1. ??? GARNER was born (date unknown).
Although a Henry Garner and wife who was Nancy, perhaps Nancy Poole, are often seen as the parents of these Garners, it was certainly not the same Henry Garner of Hardin Co TN who applied for his Revolutionary pension. That Henry was born in Rowan Co, North Carolina, did live for a time in Kentucky, but a court case in 1851 concerning the sale of his land for the benefit of his nine heirs, proves that he had an different family. However, a power of attorney in the Pension file says that his wife was Nancy who died in 1819.
The Pension, R3919, was Rejected. Henry Garner deposed on 16 Dec 1834, Hardin Co TN. He was then aged about 75 [or born 1759]. He was born in Rowan Co, NC in 1760 as he believes. He served in the REvolution in 1780 and was hired by 16 men to serve. He entered as a volunteer under Capt. Peter Hetrick & Col Haynes. They marched to Charleston, then held by the British, and marched back to Salisbury, then to the state of Virginia where he was discharged. He served not less than 18 months. He was a drafted soldier in 1781, Rowan Co NC under Capt Frederick Smith & Col. Hayes - they were marched to Deep River & joined Gen. John Butler and then to within 20 miles of Wilmington, NC. They went to Cross Creek, NC and he was discharged. He feels certain he served not less than 6 months. He has documentary evidence nor knows of no person whose Testimony he can procure. He resided in Rowan Co two years after the revolution, then moved to Virginia where he lived about 8 years, then to Kentucky for about three months, then to East Tennessee for three years; then back to Kentucky where he lived for 24 years before moving to Hardin Co TN where he now lives. He signed with his mark. Charles B. Neilson and Bowan Davy, his neighbors, testified to his age and veracity.
There is a power of attorney in the Pension File, dated 1 Nov 1852. John F. Garner age 64, is one of the heirs of Henry Garner, a Revolutionary soldier of North Carolina who died 17 Oct 1835. His mother, Nancy Garner, died in 1819. To the best of his information they were married in 1783 in North Carolina. They resided in Tennessee at their deaths. Garner authorizes F. E. Hassler of Washington DC, his attorney to obtain any pension or land. Signed John F. Garner for all the heirs of Henry Garner.

John F. Garner, Robert McMahan, Sally Brown, Leah Eades, Harriet Garner, dau of Peggy Garner dec'd
David Garner, Gabriel D. Garner, Polly Decker, formerly Nancy Garner, dau of Peggy Garner, dec'd. Henry G. Garner in his own right and as guardian of Joshua & James Garner.
Petition to sell land. The parties to the petition are the children & representation of Henry Garner, dec'd. The tract contains only 55 acres and there are nine heirs to divide it. It was ordered the land be sold to the highest bidder.
I have grouped these siblings shown here together partly on the bases of the following:
Moses Trader Shepherd's life story compiled by Bliss Brimley in the
Moses Trader Shepherd Family Organization Newletter, June 1978:
"...Some of Nancy's brothers, Job, Henry, James, and Enoch Garner also
were early settlers in Delaware Co., Ind, Job Garner having been appointed
guardian of the minor children of Nancy Adamson..."
I have added Vincent who was not named in the above, but was certainly present near Enoch in Wayne Co IN and Enoch named his youngest son Vincent. Vincent named sons Henry and Enoch. Vincent did not settle in Delaware Co.
There also seem to have been sisters.
There is a deed, 23 Oct 1822, in Wayne Co KY, from a Henry Garner and his wife Betsey of Hardin Co TN, to Vincent Garner of Wayne Co KY - the land was in Wayne Co. The parcel contained 20 acres and was on both sides of Beaver Creek, bounded Wm. Smith's line, and was sold for $50. The deed was acknowledged the same day by Henry Garner and wife Elizabeth relinquished her dower rights. Now Vincent did have a brother Henry, but his wife was named Eunice - unless Henry had an unidentified earlier marriage.
The above Revolutionary soldier Henry Garner is in the 1830 census in Hardin Co - a Hardin Co history shows he was there about 1820.
However there was also a Henry Garner in Wayne Co KY in 1830:
1830 Census. Wayne Co KY
Henry Garner: 2m 5-10, 2m 10-15, 1m 30-40 [more of an age to be a brother to Vincent!] 3f under 5, 1f 5-10,1f 10-15, 1f 15-20, 1f 40-50
David Garner: 1m age 60-70, 1f age 60-70
Still another Henry Garner can be found in Henry Co IN, 1830, along with Job Garner.
By 1830, Vincent was in Wayne Co IN, living near Enoch Garner.
??? GARNER had the following children:
|Henry GARNER1 was born about 1790 in North Carolina. He died on 5 January 1858 at the age of 68 in Howard County, Indiana. |
Named as a brother of Nancy, I have no good confirmation.

Henry Garner, 1m 5-10, 1m 10-15, 1m 50-60. 1f 5-10, 1f 40-50

|Susannah GARNER1 was born on 12 September 1789 in North Carolina. She died on 4 April 1867 at the age of 77 in Indiana. |
Susannah married Daniel Jones.
Online databases give her death as in Indiana in 1867.
Possibly this is Susannah & Daniel. If Susannah belongs in this family, she didn't use the traditional Garner given names for her children.

|James GARNER was born about 1800 in North Carolina. He died on 10 August 1840 at the age of 40. |
Named as a brother of Nancy, I have no confirmation.
James is said to have married Nancy Crum, 30 Oct 1828. I could find no James Garner of approximate age married to a Nancy in 1850.
There were two James Garners in Delaware Co IN in 1840:
James Garner: 1m age 20-30. 1f age 20-30. On a page with Henry and Vincent.
James Garner: 1m under 5, 1m 5-10, 1m 30-40. 2f under 5, 1f 5-10, 1f 10-15, 1f 20-30. He was on this page with Jehue Garner: 1m under 5, 1m 10-15 1m 15-20, 2m 20-30, 1m 40-50. 1f under 5, 2f 5-10, 1f 10-15, 1f 30-40.
|Lydia GARNER was born in December 1805 in Ohio. She died on 25 August 1860 at the age of 54 in Howard County, Indiana. |
Lydia married Isaac Stout, 9 Feb 1828, in Wayne Co IN. As is the case with two of Vincent Garner's older children, Lydia seems to have been born in Ohio
