  • Notes 
    • The Franklin County News, 19 April 1911, Franklin County, Nebraska
      George Washington Garrett was born at Lexington, Kentucky, April 16,
      1818. He moved with his family to Schuyler Co., Illinois in 1836 where he
      lived until he came to Franklin Co, in 1877. In 1886 he moved to Franklin
      and resided here until his death which occurred April 14, 1911 at 6 a.m.
      The immediate cause of his death was hemorrhage of the stomach. He was
      converted at the age of twenty-six and united with the Christian Church. In
      1843 he was married to Delilah Luttrell, to which union nine children were
      born all of whom are living, as is also one adopted son Will. The wife died
      in Franklin December 23, 1887. There are left to mourn "Grandpa's" death
      two sisters and the ten children, five girls and five boys. Joan and Susan
      live in Illinois, Will and Morgan live in Colorado, John at McCook, Sarah,
      Martha, Peter, Thomas and Nancy in Franklin. Also thirty-six grandchildren
      and down to the fifth generation. The funeral was held on his
      93rd birthday at the M.E. Church, Rev. Gilpin conducting the service. He
      was buried in Greenwood cemetery under the auspices of the I.O.O.F. lodge
      of which he was probably the oldest member in the state. Not often is a
      community called to mourn with a family so many of whom are our
      friends and neighbors. But the mourning must end in consolation when we
      know the lost one has gone where "They'll never say, Goodbye".
