History of Nemaha County, Kansas By Ralph Tennal

Moses Henton Allison, farmer & stockman, Nemaha township, was born on a farm in McDonough county, Illinois. January 16, 1843, and is a son of Thomas and Martha (Humphrey) Allison, natives of Pennsylvania and Ohio respectively.

Thomas Allison, his father, was born in 1811, in Pennsylvania, a son of William Allison, who married a Miss Haynes, and was of Scotch descent, the family being an old one in America. The Allisons migrated to Illinois and from that State, Thomas Allison migrated to Iowa in an early day, and operated a flouring mill at Council Bluffs, where he died in 1871. Thomas and Martha Allison were the parents of three children, as follows: William, dead; Moses Henton, with whom this review is concerned; Augustav, Coleraine. Minn. The mother of these children was born in 1820, and died at the home of her -son, Moses H.. in 1884. Both parents were members of the Presbyterian church.

Moses H. Allison was educated in the Mt. Pleasant Iowa High School and enlisted in the Third Iowa regiment Artillery at Council Bluffs, Iowa in 1864 but was never engaged in battle.

In 1869, he and his brother, William, inherited 480 acres of land in sections 5, 6, 7 and 8 Nemaha Twp, Nemaha Co, Kansas. He came west to develop his land where he built his home on that part of the tract, lying in section 5, erecting a stone house and other farm buildings.

Mr Allison prospered in Kansas and owned considerable land at one time, but has sold off a part of his holdings; now owning 160 acres. He is an extensive breeder of Shorthorn cattle and has exhibited his fine live stock at the county fairs with great success; has carried away the sweep stake prizes and other secondary awards. He is also a breeder of standard Percheron horses, and takes a just and abiding pride in his fine live stock.

Mr Allison married November 7, 1872 to Miss Emma Berger and to this union have been born three children, namely:
-Roland, a farmer in Nemaha Twp
-Marsh, farming in Nemaha Twp
-Martha, at home with her parents.

Mrs. Allison was born January 30, 1850, in Crawford County, Pennsylvania and is a daughter of Marcus & Emily (Scoville) Berger; natives of New England who immigrated to Kansas in 1870 and settled on a farm in Washington Twp, Nemaha Co, where they died.

Mr. Allison is a member and a supporter of the Nemaha County Fair Association, a Republican in politics, has filled the local offices of road overseer, school director, and township treasurer and is a member of the Farmers' Union.
