Christened Nov. 20, 1814.
About 1844, when Christian was 30 years old, he came to Richland Co, Illinois with his wife and baby Maria. (from descendant, Leah Allen- email@example.com )
But he was not in the 1850 census of Richland Co, IL. (There was a Christian Vonallmen but he was born in 1804, wife Annie, several children.)
from "First Land Purchases of Richland Co, IL"
Christian Allmon - SESE, sec 10, twp 5N, rge 14W, 40 acres, July 11, 1844
[This is in the NE part of Richland Co in German twp] See: http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/archives/irad/township_maps/richland_map.html
The IL state site lists Christian?s purchase in section 30, twp 5N Rg 14W, July 11, 1844.
There was also a William Vonalman who bought land in Sec 36, twp 5N, R10E in 1852. This would have been in Preston twp. just to the west of German twp. I don?t know how he was related. See:
These are the only 2 land claims I have found. None for brother Jacob.
Soon after Joseph was born in Nov, 1857 the family left Illinois and moved to Evansville, Indiana. Here they dropped the ?von? and went by ?Allman.?
Christian became a farmer when he came to Illinois, but it must have not worked out for him because when he moved to Indiana, he got into the broom-making business. It must have been a good business because he was at it until he died after which his surviving sons took it over until 1900. (from descendant, Leah Allen)
