Thank you for the great information! I am hopeful to locate an obit for my one Garrett ancestor, Henry A. Garrett. I have a death date of October 1, 1901. I know he was an attorney and lived according to the 1870-1900 census in St. Joseph, Tensas Co., LA. His second wife Martha Elizabeth Claiborne is to have died November 19, 1911. I think after the death of her husband Henry Garrett she removed to New Orleans, LA with her step daughter Mary VanSanten and family. I'm not so sure if an obit would of ran in the St. Joseph paper. I do appreciate your kind offer and if by chance you visit the library and have time to look I would certainly appreciate your effort.
Thanks so much!
