Re: John ALLERTON, Sr. > OH
I really live too far away and due to family and work constraints it would be difficult for me to travel so far away for these reunions you mention.
I have found the book you mentioned and also DAR records which were on microfilm. Elizabeth Greggs name comes from this book you said which could be in error which I had heard from other parties also. but for now I used it since there were no other resources available to base most of my stuff on. The book is an older book and aware that research then is much different than the way we can do it now.
I started this as a hobby and gotten too deep into it .My tree with so many generations has become a monster now and creates also many debates amongst researchers on some of my lines. I really just want to finish it up what I can for now since will be starting a new job which will be consuming great deal of my free time I had for research.
I will kindly pass for now on the Allerton society and the research papers. Would not want to put you to any trouble. Eventually I will get someone to find the appropiate papers at the Archives in Washington. NARA has now an abreviated packette you can order for military records for a smaller fee than what they use to charge realizing often lots of papers in these records all do not have lot of genealogical info in them. They now will sort the papers out and only copy certain ones for small fee like $17 and if you want all of them then it is something like $50 now. I will try contacting them again, perhaps the clerk who did my request made an error when looking.
