I am looking for info on my grgrtgrandpa,Joseph Garrison born 1863 in Washington County, IN.His mother's name was Elizabeth May Chastain, from what grandma said. She also said that Jospeh's father was killed in Sherman's March to Sea and buried at Vicksburg.According to the census reports little Joseph did live with his mother, listed as Elizabeth May and family members of the May family.I'm not sure where Chastain came in at...is it her maiden name or a married name later.I also believe that little Joseph's father's name was also Joseph (he is the one who is buried at Vicksburg).I did find a Joseph who died 1863, and little Joseph never did meet his father, he was born later that year.
Grandma also said that he had inherited quite a bit of money but lost most of it to needy relatives??
Any info on birth, death, marriage records on either Joseph's or Eliabeth would be appreciated.I am realted via Joseph's son, Fred L. Garrison.
