HISTORY OF CHAPTER NAME

This chapter takes its name from the son of Captain William and Mary Naughty Garrard, James Garrard. James Garrard was born on 14 January 1749 in Stafford County, Virginia. During the American Revolution he served as a colonel in the Continental Army. In 1872, he moved to Kentucky, and settled near Paris on the Stoner River. He was instrumental in the establishment of churches in the area, and served as the first minister of the Cooper's Run Baptist Church before entering politics.

From Kentucky, he served as as member of the Virginia House of Delegates. He served as a member to the 1785, 1787 and 1788 conventions, and was a member of the Kentucky Constitutional Convention of 1792.

He was elected governor of Kentucky in 1796, and again in 1800. After leaving office, he returned to his family farm in Bourbon County. He died at his home on January 19, 1822.
