More about Garrett

A Swearingen cousin named John Bennett wrote a fictional children's book about a character named Barnaby Lee; the book has Garrett and Barbara (his wife) as significant characters. This book was published in 1902 and made into a silent movie in 1917. The book can be found on Google Books here and can be purchased here. IMDB has a bit of information about the movie here.
