Surnames: Allison
We are searching for the family of our great grandfather, John R. Allison b. 1844 or 45 in PA by his account on the 1880 US census. John R. probably came to Texas sometime after 1870. According to 1880 US census he’s living in Precinct 5 of Wood Co., Texas with wife Mary Catherine (Evans) and baby, Annie B. Allison. In 1892 he is postmaster in Hawkins,TX.We have found no record of him after this.

What we would like to find is confirmation of his life previous to this and to know who his parents were. We have found a John R. Allison with a matching birthdate in the 1850 and 1870 US censuses of Greencastle, Franklin, PA and some military records indicating he was at Big Wichita, Texas.
