John, age 77, appears in the 1850 Kanawha census with Samuel.
Also in Kanawha Wills, 1853-1854, Book S, page 28.... John gives to Samuel, his son, for taking care of him.. also mentions 2 oldest sons, John Wesley Ellison and Lewis Delaney Ellison.
In further research, I have found a record of John Ellison - md
Nancy Cummins Nancy had a father and brother both named Charles.
In Morgantown this past summer I copied almost all of the land grant
information from their records verifying that John Allison was granted 22,000 acres, evidently for military services rendered.. most of the land was from the "Borden" land.
This John Ellison/Allison is not of the "Farley's Fort" Ellison's..
unless he may be a cousin to one of the early settler's of Farley Fort area. He did not locate close to them...
Referring to two volumes of research sent to me by Salt Lake
Researchers, they state that John born 1773 is the son of a John also... then by using wills, they state that John (elder) is the son of a Robert and a Hannah McClure, but they needed to do more research.
