Long time member, Robert Jesse McAlister CMA member #393, my brother Scott Dykes and I have been working together and have connected a very large section of McAllister / McCallister families living in and around Hopewell Township, York County, PA now known as James, J78. This research was supported by a little booklet compiled by Helen Blasser Zeller found in York Heritage Library, File #3472, York Pa. In addition, there are many news clipping and the U.S. Federal Census that I cross-referenced to this booklet and placed them in booklets to the Genealogy Committee in May 2009. This material and some important DNA results from Robert Jesse placed him in subgroup # 2. This research leads us to believe J78 is the seventh son of Hugh, H02. All paperwork has been submitted and to my knowledge approved, but we need a Gedcom to submit for final approval by the Gen Comm before lines will be merged.

On September 8 2009, brother Scott Dykes, Carl F. McAlister, his wife Joan (Wentz) and I took a field trip to McAlisterville, Juniata County, PA. As we topped the ridge we located McAlistersville, which opened up to a very beautiful valley floor, with great acreage and farm land and steams. Soon we located The Lost Creek Presbyterian Cemetery and listed the many McAlisters buried there as follows. 

Lost Creek Cemetery
By Jeanne Bowman and Scott Dykes, September 2009
With research help from J. A. McAlister, we believe these people to be the family of H02-3.

Lost Creek Presbyterian Cemetery is located on Singer Hill Road, just off Rockland Road in Fayette Township.Comments, connections, cross-references and new submissions are welcome. See the CMA journal, MacAlasdair Clan for Winter, 2013 for more information.
