Garrison, William F
     William F. Garrison was born during 1841 in York County, South Carolina. His parents
were Arthur and Mariah Terissa Bentley Garison of York County, South Carolina.
     William was the third son of Arthur and Mariah. He enlisted in the Confederate army
and served them until July of 1865. Four months later on November 14, he married Nancy
Hannah Elvira Poovey. Nancy was the daughter of David and Christian Lucretia McCallum
Poovey. David was born November 15, 1815 in Burke County, North Carolina and Lucretia was
born February 15, 1815 at Perthshire Scotland.
     William, and his new bride, Nancy lived in York County, South Carolina until the
winter of 1869. They had three children during that time: Mary Catherine born during
1866; James Pickney born during 1868, and Augustus Garrison born August 14, 1869. Their
other children were Emma J. born 1871; John D. born 1872; William D. born 1874; Cordelia
Estelle born 1875; Nancy Garrison born during 1878, and Lois A. which was born at Liberty
Grove during 1878.
     The Garrison family owned large tracts of land and had lived in South Carolina for
more than a hundred years, but the spoils of war caused William's parents to head
southwest. It was the winter of 1869 when William, accompanied by his parents and brother
Peter Prince, brother Zebus Arthur, along with his sister Sarah Clarinda Neely and her
husband David Jackson traveled into Bradley County, Arkansas and settled near the small
town of Warren.
     William's younger brother, John, died in 1864 at the age of twenty-nine after
contracting an intestinal infection while serving in the 17th Regiment, Company E, around
Charleston Harbor.
     William moved from Arkansas to Liberty Grove, Texas in 1878. Sometime during his
service for the Confederacy, William caught severe pneumonia and had to be hospitalized.
He never fully recovered and died on October 6, 1882 at the age of forty-one. Nancy never
remarried.
     William and Nancy were both united with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at
Pleasant Valley.
