Notes:
From A Short Record and Autobiography of the Garrison Family of North Carolina:
Sarah Garrison, the ninth and youngest child of Thomas and Comfort Garrison, his wife, married a Mr. West of Buncombe county, North Carolina. Mr. West was a saddler by trade and carried on his business in the town of Asheville, North Carolina. They had no children, (but he had an apprentice boy learning the trade, by the name of James M. Alexander, who became a very wealthy dry goods merchant of North Carolina and was an extensive farmer and slave owner.) Mr. West volunteered in the United States service in the late war with the England and served under General Jackson and was in the famous Battle of New Orleans, but died with fever in the City of New Orleans, his widow then administered on his estate, wound up his business, then returned to her mother who was also a widow and made her home with her, but shortly after she returned to her mother she went with her brother James Garrison to Kentucky to visit her brothers James and Thomas -- Garrisons then living in Kentucky, also to visit her brother Absolom Garrison then living in White county, Illinois. She spent two years in Kentucky and Illinois. She then returned home with her brother, James  Garrison, when he made his last trip with horses to the South. About the year of 1817 she married Mr. Joshua Stansberry of Wilke county North Carolina. He was a main and hydrant builder; or manufacturer and they had seven children born to them as the fruit of their union - four sons and three daughters.  They also raised a son of Mr. Job Massa who lost his wife the day her child was born.
