     1922 OBITUARY: Jacob Lewis Garriott, son of Rev AV Garriott and wife, was born 7 Jul 1850. He died on Christmas morning, 1922, at the age of 72 years. His boyhood was spent in a home that was devoted to the services of God, and he continued to serve that same God he learned to love when but a child. Before the age of twenty he became a member of the United Brethern church and remained an active and faithful member until he was called to his reward.
     He was married to Julia Callum on 1 Apr 1900. Two children were born to this union, a daughter Lena May, who died at the age of three years and Asbury Grant, who survives. He also leaves one brother James Garriott.
     For the last forty years he has been a merchant in this community and his honorable and upright character has silently and beautifully influenced those whom he daily met. He was patient, kind and considerate, and when trying times came and more of us would have failed, we found him always charitable, slow to anger, and anxious to forgive. [__]

Trio Confesses in the Beating of (Asbury Grant) Jake Garriott.
     The men who attacked and beat 49 year old Jake Garriott, of Harristown last February 27, were arrested here in Salem Saturday by Sheriff Orville Hamilton and Patrolman John Baker. They are Jerry Shocke, 19, Salem, Ralph Pennington, 23, who lives about 6 miles northwest of Salem, and Paul Brough, 39 who lived in the vicinity of Monroe schoolhouse, north of Salem. Pennington and Shocke were caught Saturday, and Brough was arrested Monday.

On the night of February 27, 1953, Mr Garriott was attacked and beaten by Schoke and Pennington when he stepped out the rear of his building to lock the back door. Shocke and Pennington admitted they attacked Garriott. Brough was waiting in a car parked nearby. Shocke hit Garriott with a coke bottle and Pennington used a billy club, according to Sheriff Hamilton. At the time of the incident, the motive was reported as robbery as Garriott was in possession of his money sack. However, no money was taken.
