I’m not sure for whom the town of Garfield is named, but I don’t believe it was President Garfield, as he was a Union General. Likely, it was a local family name.
I can’t locate much information about Atkinson Candies, but considering the pecan tree in their logo I assume they make pecan-based candies. I’m sure locals will be able to tell me more.
