    • "About 1896 he moved, with his parents, by covered wagon to Noble, Oklahoma Territory." Aunt Frances said that "Papa rode a pony from Missouri to Oklahoma." At first they thought they would live in Moore but there was an influenza or something going around at the time so they rode on to Norman. They continued on because Norman was too low and prone to flooding. They finally settled in Noble, Oklahoma.
      Elizabeth's handwritten account: "Mr. & Mrs. F.A. Garee, CEG and Elda May Garee came to Noble by covered wagon, buggy and horse. CEG on a pony driving a herd of work horses and mules in late spring 1896. (They sold the work stock along the way - such was scarse.) C.E.G. went back by rail and accompanied a box car load of furniture which he completed the "filling" by bringing apples from MO the fall of '96. Of course, he made a nice profit on the apples for fruit was scarcer here (only a little more than 8 yrs after this part of Oklahoma opened by run). The F. A. Garee's bought a home on the SE intersection of Walnut and 2nd and both died in the home.'

    Notes 
    • "Ed was a wizard in mathematics as shown by the fact that without having any training in engineering, he and his father built a long suspension bridge across the Canadian River, an amazing feat!" "He has introduced several new varieties of useful ornamental plants, the outstanding one being the "Gareei Cypress", which is very popular in Oklahoma, Arkansas and southern Missouri." "Ed was drafted by 'Uncle Sam' in the extensive rehabilitation program for GI's after World War II. His course was in Propagation and Nursery Practices, under the auspices of Oklahoma City High School. He had 20 - 25 returned soldiers enrolled, several of whom have become leading nurserymen in Oklahoma and other states. Ed was elected to Honorary Membership by the Oklahoma Horticultural Society in 1951, under the auspices of Oklahoma A & M, now Oklahoma State University." [1]
