William Harrison "Red" Garvin
Birth: Dec. 24, 1812, USA
Death: Nov. 2, 1890
Carter County
Kentucky, USA

The parents of William Harrison "Red" Garvin were Johnston Garvin and Hannah Rice.

Their children included: Elizabeth, William Wallace, James F., Eliza F., Franklin "Frank," and Rebecca "Becky" Garvin.

A newspaper story in the "Sandy Valley Enquirer"
published: Thursday, December 10, 1942 states:

"The first settlers of Soldier were Harrison Garvin, father of Rebecca Patton (widow of the late J. D. Patton) and Jeremiah Powers Richards (father of the late John William Richards), and the Underwoods on Dry Branch Road, ancestors of Velva Underwood, Mrs. Ina Vincent and W. A.Gilbert. These pioneers were substantial farmers and livestock dealers." [.....]
Still standing as a monument to the achievements of these early settlers is the old Garvin homestead in which Mrs. Nora Shay, granddaughter of Harrison Garvin, now lives."

William Harrison "Red" Garvin was beloved of his family and highly esteemed in the community.

May he rest in peace.
