All information set forth was obtained by extensive research of online records, US Census records, Military record, birth, marriage and death records, history books, family bibles and long, long conversations with my family, especially Blanchard Garland, my great uncle, whom still lives in Mitchell County North Carolina. This is not a complete list so please be patient. I do have some photos that I will add at the end. I may not be able to answer all questions you may have, but I will share with all.
