Treasure Chest Thursday- Garland Family Bible

As a child I would always pull out my Grandparent's family bible from a book shelf and look at all the great pictures in it. I would always stop at the family record section and read through the entries of births, marriages, and baptisms. Amazed at the history those pages contained. Just a few years ago I was honored to be presented the same bible as a Christmas gift from my mother and aunt. It is an heirloom I will always treasure.

Do you have any Garland's in or around Knoxville, Tennessee?

Thank you.

Hi Russ,

I don't have any direct ancestors in my Garland line in or around Knoxville but the Garlands did split into the Northern and Southern branches so I'm sure I have some relatives in the south. This link might be some help.
