QUERY: Alonzo GARRETT b Nov 1880 in IN married a Zula Locke on Oct 5, 1904 in Elkhart Co, IN. They had a son Robert Garrett in 1905. They divorced and she married a Frank Rigsby in Berrien Co, MI on Oct 12, 1923. After the divorce, I have no information about Alonzo until 1912 when his father, THOMAS JEFFERSON GARRETT of Wabash Co, IN died and the Non-Resident Notification printed in the Wabash Newspaper said Alonzo was in Detroit MI. I have information that the son Robert worked for Miles Labs and when he died he was buried in Elkhart IN. Any information no matter how trivial about any of these people will be appreciated.
