Garrison, Margret L. 14 Feb 1819 - 12 Feb 1900

Family members have reported that Margret Garrison was the daughter of James
and Elizabeth Eaton. She was briefly married to James Garrison and it is
uncertain if he left or died. Their daughter Tennessee J. (T.J.) Garrison,
and Margaret were living with James and Eliz. in the 1860 census. It was
reported by the late James "Ernest" Reasonover that he read the name of
his relative Elijah Warford on a fieldstone. Elijah is the son-in-law of
James and Eliz. by marriage to their daughter Cynthia. One of the fieldstone
did have engraving but it was so dim I could not confirm it was Elijah Warford.
