William Allison married Martha "Patsy" Alexander December 27, 1814 in Cabarrus County, NC.  Her parents were Stephen Alexander and Martha "Patsy" Wilson. 

William and Martha supposedly had a son, Stephen Allison, though I've found nothing on him, plus at least two daughters, Anna Sarah (Allison) Alexander and Rebecca Elizabeth (Allison) Cochran.

I don't know how William ties to my Allison ancestors.

David ~

I've done a bit of research on William.  I added his 1850 and 1860 census records to his profile.  Those I am certain of.  He is in Mecklenburg w/ a son W. W. and his daughter Elizabeth just before she married.

As for his origins, I didn't see much.  I was able to find what I believe to be his 1820-1840 census records using info from his profile and the bible transcription on his FAG memorial.  Not enough detail in those.  

In the 1820 census, I believe that is William on page 3.  The only other Allison I see is a William on page 2.  He is living alone and would need to be older to be William's father.  

There was s record of an estate file (below) of a William Allison of Mecklenburg who died in 1815 (no DOB), wife's name Peggy Allison.  The proceedings took place in Charlotte.  Which is where I found William living.  Maybe you can find something in there.
