Hi Jennifer, I am sorry I am so long in answering you re the Allis's. Are you aware of the book entitled "Genealogy of WilliamAllis of Hatfield, Massachusetts and Descendants 1630-1919"? This book has lots of information regarding the Allis family. My husband and I went to the Ft. Wayne Indians Latter Day Saints Library and after finding the book I made a copy, page by page, of it. The library would have made copies and sold it to me for about 60.00 at the time and I paid 25.00 by making my own copy. It is out of date and a few libraries have copies, one being in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Walter's name was Walter William Allis, not Walter Wilcox. He was a son of Winthrop and I am related through both. Walter and Anna had a son named William Ray who married Sybil McClain who were my great-grandparents.
Winthrop was a carpenter. Walter and Anna had twins, Clara and Nellie and Nellie was my grandmother. Their is so much info in the about mentioned book that would enlighten you regarding what the Allis's did for a liviing and what their lives were like. We are related to the Allis-Chalmers Company, their were farmers, teachers, and many other occupations. Hope this helps. You can e-mail me at jane33@att.net if you would like.
