Hi Peggie,

Are you a descendant of Zebulon & Rebekah? If so, you're my cousin. My mother was raised by her Garrison grandparents in the Walshville Illinois neighborhood where Zebulon & Rebekah died. Her grandfather was their grandson. We don't yet know Rebekah's parents but always looking for clues. Email me if you would like to be on my mailing list of descendants or discuss the clues.

Hi Peggy, I'm sure you meant to say Zebulon & Susannah's granddaughter married Israel Johnson but I'll just show the lineage so others won't get confused. Zebulon's daughter Susannah born about 1800 married Malaki Smith in Georgia. Susannah and Malaki had 12 children including Susannah born about 1832. She married Israel Johnson who was then the executor of her mother Susannah's will.

Then I need your help. Looks like I just picked up the names from census listings which are notorious for being wrong. I'm showing eight children for them including daughters Malany about 1856, Molona about 1856, and Melina about 1862. I'm sure one of these should be your Marlina who married William Free. How about posting a correct list of these Garrison descendants so I can correct my tree?

Thank you for the information about the Johnson and Free children. That really helps.

I think you're still missing a generation.

Malaki Smith (born about 1794 in Georgia)
Susannah Garrison (born about 1800 in Georgia)
married September 11, 1814 in Franklin Co., GA

Malaki died May 5, 1859 and Susannah died July 1866. Malaki's wife Susannah Garrison Smith was about 60 years old when Malaki died.

Their daughter Susannah Smith born about 1832 in Illinois married Israel Johnson February 17, 1853 in Macoupin County, Illinois, six years before her father Malaki died and 13 years before her mother Susannah Garrison Smith died at the age of 66.

Malaki Smith's estate was administered by his son Wiley Smith.

The probate file in Montgomery County Illinois shows that the estate of Susannah Garrison Smith deceased July 6, 1866 was administered by Israel Johnson. This was his mother-in-law, still named Smith, not his wife. Susannah Garrison did not remarry after the death of Malaki.

Israel's wife Susan/Susannah Smith Johnson was still alive in the 1870 census but appears to have died before 1878 when Israel married Hannah Sanderson.

I'm sorry, I don't know anything about Malaki's parents. He was born in Georgia so his parents were probably neighbors of Zebulon & Rebekah in Franklin Co GA.

I descend from Zebulon & Rebekah's youngest child, Caleb Garrison who married Susannah Clark. Caleb was born about 1817 so Susannah Garrison Smith had already married and left home by the time her youngest brother was born. Caleb's son James Allan Garrison was my mother's grandfather.
