    Garland

    The Garland family has had a significant roll in the Emmet MethodistChurch, and they are closely related to the McSwain family. HannahJosephine McSwain, an older sister of C. D. McSwain, married Robert R.Garland of White County, Arkansas, on September 10, 1865, at Falcon inColumbia County, Arkansas [Southwest Arkansas Genealogical Society,comp., Columbia County, Arkansas, Free Population Schedules, 1860(Magnolia, Arkansas: Southwest Arkansas Genealogical Society, n.d.),70].

    The growing Garland family was in Columbia County, Arkansas, in the1870 and 1880 censuses, but they were in Emmet in the 1900 censuswhere they had joined members of their extended family. They wereliving in the dwelling next to the C. D. McSwain home [Twelfth UnitedStates Manuscript Census, Emmet Town, Nevada County, Arkansas].  Theyhad come to Emmet earlier, possibly in the 1880s.  [Garland´s obituaryin the Nevada News of October 11, 1923, states that he had lived inEmmet more than forty years and was a lifelong member of the MethodistChurch.  The paper erroneously listed his initials as ``W. W.´´ whenthey should have been ``R. R.´´]

    In a deed from Lucious H. McSwain and his wife conveying a lot to theMethodist Church in 1892, R. R. Garland was named as one of thetrustees of the Emmet Church.[Nevada County Deed Record Book W, 548and 549.]  His son Thomas L. Garland married Junie Trotter.In 1910, T.L. Garland was living in the home of his uncle and step-father-in-lawC. D. McSwain and was later associated with him in business in theEmmet Mercantile.Garland served as president of the Emmet Mercantile.His brother J. M. Garland was the secretary and treasurer [ArkansasMethodist, May 14, 1936, p. 9.].

    John McSwain ``Mack´´ Garland married Elizabeth Christopher ofPrescott in November 1909.[Bruce J. Martin, comp., Nevada CountyArkansas Marriage Records, Jan. 1902-Sep 1910 (unpublished typescript,1992), 14. Southwest Arkansas Regional Archives, Washington,Arkansas.]  The Garland brothers, their children and other familymembers would remain in Emmet and be strongly associated with theEmmet Methodist Church that played such a large role in theirlives.Their families made numerous memorials to honor their memory.
