Rocky Mountain Allreds

Dawnell Hatton Griffin is finishing a book on the Allred family which is intended to be the definitive book on the Allred family and is based on Dawnell’s more than 40 years of research. It traces our ancestors from their earliest recorded events in England in the early 1500s to Solomon Allred’s immigration to Pennsylvania in the early 1700s. It follows the family from Pennsylvania, to Maryland and Virginia and eventually to the settlement of three of Solomon’s sons and and his grandson in North Carolina in the 1750s. The book corrects much of the mis-information that is found in current genealogy on our family. It identifies new and previously unknown relationships. It traces all of the known families into the early 1800s. The book is intended to spur further research on the family and is heavily documented with sources that will enable researchers to continue research on the family. The book will be a hard cover book printed on acid free paper. Dawnell hopes to have the book ready for purchase for Christmas. If you wish to sign up to purchase the book when it is available, please send an email to Keith Allred at and he will put you on the list of possible purchasers. He will notify those on this list when the book is available for purchase and give pricing and other details so that those who wish a copy can place an order.

Genealogy Quote

"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we have come from."
