Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 14, 1844
Greene County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jan. 5, 1923
Greene County
Pennsylvania, USA

Almira Jane -- called "Alice" -- was the seventh of ten children of James Allum, 1812-1850, and Evaline Gregory, 1808-1873. Born in October, 1844, Alice had not attained the age of six when her father died in February, 1850 ("Killed by a threshing machine" --HISTORY OF GREENE COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA by Samuel P. Bates, Nelson, Rishforth & Co, Chicago, 1888, page 648). Unexpectedly widowed, Alice's mother became the provider for children ages eighteen to less than one year.

Three relationships are documented for Alice, who is known to have spent most of her life in Greene County, Pennsylvania. Two were with William David McClelland, 1834-1907, and John Jackson Cummins, 1827-1896.

William David McClelland was a son of farmer Ephraim McClelland, 1805-1875, and Margaret Seals, 1807-1881. (Ephraim and Margaret are in South Ten Mile Cemetery, Center Township, Greene County, PA, as is their son William.)

John Jackson Cummins (called "Jackson" and "J. J.") was a son of shoemaker John Cummins, 1795-1856, and Agnes "Nancy" Teagarden, 1796-1880. (John and Nancy are in Teagarden Cemetery in Greene County, PA.)

Alice -- widowed in 1896 -- lived in the household of her son, Charles Harrison Allum, for more than twenty years before her death in 1923.
