      Notes for Garrison Gibson Medlock:
      Our Medlock name is believed from family legend to have begun with a family or clan living near the River Medlock, Lancashire, England. Our roots begin with Garrison Gibson Medlock. He told his children before he died that his parents were not married and that he was raised by his grandparents The John Medlocks.
      Garrison and Rebecca Medlock left their home, with 4 of their 14 children, near Anderson SC about 1848 and settled in Clayton County, GA ( Henry County ?) between Jonesboro and McDonough. He and three sons-in-law served in the Confederate War. His unit followed the Union Army after it had passed through Henry County to the coast. he later served as a guard at the Andersonville Military Prison. He was a deacon in the Baptist church near Lovejoy, Ga and is said to have been very loyal. Garrison is said to have three loves in his life his family, his church, and his farming.
      Garrison Gibson Medlock purchased land in Albertville, Al after the Civil War but he never lived there. He would travel to Albertville once a year to collect rent. His children Molly and John Reeder also bought land in that area. John R and his brother James Garrison later moved to Albertville.
      Garrison G. Medlock was a farmer. He planted cotton, corn, peas, wheat, and oats. He planted all of the food for his live stock and all the vegetables for his family. He raised hogs, cows, sheep, etc. He would shear the sheep, and his wife would wash, dye and spin the wool into thread making the family clothes and bed linen.
