Biography* John Edward, son of Benjamin Franklin and Ann Jane (McFeeters) Garrett, was born in Buckingham county, Virginia. December 30. 1866. When six vears of age he came to Greenbrier county, West Virginia, with his parents, and there was educated in the public schools of the locality and period. He came to Fayette county in 1889 and located at Thurmond Mountain, which place represented his home until 1899, when he settled in Mount Hope. For several years he was foreman of the Thurmond Coal Company and at the age of twenty-six years he was elected justice of the peace of Fayette county, serving in that capacity for the ensuing eight years. At the age of thirty years he started a general store at Macdonald and conducted the same with splendid success for three years. He is now president of the Warner Real Estate Company, president of the Paintsville Development Company, Paintsville, West Virginia, and is a heavy stockholder in the Electric Light & Power Company of Beckley, West Virginia. He is the most extensive dealer in real estate at Mount Hope and in addition to his local land interests is a stockholder in the Harrah Land & Coal Company, of Charleston, which owns thirteen thousand acres of land in Buchanan county, Virginia. His political convictions are in accord with the principles promulgated by the Republican party and since 1902 he has been the efficient incumbent of the office of mayor of Mount Hope. Mr. Garrett manifests a deep and sincere interest in educational matters and is a member of the Mount Hope board of education. In the time-honored Masonic order he has passed through the circle of the York Rite branch, being a Knight Templar. He is a Presbyterian in his religious faith and is a liberal contributor to various charitable organizations. No man commands a higher place in the confidence and esteem of his fellow citizens than does he.

On January 22, 1889. Mr. Garrett married Minnie E. Burdette, of Gatewood. Thomas Burdette, father of Mrs. Garrett, died in 1896, aged fifty-eight years; he was a farmer and school teacher. His wife, Marinda Burdette, survives him and makes her home at Oak Hill; she is sixty years of age. Mr. and Mrs. Garrett have five children: Patrick H., Dennis A., John B., Annie J. and Paul.6
