     LANDINGS: Perrin's History claims that Evan was engaged in the mercantile business from 1849-1863 and local tradition claims his store was at Houston's Landing. Others claim that Evan Garriott's family's general merchandise store was at Wise's Landing on the Ohio River, which drew trade from the surrounding territories-- from Corn Creek a mile to the north-- to Middle Creek and it's valleys three miles to the south.35
     Evan's property extended from Patton's Creek to Barebone Creek, edging the Fix property, where a post office named Corn Creek was established in 1878 in the town of Wise's Landing. About halfway up Middle Creek Valley, most of which was part of the Garriott estate, Mr Lazarus McDonald Scott managed about 500 acres of the farm of Mrs Thomas (Edmonia Shirley) Garriott, a widow for over 30 years.35
     Holloway, or Garriott's Landing was, in the late 1900's, still part of a farm owned by Mrs Edmonia Garriott. The flood of 1937 destroyed this house on the riverbank, then owned by Herman Brown.35
    At Abbott's Landing, in Trimble County, was a two-story brick house owned by Mrs Mitty Abbott [Margaret Elizabeth?], daughter of Evan M Garriott. It is said he probably gave her this farm as he gave all his children a farm.35

     PUBLIC SERVICE: Evan Garriott was elected judge in Trimble Co, KY in 1854 and elected to the Kentucky State Legislature in 1861.36

     1898 BIOGRAPHY: "Evan M Garriott was born near Sulphur, in Trimble County, Kentucky, on 14 March 1816, the fourth of eight children born to Loving and Margaret Wilhoit Garriott. Loving was born in Kentucky, a son of Ambrose Garriott, one of the first settlers of Kentucky. Margaret Wilhoit was the daughter of Jesse Wilhoit, a native of Virginia, a Revolutionary veteran,"1 and an early settler of Kentucky, and Mildred Stone. Evan M has followed agricultural pursuits all his life, and owned upward of 400 acres of land. About 1840 he engaged in the merchantile business and which he continued until 1863." 35
