William Claud Garrison
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 3, 1899
DeKalb County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Oct. 21, 1969
Branch County
Michigan, USA

Willaim Claud was born in 1899 to Robert Mansfield Garrison and Ruth Angeline Maynard. He was raised on a farm and learned to work hard.
My mother, Dorsa Garrison Law, dearly loved her brother Claud. When he went away to WWI and left a shoe print in the snow, she covered it with a box and went to see it every day until the snow melted.
William Claud Garrison married Beatrice Fairfax Hart 14 Dec 1919 in Baltimore, Maryland. She was an accomplished and educated woman and set a good example for my mother, who loved her very much. She was,in fact, beloved by my mother and it saddened the whole family when she died at 29 years of age (January 1925) leaving a grieving husband and a little son, William Hart Garrison.
Claud remarried 18 Sept 1925 to Dimples Serene Denny and one year later they had a daughter, Ada Ruth.
Claud died of a heart attack while tending to his farm duties in 1969. He was and is a sweet, kind soul!
