Happy New Year & Best Wishes To All:

I have every reason to believe that William E. Garrett was my great great
grandfather, but I need better documentation than I have. My great Grandfather,
Benjamin F Garrett listed on his death certificate as born Oct. 19, 1870 in
Springtown, Arkansas, Benton County. It also list his parents as Elisha Garrett &
Caroline Daniels & both having been from Georgia. William Elisha Garrett built the
first cabin in Big Spring, Arkansas, Benton County. He later named it Springtown,
Arkansas. In the Union County Georgia Census, for 1850 or the 1860 census for Towns Co., Georgia he is listed as Elisha Garrett. I find no record of him ever being married to Caroline Daniels in Arkansas, but believe that he was married to a Asley C. Daniels [Caroline] in Union County, Georgia & that she probably died in child birth with my great granddad or from complications shortly after, because William "Elisha" Garrett
marries Mary Ellen Culberson April 06, 1871 in Benton County, Arkansas. this was
only a few months after Benjamin's birth & at the time William "Elisha" would have
been about 39 years old.

The above information on William "Elisha" is only a strong belief at this time. I need
documentation to support this theory, or shoot it down.

Any & all information & or suggestions on William or Benjamin would very much appreciated.

Thank You
