Notes Three-quarter seated portrait of Margaret Elizabeth Dutch McAllister. She wears a black silk dress with hoop skirt and with large sleeves.
Margaret Elizabeth Dutch was born in Maine circa 1823. She married John P. McAllister, who was also born in Maine, circa 1822. The couple had one son, George, born in Maine circa 1850. Her husband worked in the lumber business in Calais, Maine prior to 1854. By September 1854 they were living in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Their son John Winslow McAllister was born here in 1855. A daughter named Jennie was born in 1865. John P. McAllister is listed in the Oshkosh City Directories from 1857-1876 as a lumberman and lumber dealer. However, no mill or dealership is listed in his name. He was first in partnership with his brother Silas McAllister, but it disolved. From 1869-1876 he operated the Hunter & McAllister Lumber Company on Red River. John P. lived from 1868-1876 at 38 Church Street. The family is no longer listed in the directories after this date. Correspondence in the archives suggests that they were living in Minneola, Minnesota in 1886.
