Thank you for responding to me.This is the information I have from Ralph Macdonald, a distant cousin of mine.He did extensive research on the Macdonald family.
Harry Alison was married at Belfast on August 9, 1803 by the presbyterian Minister to Frances McCreary and had issue as under up till December 31 1829:
Jane - Born 5 December 1805 and baptised at St. Vincent, W.I. Rowland Hill-Born 13 October 1809 and baptised at St. Vincent, W.I. Charles W.B. - Born 10 October 1811 and baptised at St. Vincent, W.I. Brisbane H. - Born 31 October 1813 and baptised at St. Vincent, W.I. Frances M. - Born 28 October 1815 and baptised at Stonehouse Julia D. - Born 24 September 1817 and baptised at Brighton Ann M. - Born 25 July 1821 and baptised at Stonehouse Mary H. - Born 29 April 1821 and baptised at Malta Peter J. - Born 4 December 1827 and baptised Zante (Ionian Islands)
( The above information was furnished by Harry Alison to the War Office on December 31, 1829)
This website refers to St. Paul's Cemetery in Wisbeach, Ontario where Captain Harry and his wife, Francis Sinclair are buried.The obituary notice for both he and his wife gives pieces of information about his family.Although I am only aware of 9 of their children, the obituary states that they had 13 children and, by the time of his death, had 108 descendants.
I have been able to find a tremendous amount of information on Harry Alison, his children and their spouses from another distant relative.Research into the census records of Ontario Canada show the following:
1852 - Agricultural census for Warwick, Lambdon Co., Ontario - R. H Alison, Harry Aison, Brisbane Alison, and Robert A Hill. (a Fred Rothwile is also present - of the Rothwell family???).
1861 Census of Canada - Warwick, Lambdon, Co, Ontario -several members of the family are in this census, including Captain Harry Alison and his wife Frances Sinclair Alison.
My ancestor, Mary H Alison married William Macdonald.They are in Ontario in 1851, New York in 1860 and 1870, and then back in Canada by the 1881 census.Mary was born in Malta and is relatively easy to find in the census records.They had five children, of whom their son, Harry Macdonald was my great-great grandfather.I knew his daughter, Mary Macdonald (married Geyrge Seymour Irvine), my great-grandmother.Their daughter, Sherife Alison Irvine (married 1. Leonard D Vincent) and one of their three daughters is my mother.
There is a significant amount of information on the internet.In addition, I have been able to gather information from personal family information from individuals who have gone before me.
I hope this helps you find some further information on this fascinating family.Charles Alison, son of Captain Harry and brother to my ancestor, Mary Alison, and to your ancestor, Francis Maria Alison, was envoy to Tehran, Iran for about a dozen years in the 1860-1870s.His is quite a story.There is also a connection to the peerage of England through other members of this same family.It is fascinating.
