Alison, Hector

Alison, Hector a Presbyterian minister, was examined by the Synod's committee and approved May 28,1745. He was ordained by the Newcastle Presbytery in 1746 at White Clay, and settled at Drawyers. In 1750 he was sent for eight Sabbaths to Western Virginia. In 1753 he asked for a dissolution of his pastor' al relation, but it was not granted for obvious reasons. In 1760 he was allowed to go as chaplain to the Pennsylvania forces, and, in answer to a pressing application made to the Synod in that year by the Church at Albany, N. Y., he was directed to supply the same. He joined the Newcastle Presbytery in 1761. An application from Baltimore on his behalf was not placed in his hands, it being deemed inexpedient. He was dismissed from the presbytery in December of that year with a view to join the South Carolina Presbytery, and was settled at Williamsburg, S. C., where he remained till his death, the date of which is not known. (W. P. S.)
