  • Notes 
    • Piecing together Garrett Rue's life, he appears to have been a troubled individual. He got off to a reasonable start, the son of a farmer in western Ohio. HIs father died when he was in his mid-twenties, and he was the executor of the estate, which appeared to leave very little to the descendants. His marriage to Sarah occurred only 5 months before the birth of his first daughter, Annie. Following his move to Kansas in the early 1860's, he appeared to be on a better track, serving as one of the first state legislators there. But he appears to have gotten into a number of legal disputes in Johnson County, mainly financial, and later moved to Neodosha. Once he and the family made it west to Hollister in late 1880s, more problems seemed to follow. His wife filed claims of assault against Garrett, and essentially divorced him. He ultimately hanged himself in 1890.
