When I published my first story "How the West Was Won by the Garlock Family", I briefly introduced the oldest daughter of Rev. Charles Garlock and his first wife Agnes. Her name was Vera Agnes Garlock and she was born in 1882. When my mother, Charlotte (Garlock) Jamison commented on the piece, she said she knew nothing about Vera. Vera was her aunt! Her family never talked about Vera, at least that she could remember. Of course, Vera died in 1926 which is 6 years before Charlotte was born. Nevertheless, I thought it odd that Vera was such a mystery. So I decided to look into her story.
There wasn't all that much to discover about Vera, but what I could find I put together in my second piece.
