Notes:
From A Short Record and Autobiography of the Garrison Family of North Carolina:
Thomas Garrison, the third son of Thomas and Comfort Garrison, married a Miss Anderson of Virginia.  He emigrated from Buncombe county, North Carolina to Kentucky, near the Yellowbank on the Ohio river in a very early day. He then emigrated to Illinois, Hamilton county, about 1822.  Thomas Garrison was engaged in the farming business in Southern Illinois as long as he lived.  His wife died in 1857 or 1858.  Thomas Garrison was Captain of a Company of Malitia in the Blackhawk Wars in Illinois and served with distinction to the close of the same.  Politically he belonged to the Jacksonian School of Democracy.  He and his amiable wife had four daughters and one son born to them: Evalin, Elizabeth, Catherine, Mary and Thomas. Evelin and Elizabeth married Biekerstaffs, they were brothers. Catherine married J. Lasiter.  Mary married a man by the name of Miller.  Thomas is married and has two children.  Captain Thomas Garrison died about the year 1866. He left one son to perpetuate his name and his Democracy in the future.
