Re: Garrett Family in Alabama
We had communicated earlier about Garrett genealogy. We have since had to change our server. We are researching the line of Charles Franklin Garrett, son of John Garrett and Jane White. We were glad to find your info. on Elisha, as we had no info. on him. Charles Franklin was born 2-27-1879, birthplace on death certifcate listed as Alabama. He died3-1-55 in Lindale, Ga. He was married twice. Once to Bethie Bell Hawkins (Cherokee, Al.) and then to Rosa Lee Kinney. Around 1915-20 moved to Lindale to work as a carder at the Pepperrell mill. I have had contact with a couple other researchers.Have a little info. onWill Garrett,who lived at Piedmont, Al. and Mattie Virginia Garrett Tidwell, lived and buried in Cartersville,Ga. It seems like several people are familiar with this family, but no one knows where John and Jane lived or died. Absolutely any info. you might have as to where they were from would be great. I have access to some records...just need more data. Charles, or Charlie Frank had told my father-in-law that he had a very similiar story to Elisha's. He evidently "hopped a train" to come to either Ga. or Ala. I wonder if John Garrett was a strict disciplinarian, as that seems to be the case in latter generations. Very strict, and very devout primitive baptists, or baptists. At any rate, would love to exchange any info. I appreciate it.
