According to cousin Theron Ragsdale, Benson and Henrietta lived in the large house, overlooking the creek, previously owned by Enoch C. Garrison and Orpha Clementine Meaders. Benson loved to ride an old Model T around the area, and was beloved by all, including the many in the Truth Seekers Bible Class at Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church.
From George Turk's Josiah Anderson and Related Families, page 10: Children of Henrietta Anderson and Benson Garrison are 1. Ruth Estelle Anderson 1897, 2. Enoch Anderson Garrison 1899, 3. Myrtle Anne Garrison 1902, 4. Otho Bernard Garrison 1905, 5. Dorothy Bell Garrison 1913.
The pictures of Henrietta and Benson posted were taken on their wedding day in 1893, and were preserved by my grandmother Myrtle Anne Garrison Ayers and her sister Aunt Dorothy Garrison Dockery, and then by my mother Dorothy Latranquil "Dot" Ayers Martin.
