THE GARRISON FAMILY

My earliest known GARRISON is James Manly GARRISON, who was born in Ontario, Canada, in 1861. I'm still trying to determine, with some level of certainty, who his parents are. I know his mother's name was Susan, and I suspect that she herself was a GARRISON, but I need to do some more digging to learn the truth. James and his mother relocated to Detroit, Wayne, Michigan about 1871, and James later moved to Chicago, Cook, Illinois. My direct line is in red.
