Emily Garrard: 1895-1903

Mary Robert Lawton Garrard and Col. William Garrard had six children. Four of them died in childhood. The last little Garrard that did not live to adulthood was Emily Garrard, 1895-1903.


In the 1900 census shown above, there is also the sister of Mary Robert Lawton Garrard living in the home. She is Emily Lawton, and she later married Thomas Screven, and they had a son, Thomas. Thomas the elder died, and Emily remarries to her brother-in-law William Garrard. Family tradition says that her son Thomas took his own life at age 16.

Sleep well, Garrard people. We’re thinking of you tonight.
