Our Progenitor Samuel Veale Allison, Sr.

 

SAMUEL VEALE ALLISON, SR. MAY HAVE BEEN BORN IN NEW JERSEY OR IN WARM SPRINGS, VIRGINIA, DEPENDING ON WHO IS TELLING THE STORY. I THINK NEW JERSEY IS THE BETTER BET. (jwa)

 

BASED UPON THE STATEMENTS OF D.C. ALLISON AND CATHERINE ALLISON, WHICH MAY BE IN ERROR, THE ALLISON FAMILIES CAME FROM NORTH OR SOUTH CAROLINA. COULD THEY HAVE COME FROM SPARTANBURG COUNTY OR LAURENS COUNTY IN SOUTH CAROLINA SINCE THAT WAS NEAR THE BATTLE OF COW PENS WHICH IS WHERE REBECCA MOODY, WIFE OF FREDERICK ALLISON IS FROM (ASSUMING SHE WAS NEAR THE BATTLE SITE WHEN SHE MADE BULLETS FOR THE REVOLUTION)?

 

ACCORDING TO THE HEADS OF FAMILIES AT THE FIRST CENSUS OF THE UNITED STATES TAKEN IN THE YEAR 1790 FOR SOUTH CAROLINA, AS PUBLISHED IN 1908 ON PAGE 75, THERE WAS A SAMUEL ALLISON SHOWN IN 96 DISTRICT, LAURENS COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA AS HAVING NO SLAVES (WHICH WOULD FIT IN WITH THE MARIA CREEK RESOLUTIONS THAT NO SLAVES COULD BE OWNED), 1 FREE WHITE MALE OF 16 YEARS OF AGE AND UPWARD INCLUDING HEADS OF FAMILIES ( WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN SAMUEL ALLISON, SR.) 3 WHITE MALES UNDER 16 YEARS OF AGE (WHICH WOULD ONLY FIT IF SOME OF THE CHILDREN WERE BORN DURING OR AFTER THE YEAR 1790 SINCE THERE WERE 7 SONS, BEING SAMUEL ALLISON, JR., RICHARD ALLISON, ISAAC ALLISON, JOHN ALLISON, DANIEL ALLISON, FREDERICK ALLISON AND EZRA ALLISON), AND 4 FREE WHITE FEMALES, INCLUDING HEADS OF FAMILIES (WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN SAMUEL ALLISON'S WIFE, PHEBE, LYDIA ALLISON, NANCY ALLISON AND DAUGHTER PHEBE ALLISON). HOWEVER, INFORMATION PROVIDED BY RON HERD (COPIES OF LOCAL WILLS IN LAURENS COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA, ETC.) WOULD INDICATE THAT THE SAMUEL AND JOSEPH ALLISON IN LAURENS COUNTY AT THIS TIME WOULD PROBABLY NOT HAVE BEEN OUR SAMUEL AND JOSEPH ALLISON

 

ACCORDING TO THE FIRST CENSUS OF KENTUCKY, 1790 AS PUBLISHED IN 1981, THERE WAS NO SAMUEL ALLISON LISTED ON THE TAX LIST. HOWEVER THERE IS A JOHN ALLISON LISTED IN MASON COUNTY ON AUGUST 21, 1790 AND THERE IS A ROBERT ALLISON LISTED ON THE TAX LIST FOR BOURBON COUNTY IN MARCH, 1791.

 

THERE IS A CONFLICT OF STORIES AS TO WHERE SAMUEL ALLISON, SR. WAS BORN AND RAISED. ONE STORY OF ONE GRANDSON OF SAMUEL ALLISON SAYS NEW JERSEY AND ANOTHER GRANDSON OF SAMUEL ALLISON SAYS WARM SPRINGS, VIRGINIA, AS FOLLOWS:

 

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS FROM THE PRIMITIVE BAPTIST CHURCH PUBLICATION CALLED THE SIGN OF THE TIMES (PAGE 315), UNDER OBITUARY NOTICES:

 

OBITUARY NOTICES

 

ELDER JOSEPH PERRY ALLISON DIED AT HIS HOME IN OREGON CITY, OREGON, APRIL 1ST, 1911, AGED 80 YEARS AND 28 DAYS. HE WAS THE SON OF ELDER RICHARD S. ALLISON AND LAVINIA ALLISON. HE WAS BORN IN BRADFORD (JWA- NOTE. SHOULD BE CRAWFORD COUNTY), ILLINOIS, MARCH 4, 1831. HIS GREAT-GRANDFATHER CAME FROM SCOTLAND. HIS GRANDFATHER WAS RAISED IN NEW JERSEY, AND LIVED THERE UNTIL AFTER THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR, AND THEN EMIGRATED TO KENTUCKY, WHERE HE RESIDED UNTIL THE YEAR 1808, WHEN HE MOVED TO LAWRENCE COUNTY, ILLINOIS, AND SETTLED ALLISON PRAIRIE, WHICH STILL BEARS THAT NAME, I BELIEVE. HERE THEY WERE COMPELLED TO BUILD A FORT TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM INDIANS.

 

 

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS FROM THE SOLDIER'S AND CITIZENS ALBUM OF BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD, PUBLISHED IN 1890 BY THE GRAND ARMY PUBLISHING COMPANY WHICH WAS IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS:

 

JOHN W. ALLISON, LA CROSSE, WISCONSIN, MEMBER OF G.O.P. POST 38, WAS BORN AUGUST 28, 1828, IN CRAWFORD COUNTY, ILLINOIS. HE REPRESENTS STOCK WHICH WAS EARLY IDENTIFIED WITH THE HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY, HIS GREAT GRANDFATHER ALLISON HAVING EMIGRATED TO AMERICA FROM SCOTLAND AND SETTLED IN VIRGINIA, WHERE HIS SON SAMUEL WAS BORN. HE WAS MARRIED THERE AND THERE RICHARD S., FATHER OF MR. ALLISON OF THIS SKETCH, WAS BORN. THE LATTER MARRIED LAVINA LAMASTERS AND THEY HAD 12 CHILDREN, OF WHOM SIX ARE LIVING IN 1890. RICHARD ALLISON WAS BORN NOV. 6, 1798, AT WARM SPRINGS, THE BIRTHPLACE OF HIS FATHER AND GRANDFATHER, AND WAS A CABINET MAKER BY TRADE AND ALSO DONATED HIS SERVICES AS A BAPTIST CLERGYMAN TO THE CHURCH. HIS PARENTS WENT IN HIS YOUTH TO KENTUCKY AND THENCE TO WHAT IS NOW LAWRENCE COUNTY, ILLINOIS. THAT PORTION OF THE STATE WAS INFESTED WITH INDIANS AND THEY RETURNED TO KENTUCKY AND AGAIN WENT BACK TO THE SAME LOCATION IN ILLINOIS. (ABOUT THE SAME TIME THE FIRST HARRISON WENT TO MARSHAL COUNTY, INDIANA, AND BUILT FORT HARRISON AT TIPPECANOE.)

 

THERE WAS A SAMUEL ALLISON, A HENRY ALLISON AND A JOSEPH ALLISON ON THE MASON COUNTY TAX ROLLS IN 1800. JOSEPH

ALLISON WAS STILL ON THE TAX ROLLS IN 1810.

 

A PHOEBE ALLISON IS MENTIONED AS AN HEIR IN THE WILL OF DAVID YOUNGS, 11 APRIL 1817. ABSTRACTED FROM PAGE 262 OF THE CHRISTIAN COUNTY, KENTUCKY WILLS, KENTUCKY REGISTER VOL 25, PAGE 185. (jwa-HOWEVER DOES THIS MAKE SENSE? SHE WOULD HAVE MARRIED SAMUEL ALLISON IN THE 1770S BEFORE THEY EVEN LEFT NEW JERSEY IN 1783. UNLESS HER FATHER

MOVED TO KENTUCKY WITH SAMUEL, HE WOULD NOT HAVE HAD HIS WILL PROBATED IN KENTUCKY)

 

THE FOLLOWING IS FROM THE BOOK HISTORY OF KENTUCKY BAPTISTS BY SPENCER:

 

STONE LICK CHURCH IS LOCATED IN MASON COUNTY. IT WAS GATHERED BY WILLIAM WOOD, THE FIRST PREACHER THAT SETTLED IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE STATE, BY WHOM ALSO IT WAS CONSTITUTED, MARCH 1, 1796. IT UNITED WITH ELK HORN ASSOCIATION THE SAME YEAR. IT REPORTED 20 MEMBERS. THE FOLLOWING YEAR 42 WERE BAPTIZED INTO ITS FELLOWSHIP, INCREASING ITS MEMBERSHIP TO 70. IN 1799 IT UNITED IN THE CONSTITUTION OF BRACKEN ASSOCIATION. WITH THIS BODY IT REMAINED A NUMBER OF YEARS, AND THEN UNITED WITH LICKING ASSOCIATION OF PARTICULAR BAPTISTS. IN 1838 IT REPORTED TO THAT BODY 19 MEMBERS. LIKE MOST, IF NOT ALL, THE CHURCHES IN THAT FRATERNITY, IT CONTINUED TO DWINDLE AWAY, TILL IN

1876, IT REPORTED ONLY 9 MEMBERS. OF ITS EARLY PASTORS, EXCEPT WILLIAM WOOD, A SKETCH OF WHOSE LIFE HAS BEEN GIVEN, NO INFORMATION IS AT HAND.

 

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS TAKEN FROM THE BOOK "KENTUCKY PIONEERS AND THEIR DESCENDANTS" BY THE DAUGHTERS OF COLONIAL WARS, KENTUCKY:

 

BRACKEN BAPTIST CHURCH 1799-1836

 

CHURCHES AND MESSENGERS

 

COPIED FROM MINUTES OF THE BRACKEN ASSOCIATION OF BAPTISTS HELD AT STONE LICK CHURCH, MASON COUNTY,

KENTUCKY, MINUTES, SEPT. 18, 19, 20, 180_(2?):

 

INDIAN RUN - JOHN KING, SAMUEL ALLISON

 

(NOTE: IN 1803 THE CHURCH MESSENGERS FOR INDIAN RUN WAS THOMAS MILLS AND JOHN KING)

 

 

 

THE FOLLOWING IS QUOTED OR PARAPHRASED FROM THE BOOK, OLD VINCENNES, PUBLISHED IN 1962.:

 

ON FEBRUARY 3, 1809, ILLINOIS TERRITORY WAS FORMED. IT CLAIMED A POPULATION OF OVER 12,000 PEOPLE. IT TOOK IN ALL THE AREA WEST OF VINCENNES TO THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER, AND FROM THE OHIO RIVER TO THE CANADIAN BORDER. MANY OF ITS LEADING INSTIGATORS WERE FORMER RESIDENTS OR TRADERS AT OLD VINCENNES. AND THEY YET REMAINED ANTI-HARRISON IN THEIR SENTIMENTS, THOUGH ALL THIS HAPPENED YEARS AGO.

 

ON 13 MARCH 1809, LODGE NUMBER 15 OF KENTUCKY WAS AUTHORIZED FOR VINCENNES. IT IS NOW AND HAS BEEN LODGE NUMBER 1 OF THE FREE AND ACCEPTED MASONS SINCE 13 JANUARY, 1818. ITS ROSTER HAS ALWAYS CARRIED THE NAMES OF DISTINGUISHED MEN IN THE BOROUGH.

 

ON MAY 20, 1809, THIRTEEN MEMBERS OF THE ALLISON, BRUCE, LEMEN, AND POLKE FAMILIES ORGANIZED MARIAH (MARIE) CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH. THE PRESENT CHURCH BEARING THAT NAME IS ON ITS THIRD SITE, AND THE LOCAL CHURCH IS LOOKING FORWARD TO ITS CENTENNIAL.

 

 

 

THE FOLLOWING EXCERPT IS TAKEN FROM THE "ILLUSTRATED HISTORICAL ATLAS OF INDIANA, 1875," IN WHICH SEE KNOX COUNTY.

"THE FIRST INSTRUMENT OF RECORD IS A DEED FROM LAURENT BARZADON TO THOMAS MILLS, RECORDED MAY 2TH, 1814, BY ELIHU STOUT, FOUNDER OF THE WESTERN SUN. AMONG THE RECORDS AND CONVEYANCES ARE MANY EXECUTED WHILE THE VILLAGE WAS A COLONY OF FRANCE. MANY OF THEM PRESERVE THE CURIOUS SCROLLS OF THE WHITE BUFFALO "LITTLE TURTLE" AND OTHER WARRIORS WHO CEDED THEIR POSSESSIONS TO THEIR FRIENDS, THE BLACK COATS, AS THEY CALLED THE JESUITS.

 

THE RECORDS OF THE COUNTY WERE DESTROYED BY FIRE IN MARCH, 1814. MR. JOHN D. HAY WAS RECORDER AND POSTMASTER AND BOTH OFFICES WERE KEPT IN HIS STORE ROOMS, THEN CONTAINING ABOUT $20,000.00 WORTH OF GOODS. ALL WERE DESTROYED AND TWO OF MR. HAY'S CHILDREN PERISHED IN THE FLAMES THE SAME FATAL NIGHT."

THE ABOVE CONVEYANCE PERTAINS TO LOCATION NO. 2, AT THE LITTLE VILLAGE. CONFIRMED TO ALEXIS LADEROIT AS A CITIZEN OF VINCENNES IN 1783, AND BY HIM CONVEYED TO LAURANT BAZADON (NOTE SPELLING) ON 24TH OF FEBRUARY, 1814. (GEORGE GREEN, IN HISTORY OF KNOX COUNTY SAYS JANUARY 24.) IN THE DEED OF CONVEYANCE TO THOMAS MILLS THE LAND IS FURTHER DESCRIBED AS OF "THE LITTLE PRAIRIE OF THE LITTLE VILLAGE" OF THE UPPERSIDE OF THE SURVEY, CONTAINING 133 AND 2/3 ACRES, APPROXIMATELY AND AREA OF 40 X 4 ARPENTS, IN ENGLISH MEASUREMENT OF 136.16 ACRES.

 

THOMAS MILLS AND HIS WIFE PHEBE (note:jwa-Is this correct as to Phebe or should this be Lydia?) CONVEYED THE LOCATION TO THEIR SON JOHN ON 13TH OF MAY 1826. HE MAY HAVE NOT ALLOWED FOR THE ACREAGE IN THE CEMETERY.

 

THE THREE COUNTY HISTORY STATES THAT LITTLE VILLAGE CEMETERY WAS LAID OUT BY JOHN MILLS IN 1818, JUST NORTH OF PRESENT RUSSELVILLE, OLD MR. MCBANE WAS THE FIRST PERSON BURIED THERE, THE NEXT SAMUEL ALLISON AND THE THIRD DANIEL KUYKENDALL. THERE MAY BE AN ERROR AS TO NAME FOR JOHN DID NOT RECEIVE THE LAND UNTIL 1826.

 

OLD MR. MCBANE, (JOHN L. MCBANE) WAS AT TIPPECANOE AND HAD A SMALL LOCATION, THE LAST ON THE UPPERSIDE OF LITTLE PRAIRIE, AND CROSSED BY THE PALESTINE ROAD. MCBANE HAD A SON AND TWO DAUGHTERS, THE LATTER MARY AND ELLEN. THERE WAS A PENELOPE WHO IS NOT MENTIONED IN COUNTY HISTORY. SHE MARRIED IN 1824, HENRY STOCKWELL OF LOCATION NO. 4 ADJACENT TO THE SOUTH. KUYKENDALL WAS UNMARRIED.

 

IN 1822, SAMUEL V. ALLISON MARRIED MATILDA MILLS, DAUGHTER OF THOMAS AND SISTER OF JOHN ABOVE. SAMUEL AND MATILDA CONVEY LANDS IN 1845 BUT IN 1851 HE ALONE CONVEYS A 1/5TH INTEREST IN 170 ACRES TO SAMUEL H. ALLISON, OF CRAWFORD

COUNTY IN LANDS INCLUDING THE GRAVEYARD. THE LITTLE VILLAGE CEMETERY WAS LOCATED ON THE WEST BANK OF FLAT CREEK, BEGINNING AT THE SOUTH EDGE OF THE MILLS LOCATION AND TO THE EAST OF THE PALESTINE ROAD. JOHN ALLISON MARRIED LYDIA MILLS IN 1813 AND DANIEL MARRIED POLLY IN 1815.

 

PHEBE ALLISON AND THOMAS WILKS MARRIED 1827 (SPELLING PROBABLY WILKES AND NOTE IN CONNECTION, JOSEPH WILKES WHO SIGNED THE LETTER ADDRESSED TO GENERAL GIBSON).

 

SAMUEL V. ALLISON LAID OFF THE ALLISON ADDITION TO THE VILLAGE OF RUSSELVILLE.

 

 

ALLISON FAMILY

 

THE ALLISON FAMILY CAME FROM MASON COUNTY, KENTUCKY AND JUDGING OF ITS CONNECTION WITH THE MILLS FAMILY WERE FROM OR NEAR MILLS STATION. SAMUEL WAS THOROUGH GOING IN ALL HIS WAYS, A STEADFAST BAPTIST FROM MARIA CREEK TO THE END OF HIS DAYS. HE SHARED IN THE LITTLE VILLAGE BAPTIST CHURCH, ITS BUILDING BEING IN THE LITTLE VILLAGE CEMETERY, AND WHEN MOVED AND LOCATED AT CAANAN IN MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP. HE WAS A MIGHTY HUNTER AND WITHAL AN EXEMPLARY EXAMPLE AND USEFUL CITIZEN. HE IS CREDITED FOR PROJECTING AND BUILDING THE FORT TO WHICH HIS NAME WAS GIVEN AS WELL AS TO A PRAIRIE AND A TOWNSHIP. HIS WIFE WAS NAMED PHEBE, HIS CHILDREN, DAVID, JOHN, ISAAC, RICHARD, SAMUEL, JR., NANCY, LYDIA AND PHEBE, ALL UNMARRIED IN 1812.

 

SAMUEL HAD A SON FREDERICK H. WHO MARRIED REBECCA MOODY IN 1800 AND EZRA H. MARRIED JANE LONG IN 1803. THE BONDSMAN FOR FREDERICK H. WAS JACOB M. HAM, HENCE WE HAVE HAM AS A GIVEN NAME, AS FOR HAM MILLS WELL KNOWN IN POLITICAL CIRCLES AS WELL AS POSTMASTER OF LAWRENCEVILLE. HARVEY ALSO APPEARS AS A GIVEN NAME.

 

SAMUEL HAD EZRA H., WHO IS LISTED LAST ON THE APPEAL TO GENERAL GIBSON FOR HELP. HE WAS MARRIED BEFORE LEAVING KENTUCKY.

 

SAMUEL HAD A SON JR., PRESUMABLY SAMUEL H. (jwa-NOTE: I THINK IT WAS SAMUEL V. ALLISON WHO MARRIED MATILDA MILLS) WHO MARRIED POLLY HIGHSMITH IN 1808. SAMUEL HAD BROTHER JONATHAN WHO HAD CHILDREN, DAVID, JOSEPH, PHEBE, ISAAC

AND NANCY.

 

ROBERT ALLISON DID NOT LOCATE AT LITTLE VILLAGE BUT IN VINCENNES WHERE HE MARRIED MARY ANN BUNTIN IN 1815. (NOTE: ROBERT ALLISON APPLIED FOR A MARRIAGE LICENSE IN KNOX COUNTY, INDIANA ON DECEMBER 18, 1814.)

 

MARRIAGE NOTED: SARAY ALLISON TO ADAM LACKEY, JR. 1819; SAMUEL ALLISON AND SALLY SNIDER, 1818; SARAH ALLISON AND JOHN W. MARTIN, 1825; SAMUEL V. ALLISON AND MATILDA MILLS, 1822; PHEBE ALLISON AND ENOS ORGAN, 1824; NANCY ALLISON AND JOHN SNIDER, 1825; ANNA ALLISON AND ABRAHAM SNIDER, 1825; SAMUEL W. ALLISON AND ELIZABETH SELLERS, 1829; MELISSA ALLISON AND RANDOLPH HEATH, 1830; PHEBE H. ALLISON AND D.M. HIGHSMITH,1836; ANDREW ALLISON AND POLLY EMMONS, 1846;, WHOSE DAUGHTER, LYDIA , MARRIED SEWELL TOBEY.

 

MISS LEONA TOBEY, ASSISTANT LIBRARIAN OF THE INDIANA STATE LIBRARY TWENTY YEARS AGO, GAVE MUCH STUDY TO THE ALLISON FAMILY. SHE WAS A DESCENDANT OF LYDIA.

 

LOUISA ALLISON AND ENOCH WESNER OF MONTGOMERY TOWNSHIP IN CRAWFORD COUNTY WERE MARRIED IN 1828. THE FOREGOING ENUMERATION IS INTENDED TO INCLUDE ALLISONS OF THE SECOND AND THIRD GENERATION WHO MAY HAVE BEEN IN THE FORT AND MAYBE HUSBAND OR WIFE ALSO AS THE CASE MAY BE.

 

THE FOLLOWING IS FROM A CERTIFIED COPY OF AN INDENTURE DATED JANUARY 5, 1818 WHICH WAS NOTARIZED JANUARY 23, 1817 (IT WAS PROBABLY A MISTAKE AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN NOTARIZED ON JANUARY 23, 1818.)

SAMUEL ALLISON (SEAL) RECORDED SEPT 4, 1819

DEED RECORD B, PAGES 392

PHEBE ALLISON (SEAL) AND 393 IN RECORDERS

OFFICE

 

ACCORDING TO A FAMILY TREE PREPARED BY ELIZABETH ANN ALLISON CIRCA 1973 SAMUEL ALLISON'S MIDDLE INITIAL WAS "W" AND HE WAS 70 YEARS OLD WHEN HE DIED.(jwa- BASED UPON THE ASSIGNMENT FROM SAMUEL AND PHEBE ALLISON TO SAMUEL ALLISON, JR., WHEN READ IN CONJUNCTION WITH OTHER DOCUMENTS SIGNED BY SAMUEL V. ALLISON LATER ON, IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THE MIDDLE INITIAL OF BOTH SAMUEL ALLISON, SR. AND JR. IS "V").

 

 

 

THE FOLLOWING INFOMATION WOULD INDICATE THAT THERE WAS A SAMUEL ALLISON, SR. AND A SAMUEL ALLISON, JR. ALSO THAT SAMUEL ALLISON, SR. MUST HAVE DIED AFTER SEPTEMBER, 8TH, 1819. THIS INFORMATION IS FROM PAGE 24 OF THE CRAWFORD COUNTY COURT MINUTES 1817 -1824 AS INDEXED BY BURL RICH (FOR THE DATE SEPTEMBER 7, 1819):

 

ORDERED THAT SAML. BAKER, SAML. ALLISON SENR. AND ROBERT BENNEFIELD BE AND THEY ARE HEREBY APPOINTED TO MARK OUT & VIEW THE NEAREST & BEST WAY FOR A ROAD LEADING FROM DUBOIS MILL ON THE EMBARRASS DUE WEST TO WHERE IT WILL INTERSECT THE ST. LEWIS ROAD AND REPORT TO NEXT ROAD.

 

THE ILLINOIS CENSUS RETURNS OF 1820 FOR CRAWFORD COUNTY, ILLINOIS SHOWS THAT FOR THE COUNTY OF CRAWFORD THERE WAS A PHEBE ALLISON WHO WAS THE HEAD OF A FAMILY WITH NO MALES OVER 21 AND 7 OTHER WHITE MEMBERS. HER NAME IS ALSO IN THE 1818 CRAWFORD COUNTY CENSUS AND IN THE FEDERAL 1820 CENSUS.

 

 

 

THE IGI SHOWS THE FOLLOWING BIRTHDATES FOR THE CHILDREN OF SAMUEL AND PHEOBE ALLISON (jwa-I WOULD NOT PUT MUCH

FAITH IN ANY OF THESE DATES):

 

REV. RICHARD ALLISON (WRONG) CA.1771

FREDERICK HORTON ALLISON CA.1775

EZRA H. ALLISON (WRONG) CA.1775

DANIEL ALLISON CA.1777

JOHN ALLISON (WRONG) CA.1779

ISAAC ALLISON (wrong) CA.1776

SAMUEL H.(V?-jwa) ALLISON, JR. (WRONG) CA.1781

NANCY E. ALLISON CA.1781

LYDIA ALLISON CA.1782

PHEOBE ALLISON CA.1784

 

I DON'T FEEL THAT THESE IGI DATES ARE VERY RELIABLE. ONLY FREDERICK AND EZRA SUPPOSEDLY HAD CHILDREN WHEN THEY CAME TO ILLINOIS IN 1809. I WOULD THINK THAT SOME OF THE CHILDREN OF SAMUEL AND AND PHEBE ALLISON WOULD HAVE HAD TO HAVE BEEN YOUNGER THAN SHOWN IN THE IGI WHEN THEY CAME TO ILLINOIS. OTHERWISE IT WOULD APPEAR THAT ALL OF THE ALLISON CHILDREN WERE MARRIED RATHER LATE IN LIFE. FOR EXAMPLE, I SHOW RICHARD S. ALLISON WAS BORN IN 1798 AS PER THE 1840 CENSUS INSTEAD OF CA.1771. DEFINITELY A DISPARITY AS TO HIS BIRTHDATE.
