(born Feb. 11, 1819, at Millerstown, Pa.; died Feb. 3, 1902 at "Rose
Dale") daughter of Abraham and Lydia (Miller) Addams of Millers-
town, Perry County, Pa. — see pamphlet on "Eightieth Anniversary of
Lydia Miller (Addams) McAllister" and "In Memorian— Lydia Miller
(Addams) McAllister," by j. Gray McAllister. The ancestor of the
present America family of Addams (name originally spelled Adams)
came to this country from England about 200 years ago and acquired
ownership of land in Pennsylvania. The records show that on Dec.
22, 1681, William Penn deeded 500 acres in the Province of Pennsyl-
vania to "Robert Adams of Ledwell in Oxfordshire, England." (The

name was spelled Addams on the map of the territory*.) The will of
Robert Adams, dated July 2-], 1717 and probated June 6, 1719 refers
to his nephew Richard Adams. Richard Adams was a son of John
Adams, who was living in 1717. In the will of Richard Adams of
what was then Philadelphia County, but is now Montgomery County,
Pa., dated Feb. i, 1747-8, and probated March 24, 1747-8, mention
was made of ten children including William, who was referred to
in the papers of the executors as of Brecknock Township, Lancaster
County, Pa. This son William Adams founded Adamstown in Lancas-
ter County, Pa., in 1761. He married Anna Lane, a daughter of Ed-
ward and Ann (Richardson) Lane. Edward Lane was an Englishman
who came from Jamaica in 1684 and purchased on Dec. 12, 1698-9, 25,-
000 acres from Thomas Fairman which was confirmed to him by patent
in 1 701 by William Pcnn. When he died in 1710, leaving seven children
including William and Ann — not then married — his son William be-
came owner of that part of the property lying east of the Perkiomen,
218 acres of which he deeded to Richard Adams on Feb. 9, 1722. The
youngest son of William and Anna (Lane) Adams was Issac Addams
(the additional having been reinserted, it is said, to distinguish him
from a cousin of the same name), who married Barbara Ruth, daugh-
ter of Peter (died Sept., 1771) and Catherine Ruth, of German an-
cestry. Isaac Addams was captain of the Fourth Company of Asso-
ciators in the Ninth Battalion under Col. John Huber. The youngest
of the six sons of Isaac and Barbara (Ruth) Addams was Abraham
Addams. As a young man he was a merchant in Reading, Pa. He
moved, about 181 1, to Perry County, Pa., and bought the land on
which Millcrstown is built. He was a member of one of the most
important courts of the State. He was thrice married. First, to Lydia,
daughter of Jacob and Elizabeth (Feather) Miller, of Reading. Eliza-
beth Feather was the daughter of Peter and Marie (Levan) Feather,
granddaughter of Isaac and Mary Margaret Levan and great-grand-
daughter of Daniel and Marie (Beau) Levan, Huguenots who fled from
France to Amsterdam, Holland, and subsequently, in 1715, came to
America and settled in Exeter Township, Berks County, Pa. See "The
Addams Family in America," "The Ruth Family" and "The Levan
Family," by Addams S. McAllister. After his marriage to Lydia M.
Addams, Thompson McAllister moved to the farm "Spring Dale," in
Franklin County, Pa., seven miles from Chambersburg, later deeded to
him by his father. He was elected member of the Pennsylvania Legis-
lature in 1847. He moved to Covington, Va., in Dec, 1849 having pur-
chased a 2,200-acre tract and built "Rosedale" the Virginia homestead
in 1856-7. He and his younger brother Robert — 345 — spent much time
together "studying military tactics, were always connected with military
companies, and were both fond of drilling." Thompson formed, and
was made captain of an artillery company near the homestead in Juni-
ata County, and after removal to Franklin County was (in 1846) cap-
tain of an artillery company there. At the outbreak of the Civil War

the brothers, under the firm name of T. McAlHster & Co., were building
the approach to Lewis tunnel (section i8 on what was then the Coving-
ton & Ohio, now the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad) between Lewis
and Alleghany tunnels on the crest of the Alleghanies, Thompson being
in charge of the work. In March, 1861, Thompson raised and at his
own expense, largely equipped the first volunteer company, for the im-
pending war, in Alleghany County or in that part of Virginia ; and was
made its captain. This company, organized and drilled for the purpose
of being placed at the disposal of Virginia, whatever side the State
might espouse, became Company A, Twenty-seventh Infantry, of the
original "Stonewall Brigade"; Captain McAllister was the oldest (and
his son William the youngest) member of the company. At the First
Manassas battle both were wounded. His favorite brother and business
associate. Colonel (afterwards General) Robert McAllister commanded
the First New Jersey in the same battle, one of two regiments (First
and Second New Jersey) that threw their columns across the road
at Centerville and finally arrested the retreat that the Stonewall Bri-
gade, more than any other, had brought to pass. (See "Sketch of
Captain Thompson McAllister," by J. Gray McAllister). Camp fever
and large, unsettled business interests necessitated, in August, 1861,
the resignation of his command (furlough being denied). In the fall
of 1861 he was placed in command of all the home-guards and reserves
in the Alleghany section, continuing in this service throughout the
Civil War. He was for many years an elder of the Covington Pres-
byterian Church. Children of Thompson and Lydia M. (Addams)
