ALLISON, JULIUS C. (1844~1916) Julius C. Allison, confederate veteran, was born in Lounds County, Mississippi. Not much is known about his early life, other than he moved to the city of Marquez in Leon County, Texas in 1853.

Julius Allison enlisted in Company B of the 22nd Texas Infantry on May 1, 1862 in Austin, Texas. He was part of Waul‘s Brigade, Walker‘s Division, and the Trans-Mississippi Department who fought in Louisiana and Arkansas including conflicts at Young‘s Point and Jenkins‘ Ferry. Family records recall that Allison said he also fought at Gettysburg. The company later moved to Shreveport, Louisiana, then Hempstead, Texas. The regiment was disbanded in Hempstead before surrender in May of 1865.

After the war, Allison resumed his life in Marquez, where he was a farmer, and later moved to Thorndale, Texas. He had a cotton gin and bailed cotton, and he had a corn mill and ground corn for a living. His wife‘s name was Ella L. Allison and they had at least one son, a J.T. Allison who also lived in Thorndale and several daughters. Ida Daisy Allison was born September 2, 1872 in Leon County and died March 4, 1968 in George West, Texas where she is buried. It is certain they had a daughter named Effie, and that‘s who Ella lived with, in Oklahoma, when she became older. It is uncertain, but possible they had two other daughters named Addie and Merdy. When Julius C. Allison entered the Confederate Men‘s Home on December 1, 1911, his wife was still alive, but living in Oklahoma with their daughter. We are unsure where she is buried. Allison lived at the home until his death, June 30, 1916, and he was buried at The Texas State Cemetery the next day.
