The family of LB Christian Garver ( -1798) is presented by Lois Garver (1987), Melchora Garver (1942), and E.E. Garver (1903). See also Bell (1898), J.T. Garver (1897) and Keller (1889). There is considerable disagreement among these sources. Barbara N. Sharp, of 3223 W. 18th Ave., Eugene, OR 97402, is currently revising and preparing a detailed genealogy of this family. The compilation below is based on Sharp's work, who should be consulted for additional details.

Keller (1889) listed him as a son of Christian Garver, but perhaps confused him with [Gc] Leonard Gerber (b. ca. 1745, Berks Co.; d. May 6, 1786 in Mecklenburg Co., NC, wp Sept. 1786, NC).
