  • Notes 
    • Her marriage record in Mecklenburg County reads, "Elias J. Garrison,
      age 30 of Mecklenburg County, son of J. A. & R. Garrison of South
      Carolina (father-living, mother-dead) married to Ruth E. Knox, age 30
      of Mecklenburg County, daughter of S. B. & Ann Knox of Mecklenburg.
      (father-dead, mother-living) married on 19 April 1876 at Mrs. Ann Knox
      in Steele Creek by John Douglas, min. Witnesses were: W. A. Wilson, H.
      A. Stowe and Thomas J. Simeril of Mecklenburg County."

      This was a second marriage for Elias Garrison. He married 1st to
      Hannah Catherine Youngblood, daughter of Richard Calvin Youngblood and
      Nancy Hannah Lessley on December 26, 1867. There was one child, Hanna
      D. Garrison, d. October 3, 1874 at the age of 1 year, 7 months and 12
      days. Hannah Catherine died February 28, 1874. It is thought by this
      writer, that she died in childbirth and the baby was born dead. (Taken
      from this writer's research on the Youngblood family).
