GARRETT CEMETERY, SOUTHPORT, MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE
GARRETT, J. S., 30 Nov 1830 - 27 Feb 1892. Mason. Inscription: "J. S. GARRETT, BORN NOV. 30, 1830, DIED FEB 27, 1892. HE FOLLOWED VIRTUE AS HIS TRUEST GUIDE, LIVED AS A CHRISTIAN, AS A CHRISTIAN DIED." This is the most stable of the stones in the cemetery and the only one in no danger of falling. It is made of quality Granite stone, very durable but a bit hard to read since they inscribed it very shallow and the color variation causes the lettering to blend into the stone.
