Colorado County Probate Records, Final Record Book F, pp. 47-61; Colorado County Tax Rolls, 1860; Eighth Census of the United States (1860) Schedule 2, Colorado County, Texas; Colorado County Deed Records, Book H, p. 101, Book J, p. 786, Book K, pp. 33, 34; Colorado County Bond and Mortgage Records, Book E, p. 428. Though Garrett did not finally complete purchase of Ware's plantation until February 21, 1863 (see Colorado County Deed Records, Book L, p. 353), it is clear from the tax rolls that he had acquired title to it earlier. Probably Garrett's purchase of the property was contingent upon him making a series of payments, which were only completed in 1863, at which time the deed was written. Rhodes came to the county in 1858, that year entering into a partnership with Angus McNeill and his family to cultivate McNeill's plantation (see Colorado County Bond and Mortgage Records, Book E, p. 171).
