Re: Ellis Allison of Wythe Co.,VA
Hooray!That is the man.My mother (now 89) grew up by the mouth of Reed Creek on New
River and was close friends with Ellis Allison's family -- he ran a little store
there at the "swinging bridge".It was understood that they were some degree of
cousins to her, and now we know.The missing link between Holbert and Ellis was
James A. Allison m Mary Beatty Sayers.My connection is the father-in-law of James Allison --
Janet's father John Craig, who is my ancestor.John's daughter Nancy married my ancestor
Samuel Crockett who therefore was the uncle of Holbert and gguncle of Ellis Allison.
There may be other connections through the Thompsons or the Sayers, too, but I will have
to dig into my computer a little more.
