Note: The Brodhead Family Association's Volume I of "The Brodhead Family" (p. 72) records a 1st marriage circa 1755 to Cornelia Schoonhoven, daughter of Henricus Schoonhoven and Johanna Decker. They record the 2nd marriage (to Jane Davis) as taking place on 11 Aug 1759 (Kingston Reformed Dutch Church Hoes #1350).

Founding owner of Wheat Plains Farm, purchased after the War. Garret worked as a farmer and schoolteacher. The Farm remained in the Brodhead family well into the 1900s, leaving the family only once during that time. It is now within the Delaware Gap Recreational Area (owned and presumably maintained by the US Government).
