John Allgire Genealogy

After extensive research prior to this publication in land deeds, wills, tax assessments, census records, contact with other genealogists and many family members, the follow­ing genealogy was formed - especially tracing the lines that continued to live nearby or be members at Brown's Meeting House to the present. The children listed are not necessarily in order of birth and children who died young are not always listed. More information on the John Allgire family can be found in this book.
