Glen Elmer Garrett was born to James Logan Garrett and Flossie Dell Hatfield Garrett on 6 August 1922, he is the only one left out of 14 siblings. 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
