Looking for information about the James R and Cora Belle Buchanan Allison Family.

+1 vote


My name is Kathy Allison Burton Pennington. I am researching my father's family - Allison - of which I know vey little. I have found some information based on his and my mother's marriage record but I never knew him or his family. Needless to say  this has been a long and difficult road. 

The information I have is as follows: (this info is based on the LDS database info as well as my parents's marriage record).

William Allison (b. 11-11-1929 Warren Co., OH) son of Clarence E Allison (b.3-11-1885 Warren Co., OH) and Florence Bennett Thompson (b.1-23-1896 Moscow, Milroy, IND). William married Ruth Lewis in Hyden, Leslie Co. Ky on November 13 1951. 

Clarence - son of James R Allison (b abt 1862) and Cora Belle Buchanan (b.abt 1866). James R and Cora Belle were married March 20 1883 Warren Co., OH.

Florence - daughter of William R Bennett and Amanada Thompson.  Florence was married and widowed prior to marrying Clarence.  Florence died May 26 1946 (Ohio Deaths 1908-1953)

Clarence and Florence were married July 31, 1918 in Warren Co., OH, Warren County Marriage Records, 1913-1918, Vol 9, Image 285

I am looking for information about James, Cora, and of course Clarence and Florence and their families.  Any help you can lend would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, 

Kathy Allison Penington

Cora Belle was the child of Thomas Buchanon and Sara Jane Wolfe. Lots of siblings on familysearch.org. Viewing their records may hold more clues, didn't open them all.
