Subject: CLUES FOR THE SURNAME GARMONG
Date: Thu, 15 Apr 1999 09:45:37 -0400
I'm working on the family of Garmong. I recieved the following note about
one of the Garmongs. I'm wondering if Garmong, Allemong and I've seen the
surname Mong from this area could be the same family. I know that some of
the Garmong changed their name to Gormong, Garman, Garmon. Below this note
are some of the Desc of Christian Garmong, of Frederick Co. Va. If you have
idleas or suggestions, please let me know. With this uncommon surname, I
can't find his trail anywhere.

Notes for RICHARDSON GARMONG: [Gormong.FTW]
A postcard in the possession of Susan Hannum addressed to him as Mr. Richard
Gorman, Dennison, IL, reads: "Aug 19, 1881 Eugene Ind
Dear Brother when you see manuel and hear anything about the property please
write and let me know and when you see Anna tell her that I would like for
to send me the two dollars she owes me I wanted to see her before I come
away but did not get too [sic] I want you and Rhoda to take good care of
Mother and be sure and write and let me know of [sic] she gets sick write
soon I will be anxious to hear from you Molly"
This postcard would have been written within two years of the death of
Emanuel Sr. The "manuel" mentioned must be Richard's brother Emanuel. With
Jonas in Tennessee and Calvin, Charles and James all dead, Emanuel would
have been the eldest available son, likely the one to care for his father's
estate. Perhaps the property in question was the estate. "Anna" may be his
sister Ann Rebecca. The mother, Rebecca, evidently lived with Richard and
Rhoda after her husband's death.
"Molly" is evidently Mary, Richard's immediately older sister.
