1. Abraham1 GARN was born on 5 Sep 1810 in Bedford
Co., Pennsylvania, USA. He also appears as Abram GARN in the records. He appeared
on the 1840 U.S. Census in Jackson Twp., Sandusky Co., Ohio. He died on 29 Jan
1890 in Burr Oak, Marshall Co., Indiana, USA. He was a farmer.
was married to Susan GARN in 1828. Abraham and Susan appeared on the 1850 U.S.
Census in Jackson Twp., Sandusky Co., Ohio. Susan GARN
was born on 2 Dec 1815 in Ohio, USA. There is little doubt that her maiden
name was also GARN. Death records of at least seven of her children have been
located. Although the mother's name was unknown on several of those death records,
at least four listed the mother's maiden name as some variation of Susan with
the last name Garn. No record of another maiden name has been found for her.
She died on 11 Jan 1866 in Burr Oak, Marshall Co., Indiana, USA. Abraham GARN
and Susan GARN had the following children:
He was married to Lydia about 1867. Their marriage was probably in Marshall Co., Indiana. They appear on the 1870 U.S. Census in Union Twp., Marshall Co., Indiana. Abraham, along with several of his children, moved from Indiana to Nebraska some time after the 1870 U.S. Census because he appeared on the 1880 U.S. Census with Lydia in Beatrice Twp., Gage Co., Nebraska. His sons Martin, Joshua and Benjamin Franklin Garn were also in the township in the 1880 U.S. Census. That census corroborates other information that claims he was born in Pennsylvania. However, it also indicates that Abraham's father was born in Germany and his mother in Pennsylvania. He probably moved back to Indiana soon after the census because his son Martin moved back before 1 January 1881. Lydia was born about 1816 in Ohio, USA.
