James Monroe Garrett
You posted on Mr. Garrett's memorial that he was raised by his grandmother after his father and grandfather were killed in the Civil War. Do you know what happened to his mother Emeline Gray Garrett? Thanks.

Celia Cowan Garrett
Gary, I just read your "Offering" about Celia Cowan Garrett, on Garrion Garrett's grave. I added his middle name, George. Do you know where Celia is buried? I could add her as wife if I knew.
Many thanks for adding the additional information. That is the way we learn about families. I am not related and could transfer Garrison's grave to you (Friendship United Methodist Cemetery, Gardendale, AL)

RE: Wariner, King, Golden families
The 1870 cenus from Grayson Cty Tx shows William with Winnie, Mary 20, George F 19, James Alex 16 and Charles? 14.

Notes from Eddy King,
Mary, known by family as Mollie, was left to raise her children alone after the death of Ziba in 1893. Ziba was 48 when he died and Mollie only 43. The oldest child, Calvin, was 15 and the youngest about 4. My
father (George E. King) said that she lived with his family for as long as he could remember until her death in 1928.

One of his favorite stories as related to him by his grandmother was how she and her family came to Texas. She would have been around twelve or thirteen at the time. She said that both Union and confederate forces would ride throughout the Missouri countryside late at night, often pounding on doors and demanding entrance. They would forcibly take any able bodied man demanding that he immediately begin service in whichever military service they represented. She said that sometimes they would shoot old men fearing they might help opposing forces along with any younger men that refused enlistment, and that they would take even young boys. Her mother, Winifred Short Wariner, kept a scatter gun over their cabin door and would always be the one to answer a knock on the door and would not allow anyone to enter, but as the raids increased in frequency and more and more stories circulated about kidnappings and killings, the Wariners made a decision to leave their home in Bollinger county, Mo..
According to my father, Molly explained that the women did all the work, herding livestone, tending children, cooking, etc... The men and boys of the family walked all the way to Texas away from the roads and wagons, keeping to wooded areas and would come into camp only after it was dark just long enough to eat before returning to their hiding. The Wariner family settled in Grayson county, Texas.

Another thing my father remembered about Molly was that she had perfect teeth that she "brushed" with a chewed twig and snuff. He also remembered that she collected a civil war Union widow's pension of
$30.00 per month until her death in 1928.) At the time of Mollie's death my father was 16.

Above notes provided by Eddy D. King ( Jan 2000 )

I'm sorry but seem to have lost Eddy's email. Will see if my brother still has it.

Father of Mary Wariner correction
In the flowers you left for Mary Wariner King on the Hopewell cemetary memorial for Mary you said she was the daughter of William Wariner and Winnie Mae Short. She is actually the daughter of George Franklin Warriner and Winnie Mae Short. William Wariner was her brother-in-law.

Hello, I noticed that you left a message on her memorial about her being the family historian. Would you like for me to transfer this memorial to you if she is your family? She is not my family.

If you don't want me to transfer this memorial, does her parents have memorials? I could link her to them.
