  2. Obituary - MORROW COUNTY INDEPENDENT, Cardington, Ohio, 17 December 1925
    Julia Smith Garbison passed away December 10, 1925 at Westerville, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Grace Bensley. She was the daughter of Geo B. and Mary E. Smith and was born in Harrison County, Ohio,, in 1850. [This conflicts with her tombstone inscription] The family soon after moved to Cardington, where she grew to womanhood and where she attended old "Number Six" school. Several still living in the vicinity of Cardington were her schoolmates there.
    Julia was the seventh of nine children, two of whom still survive, Prof. Frank B. Smith of Cincinnati, and Emma Stewart of Los Angeles, California.
    Shortly after the close of the Civil War she was united in marriage with John B. Garbison, who had served his country as a soldier from 1861 to 1865 [sic]. Of the children, five are still living, Fred D. and J. Clyde Garbison, both of Cleveland; Mrs. Mildred Emma Miller and Hal H. Garbison of Winfield, Kansas, and Mrs. Grace Bensley of Westerville.
    For more than eighteen years Mrs. Garbison had not walked a step but her sons and daughters have been her devoted attendants, she having made her home with them. Through all these years of suffering and invalidism she never complained. Many who met her, and those who knew her best, marveled at her wonderful fortitude and bravery during her long affliction. Her sweet optimism and cheerfulness were unusual and as the minister said, she was one of the sweetest Christian women her ever knew.
    At an early age she joined the church and was always a faithful, consistent Christian and an inspiration to others. She will be greatly missed by her many friends and acquaintances.
    The funeral was at Westerville Sunday afternoon at 1 o'clock and the remains were brought to Cardington for burial Monday afternoon.
