Christian TIVALL was born about 1730. He married Maria Barbara GAAR.

Maria Barbara GAAR [Parents] was born about 1735 in Virginia. She married Christian TIVALL.

The five hundred and ninety-first note in a series on the Germanna Colonies

There seems to be no escape from the conclusion that Andreas Gar had another
daughter, Maria Barbara, in Virginia who married Christian Tivall. I would
feel better if I could find more records pertaining to Christian Tivall
besides the references in "Warrants and Surveys." There are other references
in Joyner besides the one in the last note. In volume 1 (Augusta County),

"Lawrence Garr of Culpeper, 4 Jan 1749/50, 3 Feb 1750, on South Fork
Shannondoah. Chain carriers: Tivall & Zacharias Blancumbaker."

>From volume 3 (Culpeper County) of Joyner,

"Debold Christler, assignee of Christian Tivall; 12 May 1752 - 17 Mar
1752/3; 62 a. On brs. of Robinson River; adj. his own land, Michael Smith,
Andrew Gar. CC - Lawrence Gar & Henry Tivall."

Except for the name of Tivall, the names are readily recognizable and
logical. My attempts to learn more about the Tivalls, Christian and Henry,
have been failures. Searches through indices fail to show the name under
either "T" or "D." Perhaps readers have some information.

There was a name in these extracts that was a surprise though it was not
unreasonable. That was Peter Cree. Presumably, he was the son of Lawrence
Cree. Previously, we had known that Lawrence Cree had a daughter, Rebecca,
who received all of his property in 1758 and 1762. Peter must have been a
son who was one of the two tithes in the Lawrence Cree family in 1739, hence
at least 16 at that time. Eleven years later (see the previous note) he
would have been 27 years old. Probably he was married and the chances are
excellent that his wife was from within the Garr/Christler/Tivall complex.
Since his father, Lawrence Cree, did not leave property to any grandchildren
in 1758 or 1762, it might be assumed that Peter Cree had no heirs. But such
assumptions make bad genealogy.

The warrants and surveys given in Joyner usually specify the chain carriers.
The iron chains were heavy and the chain carriers needed to be strong. The
person for whom the survey was being made had to supply the chain carriers.
Very often, he chose sons, sons-in-law, or brothers-in-law for this job.
Theobald Crisler chose Lawrence Garr, his brother-in-law, and Peter Cree, of
an unknown relationship. The land was adjacent to Michael Blankenbaker, who,
like Crisler, married a daughter of Andreas Gar. Zachory Blankenbaker was
Michael's brother.

Lawrence Garr chose Tivall and Zacharias Blancumbaker as chain carriers.
Probably Tivall was a brother-in-law. Theobald Crisler chose Lawrence Garr
and Henry Tivall. Lawrence was Theobald's brother-in-law. Henry (and
Zacharias) were brothers of brothers-in-law. One wonders about Zacharias
Blankenbaker as his known marriage was when he was well into his thirties.
Did he have any earlier marriage? As you might judge, "Virginia Northern
Neck Warrants and Surveys" is fascinating reading.
