My gg-grandmother was Anna Alsman daughter of Andrew Alsman. She married Joel H. Epperson in Jessamine Co., KY on 4/18/1823. I believe she died after 1841 in Ralls Co., MO.
I have nothing else on the Alsman family and would appreciate anything you could share.

Hope this gives you some additional information. Your cousin Jo Ann Brant Schmidt
Erik, The Allsman Family reunion is always held in Kansas in July! If you will E-Mail me your mailing address I will send it to Pat Lemmons and she will see to it that you are notified in plenty of time to attend and you would be most welcome.
I believe the Alsman name was changed to Allsman by those who left Kentucky and ended up in central Illinois. Different ones have said there was some sort of family rift, but I don't know if that is true or not, hence the change in spelling. I tend to think it just happened! Going to check out your photo right now. Your cousin, Jo Ann
