     BIOGRAPHY: Marion (Garriott) attended grades 1-6 in a 2 room school house at Pumpkin Center, near Little York, Indiana. Then grades 7-12 at Little York, graduating in 1945. While in school he enjoyed drama, all sports as well as his regular classes.
     He started working electrical construction in 1946. He was drafted into the Army in September of 1950. He had basic and advanced training at Camp Carson near Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was then sent to a Communications School at Ft Benning, Georgia. He was discharged in September of 1952. While at Camp Carson he met a friend's sister, Jean, from Indiana. They married in 1953.
     After his discharge he returned to electrical construction. He worked in Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Texas and California for 15 different contractors in 41 years and was never fired from a job. He worked on buildings, distribution and transmission systems, substations and power houses as well as on the after effects of tornadoes and ice storms. His last 10 years were at the Army Ammunition Plant at Charlestown, Indiana. He retired in 1987.
     He and his wife Jean purchased a house trailer and moved from one construction site to another. In 1958 they had the opportunity to buy 500 acres in Gibson Township, in Washington County, Indiana, about 4 miles from Little York. Aunt Inez Garriott said it was the dumbest thing she'd ever heard of. My father, Paul, said, "Now sis, you don't know that for sure." My father was good about things like that. Later we had the chance to buy 74.5 adjoining acres which gave us road frontage. We really enjoy our hills, valleys, woods, and the peace and quiet.
     We moved our trailer to the country in 1965 and later had a house built in 1971. We have had cows, horses, burros, goats, hogs, a lamb, rabbits, cats and dogs. Still have some animals.
     Marion wanted the following included with his autobiography:
     "I thank God for our ancestors, even those before Grandfather Frank, and Grandmother Mary. I am also thankful for our father Paul and mother Jessie, my precious brothers and sisters, my wife, our three daughters and six grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews. They all are great. Also for our many wonderful cousins scattered all over North America and where ever." [Douglas Dale Sr Garriott]

Dorothy (wife of Marion Lee "Jake" Garriott) attended grades 1-10 in Mulberry, Indiana and 11 and 12th in Northfield, Minnesota, graduating in 1946. She attended Carlton College in Northfield in 1950 with a BA in Sociology. She played a flute in High School and College band and in a couple of town's summer bands.
     She attended Columbia University School of Occupational Therapy in New York, New York, graduating as an OTR in 1952. She attended Penland School of Handicrafts in Penland, North Carolina for 9 weeks in the summer of 1952. She worked for a while as an Occupational Therapist at Sheppard-Pratt Hospital near Towson, Maryland. [Douglas Dale Sr Garriott]

Mr Rutherford enjoyed exceptionally good educational advantages; he attended the Central Normal College at Danville, Indiana, besides several other normal schools.
