I'm inclined to believe the surname was Ellis. I have a number of Kentucky Allises I can't seem to connect to the main Allis family genealogy. There a fair number of Ellises which are definitely related to the Allises. I've proven a number changed their name to Ellis and sometimes changed it back later. Who knows why? This would be the firswt known instance of a change to Allis that wasn't originally an Allis. By far there are more people with the Ellis surname than the Allis surname. Phoenetically they sound very similar, which provides for the easy confusion. If you get any furhter information on this I'd appreciate knowing if they are indeed related to the Allises.
