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., where I live. I will answer Questions and take photos in Fairfax, Arlington, and Loudoun Counties as time allows.|
Some of the surnames that I am interested in are Swink, Magarity (McGarity), Reid, Shepherd, and Payne.

I think I know you. Yes, I'm a relative; daughter of French and Jeannine Trammell. Spent my childhood in the field flying kites among other things...

Thank you so much for this photo. Linda

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.

The memorial number for Lee Roy Swink I just spoke about is #99519811.
|Scott Yates||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.

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).

Hi Fairfax Man, I wrote a note to Robin about Eliza. She was born a Fergusson in Mulberry Grove, Charles Co., MD. She was adopted by Daniel S. Gordon of Georgetown. Her marriage to John Nelson Torreyson is in the National Intelligencer. I can send it to you, but it is already in a note to Robin. I visited Alvin and Mable Magarity often from 1968 to 1972. If there's any other info I may have, you are welcome to it. Write me, btorreyson
