Rev. S. C. Garlick, pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Junius, was born in Rose, Wayne County, N.Y., November 20, 1846, being the only son of William and Caroline Clary Garlick. His early education was obtained in the district school and a term each in Red Creek Academy and Tulley Seminary, at Fulton.

For several years thereafter he was mainly engaged in teaching and farming. Having previously prepared himself by general reading and home study, in the fall of 1886 he entered the junior class of Auburn Theological Seminary, graduating therefrom in May,1889. Three months before completing his course at Auburn he was called to supply the Presbyterian Church at Ludlowville, Tompkins county. During the two years in which he was located there the church membership was largely increased. In the spring of 1891, he resigned his charge to take work in Iowa. Just as he was abut to settle he was stricken with nervous prostration and compelled to relinquish all work and return to New York State. In July of the same year, having partially recovered, he engaged to supply the Presbyterian Church, Dresden, N.Y., remaining there two years, from there removing to his present field at Junius. Since his coming to Junius, members have been received into the church at nearly every common service - thirty-four having been added during the two and one-half years of his pastorate. Mr. Garlick is characterized by fervor and enthusiasm in the pulpit, by industry both in study and pastoral work, and by a genial personality. He is a member of the Presbytery of Lyons.
