    3. I've "rescued" an old arrest warrant and court documents related to allegations that John G. GARRISON had pushed a man from the Railroad Station platform in an abusive manner causing injury to that man, Charles H. GILLESPIE. The incident occurred in May 1915 and the warrant was issued in June 1915. For lack of evidence the case was dismissed on 10 Jun 1915. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding John and his family: John Gregg GARRISON was b. 12 Sept 1874 in Minersville, PA to parents Louis or Lewis GARRISON (1853-1948) and Ella or Ellen Garner MEALING or PAYNE (b. 1852). John G. was one of 9 children born to this couple including, Elmer Ellsworth; John Gregg; Horace Bender; Ida M.; Nellie I.; Lewis; Albert Griswald; Lewis; Warren W. or A. or Merkle GARRISON; and Nettie GARRISON, all born between 1873 and 1894. John married twice, his first wife was Ida Mae FRAHN (1878-1947) with whom he had 3 children, Marion E. GARRISON (b. 1902); John D. GARRISON (born and died in 1904); and Paul Richard GARRISON (1905-1972). His second wife was Kathryn Elizabeth WRIGHT (1883-1967) and they had 6 children including, Paul E.; John Wright; Robert S.; Sarah Jane; Ellen Irene; and Kathryn Elizabeth GARRISON. John died 26 May 1920 in Williamsport, PA and is buried in the Wildwood Cemetery in Williamsport, PA. John's sister Ida M. GARRISON STETLER (1886-1941) and his daughter Sarah GARRISON CASE (1915-1998) are both buried in the same cemetery where John Gregg GARRISON is buried as well.

If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley
