Hit By A Train - The Obituary of Dr. J. J. Garrett

From the August 24, 1933, edition of the Jonesboro Daily Tribune:

 Dr. John Joseph Garrett, my great-grandfather, who was born on August 4, 1868, was a 2nd generation Arkansian.  His father, George Washington Garrett, was born in Arkansas in 1843; his mother was W. Jane (probably nee Hankins).  He married Sophia Jeannette Swinyer (daughter of David and Mary Jane (Snay) Swinyer), a native of New York, in Jonesboro, Arkansas, on December 29, 1897.
