"ZACHARIAH A. GARRISON
Zachariah A. Garrison, farmer, sec. 36; p. O. pearl; was born in Posey Co., Ind., March 29, 1815, and is the son of Elijah and Sally (Allen) Garrison, natives of Kentucky, and a lineal descendant of Daniel Boone [Boone's parents]. The subject of this sketch came to this county with his parents in Oct., 1826. His father entered a large tract of land near Milton, which he lost by unsuccessful speculations. He then moved upon the river bottom, where he died in 1840. His devoted wife lived until 1846, when she too was called to join the settlements of a better home.
The subject of this sketch was married in 1834, to Miss Louisiana, daughter of Thomas Davis, who died in 1839, leaving one child, Mary L., who resides in Oregon. He again married in 1842 [22 Apr 1841], Miss Cynthia Waters, who died in 1852 . Of this marriage one child was born, Hannah J., wife of Orsen (sic) Gilbert. His present wife, Lydia Wilson, is a native of Ohio.
Mr. G. was engaged in running log rafts down the river as early as 1835, and afterwards followed the river as pilot until 1852, when he built a hotel, where he was engaged for 11 years.
In 1861 he enlisted as Captain of Co. E., I. V. I., and two months afterward was appointed recruiting officer. In this capacity he served until 1864, when he moved to Oregon and spent some years. On his return he settled on his present place."
