I'm also interested in Yelverton Garrison. I'm a historian in Stafford County, Virginia and work primarily with land tracts, mills, and industries. I really don't work much with genealogy, but do manage to come across information about a good number of people who lived here in the county. I have a diary in which the writer referred to him as "Yelly" Garrison. Like many of the Garrisons, he was a blacksmith. He died around 1867 and his modest estate inventory is on file in the Stafford courthouse. It included carpenter's tools, 1 clock, 1 paint grinder, and household and kitchen furniture all valued at $49.00 (Stafford Deed Book 26A, p. 480). A Garrison researcher told me that Yelverton's parents were Moses Garrison, Jr. (1776-after 1850) and Mary Peyton (c.1798-after 1850). That makes sense to me as Yelverton was a given name used in the Peyton family.
Yelverton was included several times in the Stafford militia records. In 1813 he was fined for failing to appear for muster. in 1837 he was a 2nd lieutenant in an artillery company. He was replaced as such in 1842 by his neighbor, Charles E. Gill.
The only thing I have for Alexander Ellsworth Garrison is that in 1870 he was an overseer of "the road known as the river road to Hoes Fishing Shore." This was actually Elias Hore's fishing shore that was located at the junction of Chappawamsic Creek and the Potomac River. That tells me that at this time Alex lived northeast of Garrisonville, which is where Yelverton resided.
This doesn't really answer your questions, but it's all I have.
