Garrison, Llewellyn O. (17 MAR 1850 - 11 JAN 1913)

Llewellyn Orestes Garrison, pioneer merchant and banker, died suddenly of heart disease at his home in this village (Thorp, Clark Co., Wis.) sometime during Saturday night last. Mr. Garrison left the bank Saturday afternoon in good spirits and evidently enjoying good health. In the evening he sat reading when Mrs. Garrison retired. The next morning he was found cold in death in bed by Mrs. Garrison, having evidently expired without a struggle. Mr. Garrison was born on March 17, 1850 in McHenry Co., Ill., and later with his parents moved to Grand Rapids, Wis., where he spent his boyhood days and school life. He later attended Eastman College at Poughkeepsie, N.Y. On May 29, 1874 he was united in marriage to Miss Anna Harkness of the same city. He was employed for a time at Winona, Minn., as bookkeeper, and came to Thorp in February 1880.

The remains were taken to Grand Rapids on the noon train, accompanied by relatives and friends, for interment.
