He was appointed deputy to Garrett over Garrett's objections.

 

Yes, I agree.

Garrett´s objections were overpowered, and the wish of the ones that appointed

"HE" overuled (prevailed upon any likely objections).

 

To my mind, were situations like the ones given in the following examples.  Taken from Webster´s dictionary on line (entry: OVER)

 

Still, the word "over" could be swaped expressions like "prevailed upon Garret´s objections...", for example.

But it is an educated  guess of mine, it needs confirmation.

Hope it helps.

Tips from 1870 Usage: On, Over, Upon. "Mary called upon her friend." Say, "called on her friend." "The Senator prevailed over his friends to support his bill." Say, "prevailed upon his friends." "The candidate prevailed over his enemies."
Usage: Over, More than. "There were not over thirty persons present." Over is incorrect; above has some sanction; but more than, is the best, and should be used. Source: Slips of Speech.

George Washington 1789-1797 The alternate domination of one faction     over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism.
