      DEED: Deed Book 1 - p. 61 - 4 Aug 1789 - Indenture - William Moore, Washington Co., NC and Robert Allison, 100 pounds pd, tr on E side dry fork of Meadow Creek and adj Benjamin Crow, being 300 acres granted Moore, No. 544, 20 Sep 1787. Wit: Richard Wood, George Gillaspie. Reg. 15 Sep 1789

      NOTE: The above two deeds recorded from Washington Co and Greene Co NC date from the time before the establishment of Tennessee. Hence,their being located in NC. Moreover, there has been some controversy over the identity of Alexander / William Moore. I believe that the fact that two deeds registered on the same day showing different names for William and Alexander show that these two are different people.,probably brother rather than father and son, as some have suggested.

  • Notes 
    • Based on the Uriah Allison / Nancy Cox book, it would be worthwhile to look closely at the Robert Allison facts, to separate out which are this Robert Allison, and which might be one of the other *three* Robert Allisons in the same place and time.

      SDAR-PATRIOT: Pvt, TN

      Ordered that Robert ALLISON be overseer of the Public Road from PRIGMOORES Ferry to Muddy Creek & that Isham COX esquire Appoint the hands to work thereon. - Roane Co., Tennessee Road Orders

      Some sources claim his birth and death as 1750 in Chester Co., NC and 1820 in Greene Co., TN. But better documented sources show otherwise.

      Robert fought in the Revolution and was in the battle of King's Mountain.

      It appears that there are two different Robert Allisons in the Greene County / Roane County area of Tennessee after the Revolution. One Robert appears to be older than this one, but it's not really easy to separate them.

      DEED: Deed Book 2 - p. 231 - Sheriff's Deed - 24 July 1811 - Daniel Guin, Shff, one part, and Robert Allison, Junr, and Jonathan Baracraft, both of Washington Co., TN, other part, and that whereas sd Robert Allison, Senr, for use of Nathaniel Shipley, recovered judgment against Thomas Gillis, and there was levied on 420 acres(tract where Gillis then lived) a judgment, $500 was pd, tr being on Mill fork of Big Limestone adj Daniel Kennedy's former line and John Coffman corner. Wit: Samuel Powel, Joseph Hamilton. Reg 30 Sep 1811 (I believe these two Robert Allisons cited to be other than this line)
