This Week in my Genealogy – Orville W Garrison

On September 20, 1907, my grandfather Orville Wilson Garrison was born in the city of Camden in New Jersey. He grew up in Bridgeton, and his parents were residing there in 1900 and in 1910, but his mother was from Camden. She was likely back in Camden to be with family after her mother passed away there on August 5.

I found two birth certificates for my grandfather in the files I inherited from my grandmother. The first is from the city of Camden and was issued in 1942. The second was from the state of New Jersey and was issued in 1963.

I never met my grandfather. He passed away about four months before I was born, just as his grandmother passed away a little over a month before he was born. He would have been 105 if he were alive today.
