Notes:
From A Short Record and Autobiography of the Garrison Family of North Carolina:
Absolom Garrison, the second child of Thomas Garrison (and Comfort Garrison)  was born in the State of Virginia, & emigrated to North Carolina with his parents.  He married Miss Lucy Huff, she was of Irish descent.  He lived on his father's old homestead a few years after his father died. He then sold to his mother his interest in the lands and emigrated to Illinois about 1810 and settled in White county in southern Illinois. He was a farmer and stock raiser.  In 1852 he divided his property among his children. He gave his farm to his youngest child, Edward Garrison, and he was to maintain his father and mother the remainder of their days.   Absolom Garrison was on a visit to his daughter Mahala Caroline Fuller, in 1853 and while he was there he sickened and died at her home in the western part of the State of Illinois, about 150 miles from his home. His widow, Lucy Huff Garrison, continued to live with Edward, their son, until his death, and then she continued to live with his widow for several years after until her death (ca 1866). Absolom Garrison and Lucy Huff Garrison, his wife, had three sons and six daughters born to them.
