THE DAVIS-ALLISON STUDIES IN TWO VOLUMES

 

VOL. I. THEY SAW AMERICA BORN

Pioneer adventures of the Davis-Allison Family and allied branches in twelve states from Atlantic to Pacific. This book covers the family story completely from 1638-1839. From 1839-1940, a selection has been made in order to feature the pioneer spirit and its outreaches. This selection includes an account of the ninetieth birthday of Mary Allison Davis in 1879, and sixteen individual exploits of her descendants.

VOL. II. GENEALOGY

From the marriage of Nehemiah Davis and Mary Allison in 1805, the record of each of their descendants to 1940 is given as fully as known. Two historical sketches precede: one, the Davis Family from 1638 to 1805 in America; and the second, the Allison Family to 1805. Illustrated.
