I know some of the middle initials don't match up right, but keep in mind the newspapers were not always accurate in the details.
Now the bad news. The Library chargers 50 cents per copy page, plus postage. We're talking about 5 pages of cemetery listings, and 22 obituaries (if they are all your family). I also have one page of early Mason marriages in Macon Co. Probably there are Garlock marriages also, but I have not yet looked. I didn't really know what all you were interested in.
I'll wait to hear from you.
