Notes:    
From A Short Record and Autobiography of the Garrison Family of North Carolina:
James Wilburn Garrison, the seventh child of Captain William Garrison, was in the mercantile business near or at the Hot Springs in North Carolina in 1837.  He sold out there in 1837 and came to Lewis County, Missouri. Shortly after he sold he stopped a short time with his brother-in-law, Mr. David Merrell, and then went to Dubuque in the then territory of Iowa and was engaged in the lead mining, business until 1853.  He married while there. In 1853 he left Dubuque, Iowa and went to Mt. Vernon, Missouri. He left there in a few years and went to Texas, but did not stay there but one or two years.  He then came back to the lead mines in Newton County, Missouri.  He lost his wife about fifteen years since.  He then made his home with Mrs. Rant, a widowed daughter, in the town of Galena, Kansas and died on the 26th day of October 1892. He had five children, two sons and three daughters.  Catherine, his eldest, married a Mr. Rant.  Her post office is Galena, Kansas. Miss Ranie Garrison married a Mr. Holman, his address is Granby, Missouri.   Miss Maria G. Garrison married Rev. L. W. Pearce, a M.E. South Minister, and they had one child, Walter, who is published a weekly paper in Otterville, Missouri in connection with Mr. Holman, one of his cousins.  Rev. Mr. Pearce, was a soldier in the Confederate Army during the war,   Thomas Garrison lived near Galena, Kansas. John Garrison lived in the Indian Territory.  Mr. James Wilburn Garrison was a sympathizer with the Confederate cause in the South and was very much harassed by the Federal authorities both in person and property.  He lost all his property, the toil of years, which it thought by those best acquainted with him to have shortened his days on earth very much.
