I have a John ALLISON, b. Sep. 5, 1765 in Rockbridge County, VA. He served in the Revolutionary War, then moved to Bourbon County, KY (part of which, including where he lived, later became Nicholas County).

He married ANNA GRAY in 1785. Migrated to Marion County, IN in 1819, where he died in September 1837.

Does this John Allison connect in some way to the Allisons you're researching?

Possibly the same John Allison?

Hello, I saw your GenForm posting of 29 June concerning the John Allison Family. Your son of #2 Charles Allison is John Allison 1765-1837 m. Anna Gray. Have you any other information on these people? My line is Mary Mariah Allison b. 13 July 1802 m. Elijiah Snapp 20 Sept. 1821 in Nicholas Co., Ky I believe her father is named John but do not have her mother's name, however her brother is named David Gray Allison, so I'm wondering if the mother is the Anna Gray you have listed with John Allison 1765-1837? Information I have about John Allison I took from " History of Nicholas County" lists his wife as unknown and his father as David Allison from Scotland. Also lists his birthdate as Dec 1759 b. in Rowan Co. NC & he enlisted in Rev. War from that county and moved to Nicholas Co., Ky after the war, applied for a pension 22 Oct. 1832. Don't know if this could be same line as your John & Anna Gray, but the Gray caught my attention, due to the brother's middle name. You list your Charles b. Abt. 1737 Pa-d. 1787 Bourbon Co., Ky. Nicholas Co. adjoins Bourbon Co. Do you think there is a connection here?? Other similarity is about the building of water mill. My John Allison built a water mill in 1802 over Johnson's Fork of Licking River, I saw that in your posting as well abt. a James in 1746, just thought that curious as well. Any information on your John & Anna Gray appreciated. Regards, Jean
