     BIOGRAPHY: My grandfather William M Garriott (1836-1877) was a descendant of one of three Garriott brothers who came to America from France, date unknown. All three served in the Revolutionary War, and according to legend, shared sleeping quarters with General Lafayette. My grandfather was married to Ellender (Ellener) Jane Blakely (1831-1872), daughter of Samuel and Martha Black Blakely, all of whom came to the Kansas Territory from Indiana and settled on the north branch of the Verdigris River, northwest of present-day Madison, Madison County about 1854, though some authorities report 1857.
     Samuel Blakely (1806-1878) was my great grandfather. He had a son Daniel D Blakely (1845-1916) who married Mary Matilda Hensley (1851-1934), daughter of another Madison pioneer. Mary Matilda attended the log cabin District No 1 school, located on Blakely land, an area which Samuel Blakely later donated for the Blakely Cemetery site. The oldest daughter of Daniel D and Mary Matilda was Martha (Mattie) D Blakeley (b. 1871) who married Fred Pees, who had come to the area from Ohio at age 17. Thus the Blakely-Pees descendants in the Madison area are my cousins.
     My father Hayes Thomas Garriott was born December 6 1867 to William M, and Ellender Jane Blakely Garriott, and grew to manhood in Greenwood County. On November 3, 1892 he was married to Angeline (Angie) Allen (b. Sept 12, 1875), daughter of Charles Wesley Allen and Marian Ellen (Rumley) Allen. They and their children had come from Missouri to the Madison area (in) the bitterly cold winter of 1887 and settled on the old Arnett place west of Madison. Grandmother Allen caught cold, pneumonia developed, and she died a few days later. My mother was then only 10 years old. Two little sisters died within a few years and were among the first to be buried in the Andres Cemetery southwest of Madison.
     My parents had four sons and four daughters. When I was one year old, we moved to Blaine County, Oklahoma, where I attended elementary school and graduated from high schol in 1928. We then returned to Kansas, locating on a farm ten miles southwest of Madison. I married Irl Cragan. My father died on the farm June 14, 1932, and "Angie", my mother, in June 1946. Both are buried in Blakely Cemetery.
