CHILDREN OF MARY SMITH AND SAMUEL ALLISON

CHILDREN OF MARY SMITH AND SAMUEL ALLISON

On Pg. 8 of Samuel Stelle Smith's book he states that Mary SMITH and Samuel ALLISON had one daughter.  That is incorrect!  They had 5 children that reached adulthood.  Others I am not sure of. 

 Their children were:

 1) Sarah ALLISON b. Sept. 3, 1776 married James VANDERPOOL (this info is correct)

 2.  Mary (Polly) ALLISON b. 1778 d.
