be assigned confidently to Michael and Elizabeth Barbara
because no other Blankenbaker family duplicates these names.

Rosanna was confirmed in 1785 at the age of 18 so she was born in 1766/7,
not 1763. Eleanor was confirmed at 16 in 1782, so she was born in 1765/6,
not 1755. Jemima was confirmed in 1777, age not specified but say 17 which
was a typical age. This would make her birth year ca 1760, not 1745.

There is no reason to assign a birth year of 1747 to Mary since her children
appear from 1774 to 1788. The birth date given for Margaret is consistent
with the appearance of her children. Elizabeth was the second wife of her
husband and children appear from 1768 to 1793. Christina's husband was born
ca 1762/3 and they were married in 1783. From the confirmations, the one
specific date, ages of the husbands, and appearance of the children, the
birth dates that I would assign are

Margaret 1749, Elizabeth 1752, Mary 1754, Jemima 1760, Christina 1763,
Eleanor 1765, and Rosanna 1767.

Under this assignment, Elizabeth Barbara, the mother would have been 37 when
Rosanna, the last child, was born. Also the mother would have been 19 when
Margaret was born, not 15 as the Garr Genealogy would have her.

The five hundred and ninetieth note in a series on the Germanna Colonies

The last note reported that one of the daughters of Michael Blankenbaker and
Elizabeth Barbara Gaar was Jemima who was said to have married Michael
Crigler. Researcher Cynthia Crigler has conducted a search for this Michael
Crigler and could find no evidence in the civil or church records (see
Beyond Germanna, v.10, n.1). We know that the "Garr Genealogy" was in error
by fifteen years in the birth date for Jemima. Apparently, the story for
her, with respect to a marriage to Michael Crigler, was in error and Arthur
Crigler, who wrote a Crigler genealogy, carried forward the mistake that had
been made in the Garr Genealogy.

In addition to the four children of Andreas Gar and Eva Seidelmann that have
been given, there was another daughter, Maria Barbara, born 15 Jul 1728 (in
Bavaria), who is said in the Garr Genealogy to have died in Philadelphia.
Next some evidence will be examined which says that she lived long enough to
move to Virginia where she married.

Land grants in the Northern Neck followed a slightly different procedure
than land patents from the Crown. In the Northern Neck, a person applied for
a warrant and paid his fees. The warrant specified how many acres he had
paid for. He took the warrant to a surveyor who measured off the ground for
him. (The land may have been marked already as a claim even though it was
not officially recognized.) After the warrant was issued and before the land
was surveyed, the warrant, which was a valid claim or title, might be sold
or given away. The surveyor often added notes to the warrant. The warrants
have been preserved and published by Peggy S. Joiner in several volumes as
"Virginia Northern Neck Warrants and Surveys." In volume 2 of this series
(for Frederick County), we read the following entry:

"Debold Christler, assignee of Christian Tival, assignee of Andrew Garr 2
Oct 1751 - 6 Jun 1752; south side of South Fork of Shannandoah River
adjacent Zachory and Micall Blancumbaker. Chain carriers: Lawr. Garr, Peter

"Above was a warrent to And. Garr and given to his son-in-law Christian
Tival. Surveyed for C. Tival of Culpeper Co."

Andrew Garr could only be Andreas Gar, the patriarch. The next Andrew, his
grandson, has an estimated birth date of 1750. Theobald Christler was the
son-in-law of Andreas Gar as was also Michael Blankenbaker. Lawrence Garr
was the son of Andreas and a brother-in-law of Theobald and Michael. This
much we understand but the two names, Christian Tival and Peter Cree, are
not discussed in the Germanna literature.

If we are to believe the warrant in its obvious reading, Andreas Gar had a
son-in-law, Christian Tival, who married a daughter who could only be Maria
Barbara. The husbands of the other two daughters, Theobald Christler and
Michael Blankenbaker, are given in the warrant and its notes.

In 1751, Maria Barbara would have been 23 which meant that she could have
been a mother a few times already. And perhaps she lived longer as there is
little reason to believe that she died then. Possibly there is another whole
branch of the Garr family which has been overlooked. The next note will
continue this theme.
