Thank you for your response.I think your John Alleman, 1825-1889, is Mary (Miller) Alleman's son. In the 1850 Census of East Hanover Township, Dauphin County, PA, Mary and John Alleman (Sr.) and 5 of their children, John, Elizabeth, Louisa, Samuel, and Henry, are listed.I cannot find John Alleman, Sr., in the census records after that date.In the 1860 Census, Mary Alleman is living with her brother, John Miller, and her mother, Rosanna Miller, age 93, in Palmyra, Lebanon County, PA. Mary continued to reside with her brother in Palmyra at the time of the 1870 Census, and then she was living with her daughter, Sarah Elizabeth Zimmerman, and son-in-law, Adam C. Zimmerman, in Jackson, Dauphin County, PA at the time of the 1880 Census.
Did John Alleman, Sr., who was born about 1791-1794, die before 1860?A family tree on the internet reports that John Alleman died in 1878 and was buried in a cemetery in Grantville, East Hanover Township, Dauphin County.If true, with whom was John living between 1860 and 1878? It also reports that Mary (Miller) Alleman died in 1883 and was buried at St. Peter's (Fetterhoff's) Cemetery in Halifax Township, Dauphin County.I looked up Fetterhoff's Cemetery in Oscar H. Stroh's book, "Dauphin County Tombstone Inscriptions," and did not find a listing for Mary Alleman.
Any additional information about this family would be greatly appreciated.If you would like information about Mary Alleman's Miller and Mennig/Minnich families, I will be happy to share it.
