Providence, R. I., in 1777, and had charge of a small parish
in Bordentown, N. J., where he established a classical board-
ing-school, which attained great repute. In 1796, he gave
his attention to inventions, and several improvements in the
steam engine, and its application to navigation are due to his
efforts. " In 1801, he resumed his school, and soon afterward
his pastorate, but ill health compelled him to relinquish both.
In 1816, he was elected chaplain of the house of representatives,
and later became chaplain of the navy yard at Washington,
D. C, where he remained till his death. He was at one time
one of the secretaries of the American Philosophical society,
and was a constant contributor to periodical literature."

1002. Joseph Allison 3  (William,2 Johni). He was
born in Drumnaha, near Limavady, Ireland, about 1720, and
when he reached manhood's estate, he rented a farm belonging
to a London corporation, paying yearly rates, which were col-
lected by an agent in Ireland. On one of these visits of the
agent he was invited by Mr. Allison to dine with him. The
best the house afforded was given to him as an honored
guest. On that day silver spoons v/ere used. Turning to
Mr. Allison the agent said, —
"I see that you can afford to have silver on your table. If
you can afford this, you can afford to pay more rent. Your
next year's rent will be increased."
"I will pay no more rent," said Allison. "I will go to
The agent increased the rent, which Mr. Allison would not
pay. He sold all his property, and, with his family and six
children, in 1769 left the home of his fathers and the graves
of his kindred, and embarked from Londonderry for the New
World, intending to land at Philadelphia. He had relatives
in Pennsylvania with whom he had corresponded, who had
urged him to come to them in that state and bring his family.
Their names were Pollock, the children of Mrs. Allison by
her first marriage; they settled in Pennsylvania about 176(5.
Their passage was rough, and the vessel was wrecked on
Sable Island, and he and his famil}^ were taken to Halifax,
Nova Scotia. It was then diJfticult and expensive to journey
from one section of the country to another. A few years
previous to the arrival of Mr. Allison in Halifax, the French
people had been most cruelly expelled from their Acadian
homes, and their lands thrown open to settlement. Through
the persuasion of Admiral Cochrane, then admiral on that

the authorities, these sturdy people of Scotch blood were in-
duced to go in and occupy. Of those who came with the
Allisons, the McHeffys settled in Falmouth, N. S., the Ma-
gees in Aylesford, the McCormicks in Annapolis, and Mr.
Allison purchased a farm in Horton, Kings county. Nova
Scotia, on the border of the historic Grand Pre, where he
lived till his death in 1794. He was a Presbyterian, though
many of his descendants have departed from the ancient faith,
and belong to other denominations. He married in Limav-
ady, county of Londonderry, Ireland, Mrs. Alice Polk (or
Pollock) Caldwell, who survived him for several years. She
gave the historic silver spoons to her youngest child, a
daughter who lived to be ninety years old. They are now in
the possession of her great-grandson, Hon. Leonard Shannon,
of Halifax, N. S.
