Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in family history for many years, but have just gotten serious about it in the last ten or so. My family is from Fairfax County, Va. I live in Gainesville, Va. I will answer Questions and take photos in Fairfax and Prince William Counties as time allows.
Some of the surnames that I am interested in are Swink, Magarity (McGarity), Reid, Shepherd, and Payne.

RE: Schurtz Cemetery
someone else told me that this cemetery was separate from Beulah cemetery. I have been there, and these cemeteries are RIGHT BESIDE each other, literally only divided by a chain link fence. though, after having gone there, I think they are indeed two separate cemeteries, though without that small fence, they would appear to be the same cemetery. hope that helps answer your question.

RE: Photo
Thanks for the information. I made the connections in the memorial and it also cleared up a question. This made them related to me in a very remote way through alot of marriages. Looks like it helped us both out.

RE: Photo
You are welcome. Next to Roy Addison Swink's grave was a Lee Roy Swink. I am unable to make a connection, However I did go ahead and make a memorial with the very limmited information. If you know any more will correct and/or if related will transfer. You always hope it's the missing link.

I transferred to you as you have a connection. I have no connection at all.
Good luck with your family history research.

RE: Eliza J. Fergusson Gordon Torreyson
Hi Barrett, Sorry to be slow in answering, things got complicated at home, better now. I really have no good information on the (what I've always called) the Magaritys. But I am sure you are right to write it McGarity. So all I have is this: The son of Jonathan McGarity, John Swink McGarity (1865 - 1930) married Annie Virginia Torreyson 20 Dec 1894. She was born 22 Aug 1872, daughter of John Nelson and Eliza J. Torreyson, and she died 27 Dec 1952. My parents called her Aunt Annie. My info on McGaritys came from Alvin and Mable in 1972 and this is what I have (not much): Alvin Magarity (sic), son of John S. S. Magarity, born 1 Oct 1914, [died July 1973], married Mable Gardner. I don't know anything about the earlier McGaritys. Thank you for what you sent to me. I visited Alvin and Mable in the summer of 1972,and found that Alvin had had a stroke which left him blind. He was very depressed and she was taking care of him and not knowing how to really help him. Your name is Barrett, my first name is Browne. (Yes, Browne).
