Note: In my research of JAMES B.GARMON, the Surname Garmon is recorded as GARMON / GARMAN.
The Deed between George W. Garman and James B. Garman at this location online. Metcalfe Co., Ky. Land Records, Book 1, pages 5, 6 & 7: is evidence of James B. Garmon as such. Much time has been spent in searching for the parents of James B. Garmon, by a number of Garmon / Garman researchers. With little if any clues as to who his parents are.
However there is some new thought as to the possibility of him being listed with the family of Samuel and Elizabeth Garmon as J. B. McKinney. In the 1850 Census of Adair County, KY. Compiled by Mrs. Randy H. Flowers and Randy C. Watson 1986. On page 25 No. 317, J. B. McKinney (m) 7 KY. with Samíl Garmon family.
