* The McAllasters of America*

Updated June 29, 2009


Richard McAllaster, his wife, Ann (Miller)and their two
small sons arrived in America in 1739. Their son Archibald
was about two years old the winter of 1738-39 when they
left Ireland. Their other son, John was born on the
Atlantic Ocean during their crossing.
They first settled in Londonderry, New Hampshire where my
great-great-greatgrandfather, William McAllaster (1741) was
born, but very shortly they relocated to a "New" settlement
which is now Bedford, New Hampshire .


* * * * Special Announcement * * * *

A quote of the late Clark McAllaster of Lyons,Kansas ,

"The McAllaster clan may not be the greatest family in the
world, but it's sure way yonder ahead of whoever is second!"


(CMA Family Line HE02)

We are just getting this FAMILY RECORD started, and we need
all the help and information we can get.
So far there has been no family relationship established
between the families of Richard McAllaster and Henry Edward
McAllaster. However,both of these families do spell their
surnames the same, and we know this spelling is quite unique
and rare.
If you are a part of this Mendocino County McAllaster
Family please let us hear from you . Infact we would be
proud to hear from any of our McAllaster families.
