Served in the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War.

"Journal of the House of Burgesses of Virginia, 1761, 1765--there is record of Garrett as a witness at a Court of Inquiry where Mr. Thomas Rutherford, a member of the House of Burgesses from Hampshire County, had preferred charges against a Col. Stephens, head of the militia of Virginia, claiming that Stephens had failed to give proper assistance to a Col. Boquet. Boquet, a French soldier of fortune, said he could put a stop to the Indian trouble in Hampshire County if given the necessary assistance. Col. Stephens was acquitted by the Court, although many doubts remained unsatisfied. Garrett and his neighbors (three of the Kuykendall men) were among the witnesses. For traveling fifty miles and testifying, Garrett received a payment of 225 pounds of tobacco. At that time, the monetary system was based upon tobacco instead of gold. It was merely credit, not actually 225 pounds of tobacco."
