Allred Family

I'm VERY grateful to Linda Allred Cooper for information on this family, and for everything she does for Allred researchers.

The brothers Thomas, John and Solomon Allred settled in what is now Randolph Co. NC in the 1750s. They are thought to be the sons of a Solomon Allred who immigrated from Eccles Parish, Lancaster, England, in the early 1700s, but solid proof is lacking.

First Generation

See the Allred Family Association site for more information on Thomas, including a copy of his will.

The will and deed records name Thomas Allred's wife as Elizabeth. Her maiden name is uncertain.

Elias Allred (1758-after 1840) m. Mary Rigsby

Elias served in the Revolution from North Carolina. He remained in Randolph County until about 1815, when he and Polly and some of their children moved to South Carolina. From there they went on to Hall Co. GA.

Elias and Polly's son Thomas Allred remained in North Carolina, and was living in Chatham Co. NC in 1850.

For more information on Elias and Polly, see the Allred Family Association site. I have taken the names of their children from material on this site.
