For the February installment of Crestleaf’s 12 Months of Fascinating Family Finds challenge, I have been researching the mysterious Miss Killian who was part of a story included at the end of my previous Life in the Past Lane post, Major Brown’s Journey: Part One.

My second great grandfather, Major Brown Garrison, has truly captivated my imagination. Perhaps it is because I have found more information on him than many on my line, or perhaps it is because his story begins before the Civil War and ends in 1914, and sees so much change in between. Either way, researching him has been great fun and I hope to keep finding tidbits of information about his life.
