At the time of the 1920 Census, he was working as a clerk for the County of Camden, and living with his wife Pearl and her parents, Walter and Bessie Day, at 1143 Langham Avenue in Camden's Parkside section. The marriage would not last, and the Garrisons had been granted a divorce by April of 1930.

Price, Mayor of the City of Camden from 1927 to 1931.  At the time of the 1930 census, Frank Garrison was living at 226 State Street, over a candy store the owned and operated by Charles F. Miller. 226 State Street was converted into a bar, and has been known as the State Bar for most of the last 60 years.

Frank Garrison was still working for the City of Camden as late as 1947, when he was employed as a clerk in the City Clerk's office. He was then living at 222 North 2nd Street.
