I have always had my doubts about JOEL being the father of DAVID ISAAC m NANCY TENNISON. I have 4 copies from different sources that give the identical report for JOEL with the exception of one that says JOEL was born in Edinburgh Scotland. A copy of JOEL's pension papers varify he was born in Cumberland Co N J on the date above. As I was typing this information in my doubts are now stronger. I have wondered WHY 2 sons named DAVID ? But it never came to my attention till now that the Children by m # 1 were all born after the death of their mother. The dates of death and birth for all above are the same in 4 different sources.
DAVID ISAAC GARRISON according to the census and a biographical sketch for JOSEPH HAMILTON GARRISON a son of DAVID ISAAC;
DAVID ISAAC was born in Ohio
Question, who are the parents of DAVID ISAAC GARRISON m NANCY TENNISON lived in Spencer then Warrick Counties in Indiana ?
In everything I have found, census records, church records,toombstone he is listed as ISSAC GARRISON
Question # 2, Does anyone know or have anything showing if his name is actually DAVID or just ISAAC ?

Anyone with anything to solve this mystery,PLEASE E-Mail me at the address below

Thank You Sincerely for any help you can give.

Revolutionary Drummer Boy from Cumberland County died in Indiana The "West Jersey Observer" for Saterday, April 4, 1835, reported this notice of a Revolutionary drummer boy, a native of Cumberland County, New Jersey, who died in Indiana.   "Died", On the 9th of March last, (1835) at his residence in Stillesville, Hendrix County, Indiana, Mr Joel Garrison, late of this County, in his 76th year, When in the revolutionary war being too young to be received as a soldier he enlisted as a drummer.
It is interesting to speculate as to the identity of this Joel Garrison. Although the writer does not have actual proof , he beleives Joel Garrison, who eventually settled in Indiana, was the same who stated in an advertisement in the Washington Wig, published at Bridgetown, Cumberland County, New Jersey in February, 1816, that he intended to settle in Ohio and wanted to sell his farm in Deerfield, Cumberland County before leaving for the "West". If Joel, of Indiana, was the Joel who left Deerfield for Ohio in 1816, then he was the son of David Garrison who died in Deerfield in 1790. This is shown in deeds recorded in the Cumberland County Clerks Office in Bridgetown. ( See p. 467, col 1, of this issue)
In the eighteenth century as well as the first half of the nineteenth, the name Garrison was as common as Smith in Cumberland County, New Jersey. Even more so. These numerous Garrison 's descended from a common ancestor, viz., Jacob Garrison, of Turkey Point, Fairfield Township, (now Downe) Cumberland County. Jacob Garrison died between June 9, 1708 and January 7, 1708/9.
Jacob Garrison, of Turkey Point, had six sons, viz., Isaac, Garrett, Peter, Jacob, John and Abraham.
Isaac Garrison Remained in Fairfield Township and left many descendants. Garrett moved to Deerfield Township by the year 1700, as is shown in an originial unrecorded deed in possession of the writer. This deed calls him of "Daresfield near Cohenzy" and is dated September 8, 1700. Garrett then lived on the Indian Fields Tract, just east of and now a part of the city of Bridgetown. This place has long been known as the Dare farm, having been purchased by William Dare from Garrett Garrison on November 18, 1710. This information has not been heretofore been published and the whereabouts of Garrett Garrison, after he left Turkey Point, by the year 1700, has remained unknown, because the deed in which this record is contained, has never been recorded and is privatley owned.
Jacob Garrison , Jr. (born 1676; died 1751), like his brothers Garrett and Abraham, also moved to Deerfield, Jacob Jr has thousands of descendants living today, of which your editor is one. (cont p. 470 Col 1)

Abraham Garrison moved to Deerfield from Turkey Point at an early date. He was living on or near the Indian Fields Tract on March 9 1722/3, when he along with his first wife, "Katherine", witnessed the will of Ephriam Seeley, of "Darefield", "Nillr". Ephriam Seeley erected a grist and fulling mill on Indian Fields Run prior to 1700. His property immediately bounded on the land owned by Garret Garrison in 1700. At a later date, Abraham Garrison bought land in the northeast corner of Cumberland County adjoining the line between Deerfield Township in Cumberland County and Pittsgrove Township in Salem County. This land was near the head of Kuddy Run. He died on this place on October, 1766. Thee are thousands of descendants of Abraham Garrison living in the Western States, in Pennsylvania, Ohio and in the South.

Children by first wife were; JOEL, MARY, (married Peter Paris) and ELIZABETH. By Mary Ogden he had; DAVID OGDEN, JOSIAH, and AZEL. (New Jersey archives, Vol VII, p.86)
