I see that you're connected to Pittsburgh, PA. My Father grew up in Mt. Lebanon and my Grandfather worked for PPG Industries/Pittsburgh Plate Glass division. My Brother spent 5 years at Carnegie-Mellon University. One time I was out there visiting and I walked the whole length of Pittsburgh.

Anyways, I also see that you're the Profile Manager for many of the Garfield family Profiles, and are relatively closely related to Pres. Garfield through his mother. I'm a more distant cousin of yours, and of the Garfield's too. I grew up here in VT (and PA), and have childhood friends who are Pres. Garfield descendants, but don't see them here on wikitree (so I may create wikitree Profiles for them later, and add them), but I'm not sure which line to connect them to, as the Garfield descendant lines here are incomplete.

Maybe you can help me ?

The names I currently have are :

• John Milan Garfield, of Cleveland, OH

His Son is :

• Samuel Howe Garfield, of Greenwich, CT -Born 2-17-1917 -Died Feb. 1961 (in a car crash) in NY

-Married in 1950 to :

• Elizabeth "Tiz" Tough Schauffler -Born 10-6-1921 -Died 3-8-2017, in Townshend, VT (A good friend of my Mother)

Their 4 Children are :

• Elizabeth "Elsie" Garfield

• John Garfield, Died 1992 , in Australia

• Samuel B. Garfield, -born in 1957 ? Greenwich, CT Attended Philips-Exeter Academy, NH Currently Lives in Townshend, VT

• Robert S. Garfield, -Born in 1959 ? Greenwich, CT Attended Leland & Grey, VT Currently Lives in California
