Notes:
From A Short Record and Autobiography of the Garrison Family of North Carolina:

James, the fourth son of Thomas and Comfort, married a Miss Anderson of Virginia, sister of his brother Thomas's wife.  They emigrated from Buncombe County, North Carolina to Kentucky about the same time as his brother Thomas and was engaged in horse trade to the South.  About the third drove he took south, he sold his entire drove to a man in South Carolina, on time.  He soon found, however, that the man's wife he had sold the drove to held all the property in her name and he lost the whole drove of horses and did not return home for five years.  He finally returned to Kentucky and paid for his horses and sent to Virginia for his wife, who had given him up for dead and had returned to her father in Virginia. Thomas had removed to Illinois in his absence.  While at a dinner party shortly after his wife had returned from Virginia, he spoke to his wife, calling her a different name than her own Christian name.  After dinner was over, his brother Thomas took him aside and called to his mind the incident of the name and asked him to give an explanation of the whole matter.  James said he had been swindled out of his horses by a woman and he had made it back by a woman and that was all the explanation he gave.  He then took his family to Arkansas and lived in obscurity the rest of his life.  The simple fact of the case is:  He married a rich widow in the South, took enough of her estate in his hands, left her, paid his debt, returned to Kentucky, and took his wife, Catharine, and went to the wilds of Arkansas.
