Allison Family Project

One of my favorite ancestors, Lucius Quincis Cincinnatus McCURDY, is listed in the 18__ Civil War Index as the son of Joshua McCurdy and Elizabeth Patience ALLISON. My research in Marietta, Washington County, OH, at the Campus Martius Museum led me to find the handwritten manuscript of The Allison Papers, by William Wallace Allison. This work is remarkable in that it was accumulated circa 1900-1930. It contains very valuable first-hand information about hundreds of descendants of "Short" Robert Allison.

In 1994, while in law school in Boston, I spent what little free time I had doing research at the New England Historical and Genealogic Society (NEHGS) on Newbury Street. There I had the pleasure of working on many of my lines, tracing their migration back East from the Ohio Valley. One winter afternoon, I was asked by one of the research librarians if I had checked the manuscript card catalogue to see if there were any works that might be of interest to me. "How stupid," I remember thinking, "no one will have already researched one of my families!" But I did look. I'm forever grateful that I did.

I found an absolute genealogical bonanza. At the time of the Second World War, Professor Dora Wilhelmina Davis Farrington authored a multi-volume manuscript of the Davis/Allison allied families. After a futile attempt to subscribe enough family to publish the genealogy, she published a narrative history entitled They Saw America Born. Independent of the work of W.W. Allison, Professor Farrington's genealogical compilation is phenomenal. Taken together, these two treasures represent a pillar of research for those with an interest in these families.

It is a life project of mine to complete the descendants of Short Robert Allison as best as possible. For that reason, I encourage anyone with Allison relatives who may have come through Ohio in the early 19th century to contact me.

As space and time permit, I will be placing the entire collection of Allison family materials online.


Another of my favorite relatives is Eddy BURCH, a Revolutionary War soldier whose family originally came from Massachusetts in the mid 1600s, and later Stonington, Connecticut. Eddy migrated with his family north to Hartford and Quechee, Windsor County, Vermont, and later westward. Eddy settled in Aurelius Township, Washington County, Ohio.

I am indebted to the Burch family mailing list moderated by W. David Samuelson for inspiring more aggressive research on the Burch family. I have had the pleasure of meeting cousins online and continue to learn more about the tremendous sweep of history Benjamin and Eddy saw in their lifetimes.
