- - - Subj: RE: Allison fam. Date: 5/12/99, From:ESprouls@@usi.edu (Sprouls, Eric) Susan, In regard to the "Allison Family" attachment. I do not believe James Allison is descended from Alexander Allison. The James Allison who married Catherine Mann belongs to one of the four John Allisons in Nicholas Co., KY. Their history was included in the Nicholas County History and Genealogy book. Summarized as follows: John Allison and ? had the following:
Notice the brothers/sisters relationship with the Manns and Snaps. Interesting that a professional genealogist decided James belonged to Alexander, but I do not believe it.

"The Allison family lived in Nicholas County, KY for some years prior to 1850. Two Allison men headed families in 1810. Either of them could have fathered James Allison who was born in 1811. They were Alexander Allison and John Alison (note one L). Both of these men were on the same page of the Nicholas County, Kentucky 1810 census and were probably brothers. In 1810, Alexander Allison had one male under 10; 5 females under 10 ; two additional females under 25 as well as the adults in his household. Alexlander Allsion and his family have been compiled as possible ancestral. Alexander Allison married Elizabeth Taylor on 2 June 1802 at Nicholas County, KY (L) (extract 8). No Alexander Allison was listed in the 1820 Nicholas County, KY Gensus Index, but Mrs. Elizabeth Allison married David Feeback on 14 May 1818 (extract 8). the 1988 IGI was studied for early Nicholas County, Kentucky Allison entires. Many of these were probably descendants of Alexander Allison and his probably brother, John Allison. By 1840, two Allison men were listed on the Nicholas County, Kentucky Census index. They were David and James Allison. They were both living in Carlisle Township. James Allison was probably the one named in this 1840 Census Index. Allison families that were probably brothers or cousins to James Allison were extracted from the 1850 census of Nicholas County, Kentucky. Included were David Allison (extract 4), Mary Allison Snap (extract 8) (K) and Isaac Allison (K).
The 1860 Nicholas County, Kentucky census included D. (David) G. Allison, John Allison and Isaac Allison (extract 5). The marriages of Nicholas County also included many probable Allison relatives (extract 7,8). Further research on the Allison famly to determine the father of James Allison includes the land records of Nicholas County, KY. Also to be searched in the 1820 and 1850 census records could be David Feeback and his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth Allison, believed to be Elizabeth Taylor who married Alexander Allison in 1802. Catherine Mann and Martha E Firth could also be researched next time." Universal Genealogy Center, Kathryn M Harmer, Genealogist."
Per 8/9 1991 report from same genealogist: The probates of Nicholas County, Kentucky, did not include Alexander Allison. One early Allison will was found which led to many records. John "Alison's" will was probated 20 March 1833. His wife, Ruth was named. The Nicholas County deeds included one between the John Alison heirs and David Allen of Montgomery County, Kentucky. In it eight chldren were named with their spouses: James & Naomi Alison, John and Zelinda Alison, Andrew and Elizabeth Alison, Nancy & Joseph Graham, Polly and Robert Allen, Eleanor and Milton Brown, Elizabeth and Alexander Bradshaw, Maria and Samuel Call. Furthe research located at 9th child, Anny Alison, who married Douglas Allen. Most of these couples were not found on the 1850 census of Kentucky or Nicholas county and may have been deceased. This deed eliminated any of the above children as those of Alexander and Elizabeth Allison.
There were only two Allison men in the early Nicholas County, Kentucky records, John and Alexander. John was older than Alexander, but not old enough to be his father. They were very likely relatives.
Data on Alexander Allison was difficult to find in Nicholas County, Kentucky records. Perhaps this was because he was deceased by 1818 when his wife remarried. At any rate, many deeds and other records were found on John Allison, a very probable relative. A most informative Nicholas County, Kentucky pension record was copied (C). It stated: "John Allison applied for Revolutionary War penison on 22 October 1832. He stated that he was born in Rowan County, NC in December 1759. He enlisted in Rowan County, NC in May 1776, moved to Kentucky after the war and had been a neighbor to Benjamin Robinson, of Montgomery County, Kentucky, when he lived in Rowan County, NC."
During the next research period, it is recommended that the remainder of Nicholas County, Kentucky histories, tax lists, etc. be studied for Alexander Allison. We should then study the Allisons in Rowan County, NC.
An LDS entry form was extracted, as the film copy was so poor. Joseph Eubanks Jr., of Maysville, Kentucky, submitted four Allison marriages in 1977 for temple sealings. He claimed a 3rd great-grand-nephew relationship to Mary, Elizabeth, Patsy and Susannah Allison - these were the sisters of James Allison. In order to learn how Joseph Eubanks, Jr. was related to the Allison fmaily, the Ancestral File on computer was searched. A pedigree was produced which included Samuel S Snapp of Nicholas County, KY. Many documents weres tudies for the Allison family. the result of this extensive research was verification that James Allison was the son of Alexander and Elizabeth.
Notes for Elizabeth ?: From Eric Sprouls: "Did you find information that Elizabeth (Taylor) Allison remarried to David Feeback 5/14 1818?

I lost my hard drive and my computer was in the shop for about three weeks and Ive been without E-mail for about 5-6 weeks. Still trying to catch up. My information on the Allison family differs from yours. I am the descendant of Elizabeth Allison b. ca 1807 (according to later census records) married 25 Dec. 1825 to Peter Snapp. He is my great-great grandfather. I have Elizabeth's father as John Allison. His wife is still not certain. A will of a John Allison in Nicholas County signed 1833 gives the wife name as Ruth but does not give the names of their children. I do not have information on your Alexander. But there is a marrage record of an Alexander Allison to the second wife Elizabeth Taylor 2 June 1805 Nicholas Co. KY.
Info on my John children
All marriages from the Nicholas County marriage records. If my information is incorrect, please let me know. I do not have any direct proof that John Allison is Elizabeth's father. This is generally assumed by several researchers I have corresponded with. It is highly likely due to his brother marrying what would be Elizabeth's sister and the large number of marriages between the Snapp's and Mann and Marshall families. Thanks for the information you sent me and I look forward to hearing from you again soon. I promise a prompt reply now my computer is functioning again. I have information on the Mann family but very little on the Marshall family if I can be of help with these. Terry

Per Professional genealogist report provided by Phil Zobrist: Universal Genealogy Center, Kathryn M Harmer, Genealogist. August 9, 1991:
"In a previous report, it was learned that after Alexander Allison's death, his wife remarried. Nicholas County, Kentucky marriages included: 14 May 1818 - David Feeback to Mrs. Elizabeth Allison.
Hoping to learn more about Elizabeth through her second husband, the 1850 census index of Kentucky was researched. There were several Feeback men living in Nicholas County, KY in 1850, but no Davids. Perhaps David and Elizabeth Feeback had moved away by then. It was more likely that they were deceased. The 1820, 1820 and 1840 census indexes of Kentucky also failed to produce David Feeback. As many Nicholas County, KY records were studied for the Allison famly, indexes from 1810 and 1850 were found. These census records were more informative.
In 1820 David Feeback had 4 males under 10, one male 26-45, 2 females 10-16, one female 16-26, and one female 26-45 in his household.
It has been estimated that Mrs. Elizabeth Allison was the mother of 4 daughters and 2 sons by Alexander Allison, whom she married in 1802. Patsy Allison married in 1818, so she would not be counted on the 1820 census. Perhaps David Feeback brought chldren to his marriage to Mrs. Elizabeth Allison or more were brought to their union after 14 May 1818.
As research continued, a fascinating Nicholas County deed was copied: Dated 1 March 1808, it stated that Alexander Allison of Nicholas County, Kentucky made deed for all his property to Elizabeth Taylor, wife of Thomas Taylor, deceased, also of Nicholas County Kentucky. For $600 her made this deed of "gift". The property included: 2 old stud horses, 1 mare colt, 2 feather beds and bedding, all my household furniture, 3 barrels, 1 pott and 1 cover, 1 sugar tug, 1 chest, 2 cows, 1 "yearlin heffer", 15 head of "gees", one "womanz" saddle, 1 talbe, 8 "chairz", 2 bedsteads, 1 ax and one hoe. Why Alexander would sell his property to his wife is not understood or why she would not be mentioned as his wife is a further mystery. Also, when Alexander Allison married Elizabeth Taylor, 2 June 1802, in Nicholas County, Kentucky, no mention was made that she was a widow. It is now known that "Elizabeth" had three husbands at least. They were : (1) Thomas Taylor, (2) Alexander Allison, and (3) David Feeback. Unfortunately, her first marriage to Thomas Taylor occurred before the Nicholas County marriages were available, so her maiden name was not yet know.
Thomas Taylor, first husbad to "Elizabeth" was the verifying link to document Alexander Allison as the father of James Allison and the grandfather to Manuel E Allison. On 1 March 1839, James Allison and his wife, Catherine, for $10.00 deeded 93 acres to Elijah Snap.
Elijah Snap had married Mary Allison on 20 September 1821 and was, therefore, a brother-in-law to James Allison. Even in 1839, $10.00 for 93 acres was a "gift" and suggested close family relationships between the parties involved. Because of woman's rights or the absence thereof in 1839, James Allison could not "give" the property to his sister, Mary, but rather deeded it to her husband, Elijah Snap, and his assigns and heirs, which would include a wife.
Per August 9, 1991 report - "The description of James Allison's property was interesting. It included many trees and a vital statement about "Thomas Taylor's" property line. Thomas Taylor, first husband to James Allison's mother, Elizabeth, was deceased in 1839, but his property may still have been known as his, especially is he had been the owner for a long time. "Thomas Taylor" was the link between James Allison and his father, Alexander Allison.
The probates of Nicholas County, Kentucky, did not include Alexander Allison. One early Allison will was found which led to many records.
John "Alison's" will was probated 20 March 1833. His wife, Ruth was named. The Nicholas County deeds included one between the John Alison heirs and David Allen of Montgomery County, Kentucky. In it eight chldren were named with their spouses:
Notes for Elizabeth Allison: From Eric Sprouls: "Believe now that Elizabeth d/o Alex was not the one who married Teter Snap. He may have had a daughter named Elizabeth, but one who married Teter Snap was d/o John Allison".
Children of Alexander Allison and Elizabeth ? are:

The 1850 Census Index of Kentucky for Alison and Allison was copied. Twenty nine counties were included as homelands for these families. Which one included little Manuel E Allison? The search began and many Allison families were studied. Success was achieved..Living in District #2 of Nicholas County, KY was (K) taken 27 August 1850): Allison, James39b KY Catherine34" Nathaniel17" John A13" Sally11" Watron10" Emanuel8" James6" Reuban4" Mary E.1" This Emmanuel Allison was exactly the right age to be ancestral. In November of 1850 he would have his 9th birthday if the 1900 Census of Hutchinson, Reno, Kansas was accurate. It was exciting to add James Allison and Catharine, his wife, to your pedigree.
From the marriages of Nicholas Co, KY were found two relevant marriages: 10 Jul 1833 James Allison to Katherine Mann 30 Jan 1855 Nathaniel F Allison to Sally Jane Feeback James Allison may have left Nicholas County, KY before 1860 as he was not on the Kentucky 1860 Census Index. Perhaps he moved to Illinois where some records suggest Manuel E Allison was born."
"With remaining research time, a Mann Family History (George Adam Mann 1734-1821) was located. According to the surname index, it included Allison/Ellison persons. This was a gold mine!
Catherine Mann was listed as the wife of James Allison. Her 1833 marriage and 8 children were listed. "Watron" was listed as Marion, a much more likely given name, on this Mann history. The ancestroy of Catherine Mann, according to this excellent history included: (1)John Mann b 1771 (her father) (2)George Adam Mann b 1734 (her grandfather) (3)Jerg Bernhart Mohn b abt 1700 (her great-grandfather) Family group records of these Mann and Mohn families were compiled and the 1988 IGI searched for each person identified.
Future research on this family in Pennsylvania, Virginia and Kentucky, as well as Germany, may provide data on the female lines and futher documentation for the Manns."

Dear Susan, Yes, I did find "proof" that Alexander was married to Elizabeth Taylor daughter of Elizabeth and Thomas Taylor. Also found the will- deed that someone else mentioned. Alexander left everything to his mother -in-law Elizabeth Taylor. Dated 1808, she was a widow. Don't know exactly why. But Elizabeth didn't remarry until 1818 so she and children were taken care of. Will send copy of will-deed and copy of permission for Elizabeth Taylor to marry Alexander Allison signed by parents and witnessed by Josiah and George Taylor. Didn't copy Josiah swearing document to be true- I goofed. Also didn't copy deed-will of Thomas Taylor to son James. But have notes. Didn't realize significance until later. Have notes though and will send copy. Found permission letter in an unindexed file of marriage bonds. Nicholas County. Also wonder if Caleb Taylor who married Elizabeth & Alex was a relative. Looked at some unindexed court records to see if I could find any guardianship records for Alex's children but found none. Doesn't mean they aren't there I just didn't find them. It may be by leaving things through a deed rather than a will it didn't go through the regular court so the children did not require a guardian. Mother's and women didn't count. Need to find someone that could tell us about the laws in KY for that time period.
Marriage bond for John Deag and Elizabeth Allison 1 Aug 1801 John Allison was bondsman. Josiah Taylor marriage bond 3 Aug 1801 Elizabeth Fields. Father William Fields.
