Family Group Information
Marriage
Note: There is no record of the wife or wives of John Nicholas Garst other than his will of 1801 which named his wife, Mary, who may or may not have been the mother of his children.
Note: See the Note entitled "Who was Marie Statthalter?" for the story of how this name was made up, in 1923, when a Garst descendant applied for membership in the DAR. The spelling Strathalter (sic), which appears in this file, is some compiler's misspelling of Statthalter. Statthalter is a German word which literally means "Placeholder," which is just another way of saying "Unknown."
