     1889 OBITUARY: (Nicholas Garriott) Died, at his residence in Brown township, of congestion of the bowels, Nicholas Garriott, aged 77 years, 11 months, and 25 days.
     Nicholas Garriott was born August 8,1809, in Bourbon county, Kentucky, near Cynthiana. He moved with his parents of Fayette county, Indiana, about 1820, near Connersville. He was married to Catherine Collins about the year 1830, and moved to Hancock county, near Milner Corner, 1833. His wife died in 1863 or 1864. Since her death he has lived with his children, most of the time with his youngest daughter. He was one of the pioneers of the county, and lived to see Hancock change from a dense forrest into fine farming country.
      He leaves three sons, two daughters, and several grandchildren to mourn his death, which was very unexpected, being sick only about two days. He was buried August 4th in the Hays cemetery by the side of his wife and near a large evergreen that he had planted with own hands. His religious faith was with the Christian Church, but I do not know if he ever obeyed the gospel. He was an exemplary citizen and a staunch Demograt.
     Henry C Garriott.
