Annie Jane Garrett was born 22 Jul 1890, the only daughter of Joseph Daniel & Mary Annie (Bales) Garrett. She attended school through the sixth grade, but had to quit at that time to help her mother at home. She had been a good student and often told stories about helping the teacher to grade spelling papers of the other students.

She met her future husband Herbert Luquer while she was clerking in her father's grocery store in Jamestown. He had come in to buy some cigars, and she couldn't believe that this handsome Yankee was asking her to go out with him. He invited her to go to the movies, something considered quite daring (and possibly wicked) at the time. The movie was less than memorable, but on the trip home, the rented buggy lost a pin from one of the wheels and the wheel fell off. Annie had to hold the reins while Herb found a piece of wood that he could whittle down and make a new pin and get the wheel back on the buggy. As it was, they were a few minutes late getting in from their date, and Annie had to do some talking to convince her father to let her go out with Herb again.

Herbert and Annie were married 18 Aug 1915 and would go on to have six children, three sons and three daughters.
