Glen Elmer Garrett was born to James Logan Garrett and Flossie Dell Hatfield Garrett on 6 August 1922, he left this world on 3 Sept 2018 in Dayton, Ohio. He was born in Cumberland County, Mayland, TN. While they lived in Mayland he had two brothers (Willie & Peter) pass away and they are buried at Mayland Cemetery. The family decided to move back to Overton County, Monroe TN when he was the age of two. His family owned 200 acres in Monroe TN. His oldest brother Robert Garrett died at birth and was buried on the 200-acre farm before moving to Mayland TN. My dad had a very small wagon he would pull around the whole farm. He loved watching the farm animals. When he was about 8 years old he helped his older brother Paul and his father build a new log cabin, they used the rocks from the old 2 room cabin fireplace and put in the new log cabin. He watched his Uncle Robert Hatfield (from California for a visit) put in a new door to the place that fit better and new stairs to the upstairs, so the children would have a better place to sleep. Boys in one bed and girls in another bed. He had three little sisters pass away after they moved to the farm. Such a sad time for all of them. Glen helped his father build fences and did odd jobs during this life on the farm. When he turned 16 he followed his older sister and brother to California. He said it was the most exciting and beautiful place he had ever seen. They moved in with their other sister who was married. Glen and Paul had their own twin beds, even with small lamps. He said he had never seen such modern furniture. Glen enlisted in the Army on 6 Mar 1943 for over two years. He was part of D-Day and one of 120 men heading to Omaha beach. After he came back home to California he married a nice lady, but it only lasted one year. Three years later he met my mother Corinne Louise Riber and they married in 1953. Glen and Corinne have three wonderful daughters and four grandchildren. Corinne passed away at age 90 in 2012 and we all can’t wait to see her again soon. Written by Martha Hall-5361

Through two different lines, Great-grandma Judy Ann Choate’s line goes back to her g-g-g-grandfather, Stephen Burton Garrett, 1733-1803. Stephen’s grandfather William came to America at the age of three with his father John. His grandfather, also John Garret returned to America, at about the same time, before 1684. John Garrett Sr. was a widower, and fell on hard times. He left England, and his son John, to start anew in America as an indentured servant to his brother in law, John Dunston, in 1631. After his indenture, he received land, and returned to get his son in England. While there he married Lady Mary Bible, a member of Royalty. Afterward he was referred to as Lord John Garrett. A few years later, after Mary died, Lord John Garrett, returned to America with his children. Lord Garrett’s father changed the name from Gerrad to Garrett. His grandfather was knighted and known as Sir John Gerrad. Sir John was elected Mayor of London, in 1601. Sir John’s father was Sir William Gerrad, and was knighted in 1555. He was also elected Mayor of London in 1555. Sir William’s g-g-grandfather was Lord William Gerrad and married Joan Heiress de Bryn, adding another title to the family name. Sir William’s g-g-grandfather Lord William Gerrad married Emma Heiress De Kinsley, gaining another title to the family. Lord William Gerrad de Kinsley’s father was William Fitzwilliam Fitzgerald, born 1140-1174. In the old language, Fitz means son of. William Fitzwilliam Fitzgerald’s father was William Fitzerald. He was born before 1100 in Carew Castle, Pembrokeshire, Wales and died 1173 in Carrucastle in County Pembroke, England. He inherited Carew Castle and is the ancestor of the family Carew. William Fitzgerald’s father was Gerald Fitzwalter de Windsor. Through an arranged marriage by King Henry I, he wed Nesta Rhys, daughter of the Prince of Wales in about 1089. He was appointed by King Henry I to be Constable of Pembroke Castle; in 1092 he held off a Welsh attack; and commanded troops against native Welsh in SW Wales in 1095. Lord Gerald’s father was Walter FITZ OTHO Castellan De Windsor. He was born about 1037 in Stanwell, Staines, Middlesex, England and died in 1100. He was Castellan of Windsor and Warden of the Forests of Berkshire. He was one of the military caste that was essential in consolidating the position of William the Conqueror after 1066. He may have been born in England, but it is not known whether he was in England at the time of the landing, or whether he joined William in Normandy, and took part in the Battle of Hastings, 1066. Walter was a knight in the King's private retinue, and, when in 1070 William began the building of Windsor Castle, Walter was put in charge of its defense, and later became the first Constable of Windsor. Under the Norman kings, as with the kings of France, the Constable was the principal officer of the royal establishment, and was responsible for the defense of the establishment, by the knights stationed there. It was this position that conferred the name 'Windsor' upon his sons. Windsor was built by William to control the middle reaches of the River Thames, and together with other castles, each a day's march apart, to keep open the route from London to the south coast, and thence to Normandy. Since Walter was a young man in 1070, to have been given such responsibility, shows the great respect felt for him by William. Soon after 1070, Walter also had the important post of Warden of the King's forests in Berkshire. Although generally associated with hunting, the main recreation of the Royal household, the position was a military one, since the forests were subject to regular patrolling, as a precaution against enemies of the King. They were also regarded as the main source of provender for armies on the move, or those stationed at strategic castles. Walter Fitz Other must have been very important to William the Conqueror since he granted Walter 22 manors in England. Walter was still holding these at the time of the Domesday Survey in 1086. Walter’s father was Otho (Duke of Tuscany), born about 1006. He was a member of the Florentine family, the Gherardini. The “Otho” comes from his father’s given name of Ottorus which is sometimes spelled as Othoer. He was Duke of Tuscany between 1006 and 1100. He came to the court of King Edward the Confessor in about 1056, ten years before the Norman Conquest of England, He passed into Normandy, and in 1057 crossed into England where he became a favorite with Edward the Confessor, and obtained extensive estates from the monarch. Otho’s father was Baron Ottorus Gherardo Gherardini, born in 978. Ottorus’ father was Lord Otterus, born about 934. He was Baron of Gherardini and Lord in Tuscany. Lord Otterus’ father was Lord Mathias Gherardini, born about 900. Mathias’ father was Lord Cosimo Gherardini, born about 870. He was the 1st Great Duke of Florence.
