Facts and Events
Records regarding John Allison, Jr. are very scarce. He probably migrated to Kentucky with his family after living in Augusta County, VA. He may have been married twice, conflicting accounts on his family. The placement of his children may not be positively established until his marriage dates are determined.
The following entries may give some evidence to his families migration:
