On Saturday Stefani came across news articles on several DeGarmo's. It's
too bad that often the bad ones get the noteriety. I'll address those
DeGarmo members I know about.

Elizabeth DeGarmo was killed in East Honan, China on December 22, 1947 while
serving as a missionary. Her father Peter A. DeGarmo, was killed in a gold
mine accident (1897), and her grandfather was Err DeGarmo. Err was a
brother to my GG grandfather John DeGarmo.

I'm including below an Ahnentafel Genealogy Report regarding Elizabeth, her
father and grandfather.
