Reuben Allison married Louisiana King 07 Jul 1836 in Greene, GA.

Alfred Allison est. birth year 1820, GA. In the 1870 US Census, he was 50 yrs old, living in GA. Also at the same residence ws James Ellis, 108y, Chana Allison 35, and Benjamin Allison, 17y. All were born in GA except James Ellis was born in VA.

How are  Alfred Allison and Reuben Allison related?

I am really looking for Reuben's family i.e. parents, siblings. He is my husbands ggg father. The alfred I am seeking info about had land in 1821 lottery, died 1835 Greene. Really wondered if they were related as Reuben named first son Alfred. I have really hit a brick wall here. Also in area were David, Gwynn, and Robert who some say might be related. If you know anything, thanks!
If Reuben Allison married Louisiana King in Greene, GA, it looks like that couple moved to Alabama because the US Census for 1870 shows Reuben 62y and Louisanna 52y in Alabama with son, William 30y.

The 1870 Census shows Alfred Allison 32y, born GA and wife Martha 30y, both living in AL. They have a daughter, Lavina 9y, and three sons, Paul 4y, Gilmer, 2y and Charles 8 months.

The 1880 US Census for Auburn, Lee, Alabama shows Alfred A. Alliison 42y, wife and children are the same as in 1870 with two additions, Felix 5y and Edgar G. 2. Alfred's occupation is farmer.

Does this look like the Alfred who is Reuben's son? Do you think that Reuben Allison's parents might be buried in a Greene County Cemetery?
All that info is correct. My problem is who are Reuben's  parents? And who is alfred who died in 1835 in Greene, Georgia?. Georgia Pioneers has a will for a Alfred Allison but do I want to spend the money and find it is a different Alfred...I suppose his parents could be buried there but maybe not. Reuben was born around 1808 +- in georgia.
Before 3 Feb 1786, Washington County, GA was much bigger than it is now and there was no Greene County, GA until 2 Feb 1786.

This might possibly be useful information as you trace the Allison line back by generations. I don't know what the next step could be, but maybe another way to trace back will work out.

I lived in GA for a short time when my dad was stationed there during WWII.

Thanks for your comments. Will add Washington county to my list of places.
That Alfred Allison is Reuben's brother, as are the David, Gwynn, and Robert that you mentioned.

I'm still working on who their parents were. One lead I have is a John Allison, d. 1822 Wilkes Co, Georgia--but I'm not 100% sure that's correct.

Reuben was my gggg Grandfather.
I did find Alfred’s will which proves that his brothers were Robert, David, John, Alexander, William, Jesse, Gwynn, and Reuben. There were noj girls mentioned which makes me wonder about John d.1822 in Wilkes county. I too am still hunting the parents.
