This is for Jerrold Hilton;. As a newcomer on-line I have started tracing my Alcott ancestry.The excellent descendent chart of Aug. 27, 1998, that you prepared has been of great help.
My line goes back to Benjamin Elmar Allcott, and I notice in your summary a reference to his father, Daniel Allcox (b. 1778 d. 1805), as a "Captain."Since his age would have fit Revolutionary War times, do you know if it was a real Commission or an Honorary title? Or could there possibly be some confusion with his brother, John, who I believe was a Captain?
