Notes for PAUL LEROY (OSBORN) GARRETT:

Paul LeRoy (Osborn) Garrett was born to Paul Pierce Osborn and Edna Florence Davenport on August 09, 1925, in Wakeeney, Trego County, Kansas.  Paul and Edna were not married.  Edna's sister, Bertha Mae and her husband, Edward Daniel Garrett took Paul LeRoy to care for until Edna was married.  Paul Pierce at the time was married to Goldie Davenport, which was another sister of Edna.  When Paul P. found out he had a son, he went back to Kansas.  Paul Pierce and Edna Davenport were married in 1927.  After that, Edna ask for her son back and the Garretts refused.  So, my father Paul LeRoy was raise as a Garrett but was never legally adopted as a Garrett.

 Paul LeRoy and Martha lost their eldest son, Paul Randolph, to cancer on January 13, 1995.  From there they both seemed to go downhill in their health.  As all parents feel, Paul LeRoy stated that a parent is supposed to go before their children. 

Paul LeRoy, after his wife's death moved to Lincoln, Placer County, California with his youngest daughter, Wynona (Wendy) Gayle (Garrett) Maxey.  He lived with her for approximately three (3) weeks until his death.  Paul LeRoy and his wife, Martha Belle, died within forty-six (46) days of each other.
