Enoch W. Garrison was born in Posey county, Ind., Dec. 22, 1818. He is a son of Elijah Garrison, who landed his family in this county long before railroads were thought of and when the Indians and wild animals roamed at large, and the wolves made the night hideous by their constant howling. He located in Montezuma tp. Enoch W. hunted coons where Milton now stands, and on one occasion a panther chased their dogs from the hunting grounds. He was deprived of educational advantages, as there were no schools in the first settlement of this county. In a few years, however, came the days of subscription schools and teachers with ox gads in their hands; he attended school for a short time in a log cabin where Milton now stands.

He has been married three times, and is the father of 8 children, of whom 4 are living; William, Lewis A., Hannah L. and Enoch W. Mr. G. is engaged in farming and stock-raising, and resides on sec. 2, this tp.; has been a hunter all his life; hunting and trapping in winter and farming during the summer."
