In response to our earlier message about Rebecca Cowen and Joseph J. Allison, (9/17/99) Marvin wrote:
"Rebecca Cowan, daughter of James Cowan and Rachel McDowell was married to James McCabe, February 15, 1822, at Clark county, IL."
Subsequent to our 1999 posting, we have confirmed that the Rebecca Cowan who married James B. McCabe on August 15, 1825 (?not Feb. 15, 1822?), Clark County, IL, divorced James B. McCabe and then married Joseph Allison in Vigo County, IN, June 1, 1831.
But we do not know what happened to Joseph J. Allison.By 1833, he was "out of the picture", presumably deceased, but no records (cemetery or civil) have shown up in Vigo County, IN, yet Rebecca was still in Vigo County, IN in 1833.
Also, we have NOT been able to find any Allison family histories or research that discuss this Joseph J. Allison family.Any help with this Allison family would be appreciated
