William H. Allison, County Recorder and a member of the firm of Allison & McCarty, dealers in dry goods, clothing, boots and shoes, etc., owes his nativity to Cooper County, Missouri, where he was born May 14th, 1842. When he was at the age of 7 years his parents removed to Saline County, Missouri, where they resided till 1853, in that year coming to Henry County. Here William was reared in the occupation of farming, and here he continued to reside till the commencement of the war, when he enlisted, in 1861, in Captain Owens' Company, of the Missouri Stale Guards, serving till their disbandment, six months later. Then he enlisted under Colonel Jackson, and was shortly taken, prisoner by the Federals in Saline County, Missouri, and was held as such in St. Louis, Missouri, Alton, Illinois, and Johnson Island, Ohio, spending in those prisons in all twenty-six months. He was then exchanged, and some time afterward was discharged. Returning to Missouri he spent the winter of 1865 in Saline County. The following spring he went to Montana Territory, and was there engaged in the stock business for three years, when he came back to Clinton, and in 1869 he, with Mr. Terry, embarked in the grocery business. In 1875, closing out his grocery trade, he commenced selling dry goods, and in August, 1882, Mr. McCarty became a member of the firm. In 1882 Mr. A. was elected County Recorder, and entered upon the duties of that office January 1, 1883. He was married November 7th, 1869, to Miss Mollie E. Sparks, of Kentucky. They have three children, Earl, Lester and Frank. He is a member of the Masonic and, also, of the A. O. U. W. fraternities.
