John McAllister, of Scotch descent, was born at Sharon, N. H., in 1772, came to Stowe in 1804, and located on West Branch. His youngest son, D. J. McAllister, now owns most of the old homestead, though the residence is owned by Mrs. Jane Sanborn. He was twice married, first to Mrs. Priscilla, Smith, May 17, 1796, and second to Miss Mary McKinney, who was the mother of all his children. Mr. McAllister was at the battle of Plattsburgh, and served his townsmen in many positions of trust. He was the father of thirteen children, most of whom arrived at an age of maturity, and six of whom are now living, two, Harvey and David J., in Stowe. Mrs. McAllister survived her husband until September 5, 1840.
