~MY ANCESTOR~ John Alling was the son of ROGER ALLING and his wife, MARY (NASH) ALLING. He became a freeman of New Haven Oct. 1669.
He was trained in the trade of blacksmith, but became active in civil affairs. Between 1704 and 1714, he was appointed and reappointed by the Assembly as the Probate Judge of New have. He served as treasurer of Yale University from 1702 until his death in 1717. Judge John Alling united over 70 couples in marriage. He served on the Governor's Council and was a part of the Governor's staff for a time.

He was elected Deputy or Representative to the Assemby in Hartford for 20 terms. He signed his name as John Allen until 1701 when he first spelled his last name Alling. He is not "John Allyn" of Hartford. They are two different people.

John married SUSANNA COE on 11 Jan 1671 in New Haven. They were the parents of nine children:
1. Abigail Alling, b. Nov. 23, 1673; d. March 8, 1739; m. Dea. John Punderson on Aug. 3, 1699
2. Susanna Alling, b. March 16, 1676; d. Oct. 1683
3. Hannah Alling, b. May 23, 1678; d. Dec. 9, 1725; m. Capt. Francis Brown on April 11, 1705.
4. Mary Alling, b. Sept. 14, 1680, d. 1759; m. April 11, 1705 Stephen Whitehead.
5. JONATHAN ALLING, b. Oct. 13, 1683; d. June 13, 1775; m. Oct. 1, 1713 Sarah Sacket
6. Sarah Alling, b. Aug. 29, 1685; d. May 4, 1765; m. Dea. Jonathan Mansfield June 1, 1708.
7. Ebenezer Alling, b Nov. 22, 1687; d. Sept. 18, 1734, m. Jan. 5, 1716 Mary (Mercy) Mix.
8. Stephen Alling b. March 4, 1689; d. 1717; m. Oct. 27, 1715, Mary Trobridge.
9. Susanna Alling, b. Oct. 3, 1693; d. Oct. 18, 1776; m. Oct. 6, 1715 Capt. John White.

His tombstone was not found along the wall of the Grove Street Cemetery in 2003 or it was unreadable. "Inscriptions on Tombstones in New Haven prior to 1800" states that his tombstone is along Cedar Ave., Lot 52, but I could not find it there either.
