Bio Photo I am interested in researching JETT/GARRISON families mainly in Iowa/Tennessee/Kentucky/Oklahoma/Missouri/Arkansas/Texas and Virginia and GORVIN/ORGAN/MURPHY families


"Dear Ancestor"

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Efton Clifford Garrison
My Paternal Grandmother was Efton Clifford's sister. From what my Grandmother told me, Clifford was working at a store in Snyder when there was a disturbance by a black man outside. He went out on the street to help defuse the situation and was shot dead by the man. I posted the picture from his funeral. I have not been able to find a newspaper account of the event, but am still looking. I have lots of information on the Garrisons if I can help you in any way.

Gordon, Freddie & Ida
I sent a couple of incorrect relationship SACs to you (I put the child's # in the spouse slot, oops), and just now sent the corrections. Sorry for the error! The new SACs will fix it.

Charles Knight
Thanks for all of your hard work contributing to

I am writing to request transfer to me of the page for Charles Knight (1797-1870); Findagrave #99696598.

Charles Knight was my g-g-g-grandfather. He was a Massachusetts-educated "druggest" who moved to Ohio County, KY. He had two daughters. In the 1840s, the family moved to Potosi, WI. They moved back to KY at the outbreak of the Civil War. He died in Ohio County, KY (thus the grave you have recorded.) I have just now added a pic of him to your page.

Thanks in advance for your consideration to transfer. My screen name is Johnny Drury; my Findagrave Member number is 47696793.

Samuel Bailey Correction
Thanks for all the work you're doing. I just wanted to bring to your attention a correction for Samuel Bailey buried in Piney Grove Cemetery, Midtown, Roane County, Tennessee. His mother was Sarah F Isham Bailey (2 Mar 1845 - 7 Jan 1914). Samuel's middle initial is "L".
