BENJAMIN S. ALLISON, of the law firm of Erskine & Allison, was born in 1854, at Bellefontaine, Ohio, and is the only son of the late C. W. B. Allison, a native of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, who became an eminent attorney, and was for several years partner in the popular law firm of Stanton & Allison in Wheeling.

The grandfather of our subject, was Major William Allison, a native of Ireland, and served in the war of 1812.

Charles W. B. Allison was first married in 1844, to Miss Saphrona Lee, of Marysville, Ohio, who, however, died in 1849. On the 21st of May, 1851 he was married a second time to Miss Mary Stanton, daughter of the Hon. Benjamin Stanton, of Bellefontaine, Ohio, who was mother to the subject of our sketch. His father, C. W. B. Allison, was a self-made man- "one of God's noblemen." He evidenced rare abilities, became a prominent member of the bar, and during the late war, was commissioned by Governor Todd, of the state of Ohio, to the colonelcy of the Eighty-fifth Regiment of O. V. I. In 1862 he was appointed Colonel of Camp Dennison, where he remained in command till his term of three years of service was closed in 1863. He subsequently became a member to the legislature, was chairman of the committee on military affairs, and member of the committee on the judiciary - two of the most important committees of the House. He first came to Wheeling in 1866, and practiced law in the firm of Stanton & Allison, but succumbed to death in 1876, aged fifty-six years.

Benjamin S. Allison, the subject of our sketch, graduated at the University of Wooster, in 1876, and passed through Albany Law School in 1878, being admitted to practice the same year. He subsequently became partner with Mr. W. Erskine, of Wheeling, hence the present law firm of Erskine & Allison, of 1318 Market Street. Mr. Allison is single.
