At one year of age he emigrated with his parents to St Catherines in
Ontario. (1857) . .The town of Garson, previously Lyall, Manitoba was named after him where he was best known as a contractor and a founder and developer of limestone quarries. He was also involved in city and provincial politics
and became a Liberal-Labour member of the Ontario Goverment, for Lincoln, 1887-1890, at the ageof 31. The town of Garson Ontario was also named after him in 1907.
He was considered quite a wit and his numerous speeches were
widely quoted. He was also attacked by the Press. One quote-- "One hour
of his time (Garson's), he informs the public , is as valuable as ten
hours of somebody elses time " (the reference being presumably to the
Mayor). "This leaves Mr. Garson free to spend the other nine hours on the
street corners and elsewhere gasconading." (See on file the History of
Western Canada, the Garson Family).

Property of Capt Cottigall & Mrs Bruce.
Samuel Anderson,Point paid 5 pounds of rent and was 6 pounds 10
shillings in arrears. He held 14 acres arable and 3 of outrun. When his
grandfather*entered the place in 1813 there was no arable land and no
house. His grandfather built the house and all that was on the place
now had been put there by his grandfather, father and himself without
any assistance from the proprietor. From 1813 to1832 his grandfather held
the place rent free. The rent was then 4 pounds till 1872 when Capt
Corrigal raised it to 5 pounds. Cross examined.--The
witness said he was a fisherman,and had made a good fishing at Stromness
this year. He had got 800 crans of herring, but he had not got the money
yet, and might not get any. Mr Thomson explained that during recent
years the experience was that fishermen were ruined by the failure of
the fish curers. Chairman.(to witness).--What engagement had you with
the curers this year? Answer.--15 to 12 shillings a cran for fish
delivered. Mr Thomson.--He only had a 1/3 share of the boat. Mr
Brown put a few more questions but the chairmen thought they had heard
enough on the subject. Decision.---The rent was reduced from 5 pounds
to 4 pounds. Of the 6 pounds 10 shillings of arrears, 1 pound 10
shillings were cancelled, and the balance of 5 pounds ordered to be paid
in two instalments of 2 pounds 10 shillings.
