Welcome To The

Indiana Page

Hi!  I'm Debbie and although I live in Michigan, my roots are in North Carolina.  I'm an Allred two different ways, descending from both William and John.  William received his first land grant in NC in 1753 and John received his first in 1755.  John's grand-daughter, Patience Julian, married William's son who was also named William.   William and Patience's grand daughter, Susannah "Susan" Caroline Allred, married Henry Harrison Lassiter.  They were my Great Grandparents.
Confused yet?  Imagine how I felt as I was researching my family tree some 20 years ago! 

Most of my research has been concentrated in Indiana and North Carolina as I worked on my branch of the family.  But along the way I've managed to collect some information on other branches of the family who moved to the Indiana from North Carolina. 

I'll be glad to share what I have and offer aid with your research in the North Central States if possible.  I'm also very interested in collecting more information, documentation, photos, and other Allred research information and appreciate any contributions you might have. 

Just click on my name to send e-mail to me.  I look forward to swapping information with you!                           


Research Tip:  A good place to research the Allreds that came to Indiana in the mid 1800's is the Indiana Room of the Huntington City - Township Public Library, 200 W. Market St., Huntington IN. 46750-2655.  Huntington County has a web site at Click libraries to find a list of what they have.
