Reuben R. Garrett was born in Greene County, MO., March 27, 1872 (wrong). He was married to Miss Margaret Appleby there Dec. 1, 1864. She with four sons and one daughter survive him and one son Johnny, died Sept. 28, 1888. The surviving children are Lon, who resides near Springfield, Mrs. Mollie Dickson, of Van Buren, Ark., George, of Cassidy, Christian County, MO., Loyd, of McDonald county, MO., and Harry, the youngest son, who has always made his home with his parents.
The family lived in Greene county until the Fall of 1896, when they came to Taney county purchasing a home three miles north of Taneyville, where he resided until his death which occurred April 15, 1909.
Mr. Garrett united with the Missionary Baptist church in 1893 and was known as an active Christian worker and was never more at home than when doing his Master’s will. He was a veteran of the civil war and a member of J. J. Bruton Post No. 577 G.A.R. at Bradleyville, which had charge of the funeral service. He had a great many friends as a result of his long residence here. The interment was at the Helphrey cemetery, the funeral sermon being preached by Rev. Grant Johnson, who in accordance with the last wish of the deceased read the 15th chapter of 1st Corinthians and took for his text 1 Cor. 15:55, “Oh death, where thy sting; and oh grave, where is thy victory?”
During his illness Mr. Garrett was very patient, never complaining about his suffering, but to the last praising his Savior and manifesting that joy of one prepared to sleep in the arms of Jesus. “Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil; for though art with me, thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.” He has now gone to his reward and we have only his memory, but should we all follow the example set by him there would be less of ____ and wickedness in the world and more of joy and happiness.
In the death of brother Garrett ______________ the neighborhood but lost a good citizen, the church an influential and devoted Christian member, the old soldiers a beloved comrade, his children a kind and induigent father, and his wife a loving and devoted husband. May the remembrance of his pure life be ever kept green in our memory. A.H.W
