Garey, Thomas Andrew (07 July 1830–20 August 1909), citriculturist and land developer, was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, the son of Samuel Garey, a physician, and Margaret Wringer.

By age twenty Garey was living in Independence, Missouri, at which time he left with a group of travelers bound for California.

The couple had seven children who survived infancy....
