I'm not sure that we have the same family, but when you said that yours were hard to find too...!
James T. Garrigus b. 12-21-1853 d. 10-08-1920 (I think he is buried in Stone County, Mo, Yocum Cemetery, but not sure if that is him) m. 1st wife: don't know anything about her. m. 2nd wife: Hattie Beatrice (b. 03-07-1864, d. 05-11-1936, buried in Gardner Cemetery, Wheatland, Hickory County, Missouri.)
Children of James and 1st Wife:
Jessie: (b. 10-09-1885, d. 06-02-1930) William: (b. 10-09-1883, d. 04-01-1931)
Matthias: (b. 09-25-????, d. 04-10-1948.I think that he was bornin 1880, but haven't found any concrete proof.)
Children of James and Hattie:
Charles Alonzo: (b. 03-19-1894, d. 12-26-1950) Tildia:(b. 05-17-1897, d. ??????) Albert:(b. 06-21-1904, d. 07-1975 in California) Noah Edward:(b. 02-20-1891, d. 04-15-1971)
Noah, or Edd, as he preferred to be called, was my great grandfather. Please let me know if the dates match up with yours because I haven't been able to find out squat on this side of the family.
