Grandfather of President William McKinley.
1-24-2015: We now have DNA evidence that Abner Allison was not related to Gavin Allison.
It is difficult to determine where Abner was born as the boundary lines in SW Pennsylvania changed from VA to PA and the county lines kept changing.
Abner moved from the Carmichaels area of Greene Co PA to New Lisbon OH in 1807.
War of 1812 veteran; Capt Daniel Harbaugh's Co of light dragoons, Columbiana Co OH
Father of Nancy Campbell Allison, who was the mother of President William McKinley.
Wife: Anne Campbell (buried at Niles City Cemetery) The historical society has preserved her original marker at the museum and replaced it with a new marker in the cemetery.
Occ: farmer, later managed a hotel in Lisbon
Abner Allison is my 4th great grandfather.
Abner Allison's house built in 1808 still stands? in Lisbon OH. Opposite the grand stand of the baseball park on East Walnut St, is the childhood home of Nancy Allison McKinley.
The original log frame is now covered with weather boarding, but the house is as it was in 1808. (Another descendant reports that the house has been torn down)
I am a certified descendant of Abner Allison. (Janet LaMotte)
