Notes for Abraham Garst Sr.
Surname also sometimes spelled Gerst and Gharst.
William Tell Garst's book "Our Garst Family in America" has a death date of 3 Sept 1838 for Abraham on page 25 where the family of John Nicholas Garst I is listed. The primary listing for the family of Abraham Sr. is on page 225, with a death date of 10 Jan 1835. May Frost's "Garst, Sherfey, Graybill genealogies & Peffley supplement" (to her earlier Peffley genealogy) has his date and place of death as 18 Jan 1835, South Bend, Indiana, and the 1951 A.G. Schull pedigree has 1835 (no day & month) for the death date, in South Bend, Indiana. The 3 Sep 1838 date is probably for a different Abraham Garst.
