It was said that Frank Garrison could sit, dozing, on the front steps of his store and know more that was going on in town than any other 5 people combined. That he and [his brother] W. Y. kept their fingers on the pulse of the community and "ran a tight ship" cannot be denied. When younger clan members wanted to declare independence, they usually moved to other territory. (Descendants of Caleb Garrison, Sr., And His Wife Sarah Fleming, by J. G. Ross and Quillian Garrison, p. 162)

Son of James H. Garrison and Mary C. Young, both born Georgia. Married Dora May about 1896.
