  • Notes 
    • From an article published in the 1911 General History of Shelby County, Missouri: "Owner of one of the splendid farms of Taylor township and held in high esteem in the community that has ever represented his home, Mr. Garner is one of the prominent and successful agriculturists and stock-growers of Taylor township and is a member of one of the well known and highly honored families of the county.
      "Mr. Garner's life began on March 4, 1866 on the old homestead farm in Taylor township. He is a son of Charles Julius and Mary (Glahn) Garner, natives of Germany, where Mr. Garner's grandparents and other ancestors were born and lived, contributing in their several generations to the progress of that great empire....
      "Mr. George B. Garner is indebted to the local schools for his early educational training, referring with facetious satisfaction to the fact that he was a student of 'Grub College' (Shelby county rural school district No. 12). He continued to attend school at intervals until he was seventeen years of age, and in the meantime he contributed materially to the work of the home farm, thus learning the lessons of practical and consecutive industry, and gaining experience that has been of inestimable value to him in his independent career. He continued to be associated in the work and management of the home farm until 1890, when he married, after which he rented a farm near the village of Leonard, where he remained one year, at the expiration of which he purchased forty acres of his present farm, in section 22, Taylor township, where the best evidence of his energy, ability and success is that afforded by his ownership at the present time of a well improved landed estate of 255 acres, all available for cultivation. He erected the present substantial buildings on the place, and the other improvements are of the best type, so that he has every reason to view with satisfaction the progress he has made and the independent position to which he has attained through his own well directed endeavors. He is a staunch Republican in his political allegiance, taking a loyal interest in public affairs of a local order and having served both as clerk and director of the school board of his district. He gives a liberal support to the work of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Evans Chapel, of which Mrs. Garner is a zealous member.
      "On February 13, 1890, Mr. Garner was united in marriage to Miss May S. Boring, who was born in Green County, Illinois, and reared in this county, being a daughter of George W. and Augusta Boring. The mother died in 1908 and the father lives in Clarence, Missouri. Mr. and Mrs. Garner became the parents of eight children: Florence Merle, Alfred E., Eva May, George Delbert, Charles E., Clara Hazel, and Lola Grace. One died in infancy."
      From the Shelby County History book of 1972: "Sons, writing of parents and grandparents, tend to emphasize the strengths of ancestry. Julius Garner was reputed to be a man of unimpeachable honesty; G. B. Garner was known for his industry, integrity and rugged justice... The family experienced the day of independent farm life when only salt, flour and seasoning was acquired with 'cash money'.... The farm boasted both grandfather's and father's orchards -- apples, plums, peaches, grapes, gooseberries and strawberries. Forty-four stands of bees and a flock of 500 chickens with the 1200 quarts of canned fruits and vegetables set a table that denied panics and depressions.
      "We, at times, entered the field with four 4-horse teams, farmed the land and rented more. Neighbors said, 'Garner had so much livestock that the gates wouldn't close'. All contributed and participated in the returns. You didn't ask to use the favorite buggy team but whether father had prior plans for their use. Sunday afternoon was a time for the country boys to congregate at a farm and ride mules or steers, or perhaps stage some horseback races. Saturday night was our night out and company often came home with us. Mother said she never knew how many or who would appear for Sunday morning breakfast. The farm and family institution was the baronage of an active and good life."
