  • Notes 
    • Husband of Sarah Elizabeth Garrison

      T. S. Garrison was a native of Georgia. At the age of 31 he moved to Texas and settled in Shelby County, where he lived until his death. He was in business in Timpson most of the time "and did more for that town and that part of Shelby county than probably any other man."

      Mr. Garrison assisted in the construction of the HE&WT railroad and also the line that connects with Longview. He twice ran for State Treasurer. He was a member of the Timpson Methodist Church and served as superintendent of the Sunday school for 20 years. In 1910 he was bank president.

      His obituary also states that "Capt. Garrison was a staunch Democrat and a lifelong prohibitionist and never lost an opportunity to do his part in the abolition of the liquor traffic and it was a happy day for him when the nation went dry."

      Mr. Garrison seemed in good health until shortly before his death, at age 83. His wife Sarah Elizabeth had died on November 18, 1918. Survivors included 2 daughters: Mrs. C. E. Sanford and Mrs. A. C. Vinson of Timpson; 1 son: John T. Garrison of Houston; 3 sisters: Mrs. Carter of Timpson, Mrs. Daniels of Cushing, and Mrs. Johnson of Timpson.
