Researching Allinger and Nelson families of the Columbia River Gorge, namely the John Benjamin and Jennie (GIBBS) Allinger family of Stevenson and the Nels Edward and Harriet (WHITE) Nelson family of Carson, Washington. Also researching the Jones and Wade families of my spouse, namely Harriet (STUART) Jones of Portland, Oregon and Wiley and Josephine (HANSEN) Wade of Colton, Oregon.|

If this is your John Allinger, he was living along the Galena Trail in Buffalo Grove, Jo Daviess County, Illinois in 1831. He apparently came to northwestern Illinois in 1830, stayed for a year, then sold his claim to Samuel Reed, who had migrated up the Trail from Peoria. Given that Allinger was in the lead mine region of Grant County, Wisconsin in 1870, I presume that when he left Buffalo Grove in 1831, he moved further north into the Lead Mine Region. Allinger probably was lured to the area by the opportunity to lay claim to frontier land and to make a profit from his claims. 1826-1831 were the early years of the great Lead Rush, the first mineral rush in American history. The earliest settlers speculated on land while they also hoped to get rich on lead. For those not interested in mining, taverns and ferries were "licenses to make money," and most of their owners made lots of it on land and on improvements catering to the flood of immigration.
I am in the process of updating my Galena Trail website, but if you would like to learn more about the Trail and Lead Mine Region where Allinger spent his time see:
