My legal name is Merrill James Garrison. I believe the following will address your query:
Bernard Leslie Garrison (1921-1969) my father.
James Wister Garrison (1892-1978) was his father.
John William Garrison (1847-1922) was his father.
James Barrett Garrison (1827-1910) was his father.
We are trying to positively identify his father and mother. We do know his father's brother is John Rowzee Garrison (1804-1880); we know James Barrett Garrison was John Rowzee Garrison's nephew. Father should be one of the following: Moses W (b. abt.1774) or Roy A M Garrison, or James (b. abt. 1771)
Moses Garrison (1755-?) was their father.
John Garrison (1715-1785) was his father (fought in Revolutionary War).
Isaac Garrison (1685-1758) was his father.
