Fayette County Genealogy Project

JAMES ALLISON, honest, frank and fearless, served as postmaster and justice of the peace at Searights, and was county commissioner from 1837 to 1840. His life is well worthy of imitation. It was straightforward, unfaltering, uncheckered and uneventful. He was born near Laurel Hill, December 22, 1801, and passed to rest July 4, 1881. He was senior warden of Grace church, Menallen, for many years and died enjoying the confidence and commanding the respect of all who knew him. He was a remarkable man whose veracity was never doubted or questioned during his whole lifetime.
