6 — Sarah Thomson, born , 1748; died Jan. 3, 1814, aged 66 years;

buried with her husband at Brown's Mills, in what was then Mifflin and
is now Juniata County, Pa. Married on June 30, 1772, William Mc-

Alister (born , 1745; died July 7, 1819, aged 74 years), son

of Hugh McAlister, Scotch Protestant who married a Miss Harbison
and emigrated from the north of Ireland to this country, settling first
in Lancaster County and later in what is now Perry County, Pa., where
he died in 1769 — see 3, 44, and 56. At the age of 18 years in July, 1763
he was one of a party of twelve who pursued and fought a band of
twenty-five Indians who invaded Tuscarora Valley — see "History of
Juniata and Susquehanna Valleys in Pennsylvania," p. 75- On page 835
it is stated that "William McAlister, with his older brother Hugh and
others returned to Juniata Valley after the Indian troubles had ceased
in 1766 and he settled on a tract at the head of the Cocolamus which was
taken up by John Gallagher, June 4, 1762. On (Aug. 13,) 1766 he pur-
chased and (on Oct. 29, 1766) he obtained an order of survey for a
(107-acrc) tract called the 'Addition' (in Fermanagh and Greenwood
Township, Mifflin County, Pa., for which the warrant of acceptance was
issued on Nov. 11, 1790). In 1812 he obtained a warrant for 73 acres
south and west. He also purchased other tracts of land in the neighbor-
hood. On the Gallagher tract he settled, and, on June 30, 1772, married
Sarah Thompson. He joined Captain John Hamilton's Company during
the Revolution. Before leaving home he made his will, dated Dec. 21, 1776,
leaving his estate to his wife Sarah, and only son Hugh (61) then three
years old. He went to the army and returned in safety. He cut his
name out of the will he had written with his own hand. It is now in
the possession of his grandson John B. McAlister (624). He was
one of the party who gathered May 21, 1780 to organize to protect
the frontier. In 1789 he built at the place now known as Brown's Mills,
a grist-mill, saw-mill and distillery, and in 1790 was assessed on 150 acres
of land, the mills, distillery and a slave. He lived at the farm until his
death July 7, 1819, aged 74 years ; his wife, Sarah, had died a few years
previous. The grist-mill was burned in later years and rebuilt by John
McAlister (63). It was about one mile below the Mansion House, and
later was sold by the McAlisters to the Stitzer Brothers (632) who sold
the property to Peter Brown. William McAlister built a fulling-mill on
the main road, at what is now Cocolamus, in 1814, which was completed,
however, by his son William (62), who fitted it up for fulling and put in
carding machines. The mill was torn down in 1848 and a tannery built
which was run by John McAlister until 1862." As a result of the labors
of Mrs. Henrietta (McAlister) Baldwin (3452), who is doubly related
to the descendants of William and Sarah (Thompson) McAlister, al-
though not herself a descendant, there has been collected a complete



178 DESCENDANTS OF JOHN THOMSON

record of William McAlister's Revolutionary Service, and as a result of
the labors of Miss Jane Elliott McAlister a relative but not a descendant,
much information has been collected concerning the descendants. The
will made by William McAlister prior to going to war is now in the
possession of the family of John Edmund Jamison (6441). It bears the
date of Dec, 1776 in which month the company under Captain John
Hamilton was raised in and left Lost Creek Valley. On pp. 248, 249,
Penn. Archives, Fifth Series, Vol. VI., appear the names of William
McAlister and his brother Hugh, as members of the Associators and
Militia, County of Cumberland, Fourth Battalion, in service Jan., 1778.
In Jan., 1779 their names appear on the muster roll of Capt. James
Gibson's Company of Militia of the Fourth Battalion of Cumberland
County, commanded by Col. James Wilson — see Penn. Archives, Fifth
Series, Vol. VI, pp. 259 and 243. He was a member of Capt. Hugh
McAlister's Company, Seventh Battalion, Cumberland County Militia,
commanded by Col. Purdy, May i, 1780 — Fifth Series, Vol. VI, p. 478
also pp. 483, 484. His name appears on the pay roll of Capt. Daniel
McClellan's Company of Cumberland County Associators and Militia in
service from Sept. i, 1780 to Nov. 2, 1780 — Vol. VI, Fifth Series, pp. 614,
619 also pp. 471, 472. William McAlister received depreciation pay for
service in the Cumberland County Militia — Vol. IV, Fifth Series, p. 294.
The descendants of William McAlister are eligible to membership in the
"Sons of the Revolution" or the "Daughters of the Revolution." In his
last will, dated May 31, 1819 in Greenwood Township, Mifflin County,
Pa., William McAlister makes no mention of the only persons referred
to in his earlier will, namely, his wife and son Hugh, both of whom
had died before the later date. He devises to his sons John, son William,
son Robert H., grandson William Harrison McAlister, son John's chil-
dren, grandson William son of Isaac, son Isaac's children ; grandson Wil-
liam Bell son of daughter Mary; sons William John and Robert; children
William, John, Isaac and Mary who married Thomas Bell. He appointed
his "sons William and John, both of Greenwood Township" his executors
with David Boal (7) and Robert Thompson (3) as arbitrators in case
of dispute. The children of William and Sarah (Thomson) McAlister
were (i) Hugh, (2) William, (3) John, (4) Isaac Thompson, (5) Mary,
