     ALBERT'S BIOGRAPHY: Albert was a farmhand or farmer most of his life, very poor and deeply religious. He was unsuccessful in several attempts to purchase a farm. He moved east of Rensselaer to Pleasant Ridge [SR 114 & 150W] in Jasper Co, IN and also farmed north of Rensselaer. He died of liver cancer. Albert's son, Perry Elmer Garriott, [according to Perry's wife Iva Blankenship] recalled, as a child, helping his father cut down trees in the forests in Jasper County to create tillable farmland. The trees, trunks, limbs, branches and all were sunk into the muck until it was possible for the land to support weight. They then farmed the land. An 1894 Atlas of Indiana shows several marshy areas in Jasper County. [website author]
