George W. Allison was born in May, 1840 in Ohio and died on April 18, 1917 in Allen County, Ohio.

He first married Mary Mills on November 18, 1860 in Allen County, Ohio.  Their children were William Henry Allison (1860-1940) and John Allison (1862-____).

Mary Mills Allison died in 1871.  In 1883, George married Rebecca Bryan Wade (1849-1924), widow of Thomas C. Wade (1840-1882) in Ohio.  Rebecca had five children by her first marriage and, after marrying George, had two more children, Rush N. Allison (1884-1959) and Nora Allison (1885-____).

George was with the 50th Ohio Infantry following Hood northward through Tennessee when the 50th merged with the 99th Ohio Infantry at Duck River, Columbia, Tennessee on December 31, 1864.  His Civil War Pension document shows that he served with both regiments and has Rebecca Allison as his beneficiary.
