I saw your post about Thomas Allison of Bedford county TN from 2000. You mentioned that you have much history about the family. I am a descendant of Thomas Barnet Allison, a later Thomas than the one you spoke of but I am hoping to make a connection with my Thomas to the many other Allisons in Bedford county at that time or earlier. He lived 1830-1886 and was married only once, to Mary Ellen Chapmen in 1851. I have several pictures of her and some other Allisons, but none of Thomas. Thomas was a Civil War veteran also. I'm looking for the names and dates on his parents, who I believe were born in NC, county unknown. I think there may be a connection to Robert Allison, an immigrant from Scotland. They are all buried in Wilow Mount Cemetery. Could you please help me out? I've been stuck at Thomas for about three years now and I really want to move on.
