16. The Garlocks of New York.
Once Johann Peter and Johann Christian Gerlach came to America, it took them a while to get settled. New York State was a wild place in the early 1700's. Our ancestors helped tame the frontier. After the Revolution, many of the Garlocks found a home in Canajoharie, New York. In fact, both branches of our Garlock family did. It became a Garlock stronghold for many years. This story brings us full circle and ends with Philip and Elizabeth Garlock and their son Walter, who married Maranda and had a son Charles William Garlock, who we know so much about already from earlier tales.
