Hello. I am looking for any information regarding a marriage of my
gggrandpa_________Jeffcoat marrying a _________Allison.It would of been
1800-1840.... They had at least 3 children : Allison Jeffcoat b,1840,Wes Jeffcoat
Eliza Jeffcoat.We believe they named Allison after his mother's maiden name.
In turn he named his son Allie Allison and so on.....

My ggrandpa Allison Jeffcoat was in 17th Inf Ga in Civil war and married
Cynthia Lindsey abt 1864. They had children Wes,Alfred,Elizabeth,Samuel b.1867
in Ga in and Allie b.1875 in AL. Allison Jeffcoat returned to AL after Civil War and
found his homeburned and his parents dead.He only found a brother and 2 of his
sons alive...

Allison Jeffcoat's mother's maiden name was Allison and was from N.Carolina. His
father last name was Jeffcoat and was probably from SC that later moved to
AL...Allison Jeffcoat's wife Cynthia Lindsey was from Crenshaw Co,AL.But
Cynthia died and so did 3 of their children between 1876-1880..

Allison Jeffcoat then moved to Tyler co,Tx in 1880 and married Martha Middleton
in 1881 and had 11 children....Allison Jeffcoat's brother Wes moved to Jacksonville
FL after Civil War and so did his sister Eliza Jeffcoat.Eliza Jeffcoat married a Henry
Burke...They had a child henry Burke Jr.
Any information,please let me know.
Thank you,

I would be most interested in confirming Ann Allison's parents.
Are you sure Thomas is her father?

Thomas Allison, Jr. and Cassandra Bird were definitely NOT the parents of Ann Allison. There's some confusion here. Thomas abnd Cassandra's children are ID'ed though estate papers.
