HON. JAMES B. GARNETT was born on July 28, 1845, near Pembroke, Christian County; he is the youngest of five children born to Eldred and Frances A. (Pendleton) Garnett.  The father was born in Abermarle County, Va., in 1813, and died on his farm in Christian County, Ky., in 1870.  The mother was born in 1810 in Orange County, Va., and is now living in Christian County.  Our subject has three brothers in Christian County, two engaged in merchandising at Pembroke, the other in farming and teaching school.  His sister is the wife of Rev. R.W. Morehead, of Princeton, Ky.  In 1866 Mr. Garnett commenced the study of law at the Lebanon Law School, and graduated at this college of learning in the class of 1868.  Immediately after he came to Cadiz and located here, and since that time has been actively engaged in the practice of his profession.  In 1870 he was elected County Attorney and served four years.  During part of this time he was also Common School Commissioner for two years.  In August, 1875, he was elected State Senator from the Third Senatorial District, which was composed of the counties of Trigg, Calloway, Lyon and Livingston.  In 1880 he was elected Commonwealth's Attorney for the Second Judicial District, comprising the counties of Muhlenburg, Christian, Hopkins, Trigg, Caldwell and Lyon, for the term of six years; this office he still honorably fills.  Mr. Garnett was a delegate to the National Democratic Convention at Baltimore in 1872, and at St. Louis in 1876; he was married in October, 1877, to Miss Virginia Hewell, of Tuscaloosa, Ala.  This lady died on November 30, 1878.
