The book "History of Daviess County, Indiana", published in 1915, has a biography of his grandson Isaac Allison which provides some information about his family:
" Mary (Carroll) Allison, who was the mother of Isaac Allison, was the daughter of Dickson and Leutitia (May) Carroll, both of whom were natives of North Carolina, and who were married there. They came to Indiana in 1837, with five children, and located near Washington township. A short time later they purchased a farm in Veale township, where Owen Allison now lives. They owned one hundred and sixty acres there, only a little of which was cleared when it was purchased from a man who had entered it from the government. Dickson Carroll's sons, Nathaniel, William, John, Robert and Dickson, all served in the Civil War and all survived this war. Another son, Rufus, paid a substitute to go in his place."
Census information supports this. Dixon Carroll is on the 1830 census in Orange County, North Carolina. The submitter has had difficulty finding him on the 1840 census, but on the 1850 and 1860 census, his family was living in Veale Township.
