My earliest Garrett ancestor is Henry Garrett circa 1820-1870 per family legend however I have yet to find ANY documentation for him.
I find his wife Aritha and their children in the 1870 Florida Census for Orange County as the first known documentation of this family.
Their children are
Sarah Frances Garrett Driggers
Charney Hardeman Garrett (my great grandfaher)
Louis G Garrett
Mary Pency Garrett Barber Holden
Elizabeth Garrett Carlisle
Henry or possibly John Henry may have been from GA. His wife Aritha may have been a Tanner or a Turner prior to her marriage. Death certificates of their children are inconsistent in the birth location of the parents and their names.
