THE SQUARE DEALER, SHATTUCK, OKLAHOMA, THURSDAY, JANUARY 27, 1910
B. C. Garver
The Rev. B. C. Garver was born near Harper's Ferry, Va., Jan 1st, 1829. His parents moved to Ohio while he was young and there he spent the greater part of his life. On Jan. 1st, 1856 he married Ruth Susanna Rohrer, at Springfield, Ohio, where they continued to live until in 1885. They then moved to Kansas. To this union there were born eleven children, eight boys and three girls, nine of which are now living. He moved to Oklahoma in 1906 where he has since lived nearly all the time on his farm seven miles north of Shattuck, but since his son-in-law, O. J. McDowell moved to town he as made his home with him in Shattuck, where he died Jan 24, 1910.
Bro. Garver has been a devoted Christian and member of the M. E. church for over fifty years and the most of that time he has held a local preachers licence, and has been a active worker in the religious field, always ready to help and encourage those who were in need. In no way did he encourage wrong and he made many friends by living so strenuous a Christian live. In the late revival mettings held in the M. E. church, his zeal for the work was made very manifest.
No one doubts his Christian live, and it was a surprise to many when the notice of his death was brought to their homes. His body was taken to Springfield, Ohio, where it will be interred.
