Descendants of Peter Francisco and his wife Susannah Anderson through their daughter Polly (Mary) Francisco Allen and her husband, Richmond Allen:
and additionally, as a supplement carried at the end of this chart, a partial line of Peter and Susannah’s son, James Anderson Francisco, and his wife Judith Woodson Michaux, as requested and supplied by their descendant William Corum.
Polly Francisco Allen and her entire line of descendants were for some unknown reason omitted from the genealogical chart presented by Nannie Francisco Porter and Catherine Fauntleroy Albertson in their pioneering biography, The Romantic Record of Peter Francisco (Staunton, VA: McClure Printers, Inc., 1929). This Porter-Albertson chart has been reproduced many times in numerous other publications (e.g., Peter Francisco, the Portuguese Patriot, by W.A. Moon, which is a more or less standard reference work) without change or emendation, thereby perpetuating the exclusion of several hundred deserving descendants from a record of their heritage.
The present chart is as accurate, as of January 2011, as the members of the Society of the Descendants of Peter Francisco have been able to make it. It has been thoroughly reviewed and corrected by descendants unto the eleventh generation.
I wish to express my deepest gratitude to my wife, Alla, for her work in creating this document. She has done all of the formatting and typing, a job of many hundreds of hours, in the decade that this chart has been in preparation. I also wish to thank Anne Craig Wilson for her support and encouragement of the project.
The Society of the Descendants of Peter Francisco solicits comments, corrections, and/or changes to any of the information contained herein. Communications concerning such items can be done here.
